which ground keepers failed to mow.

had Not hit the tree and play the ball from there.

by charging himself or herself with a penalty.

is deemed to have dropped. The law of gravity supersedes the Rules of Golf.

be blown in, may be blown in. This does not apply to balls more than three inches
from the hole. No one wants to make a travesty of the game.

as golf balls should float. Senior golfers should not be penalized for manufacturers’
