If you wish to hide your character,
do not play golf.

Ask The Rules Guy (From Golf Magazine, August 2017, pg 32)

Question: During a tournament, I hit a wayward drive. Unsure
if I'd find it, I announced that I'd hit another and play it if
my first was lost. It wasn't, but the committee later penalized
me after a fellow competitor told them that I had given the
definition of "provisional" but not the p-word itself. Seriously?

Response: Seriously. Decision 27-2a/l states that a player's
statement either must mention "provisional ball" or make clear
that he is proceeding under Rule 27-2a. Variations on "I think
that's lost - I'm reloading" don't cut it. You need to be
specific; otherwise, you've proceeded under stroke and distance,
as your original ball is now considered lost. Specific
announcements aren't limited to provisionals. When lifting
your ball for identification (Rule 12-2) or to determine if
it is unfit for play (Rule 5-3), you must first inform your
fellow competitors or opponents what you're up to, or
be penalized one stroke.
