Quote of the Week:

Golf is not just an exercise; it's an adventure, a romance,
a Shakespeare play in which disaster and comedy are intertwined.

Here is the reposting of all those "really bad ones" from 2016.

Ask The Rules Guy (From Golf Magazine, July 2017, pg 30)

Question: At my local course, a player hit his drive toward the rough
and into a rotted tree stump. The ball embedded in its own pitch mark
in the stump. Was he entitled to a free drop? Would it have mattered
had the stump been in the fairway?
-MICHAEL O·CALLAHAN. MELBOURNE. AUSTRALIA

Response: No, a player does not get relief for a ball embedded in a
tree stump. The only question is whether the area has been marked or
designated as ground under repair (far more likely in the fairway
scenario, alas). If so, the player is entitled to relief without
penalty. If not, he can play the ball as it lies or declare it
unplayable. Now, should the player choose the latter route, there are
three well-known options available, all under penalty of one stroke.
If, that strikes you as a rotten piece of news, well, the player is
still in much better shape than the tree.
