Ruling Range - July 2017
July 31, 2017
Standing in the middle of the 18th fairway, your dreams of breaking 80 for the first time are just 141 yards away. Hit a nine iron into the middle of the green, two putt and you're Mr. 79 moving forward. You pull 'er back and flush it. But unfortunately, it's too perfect, and the ball sails over the green and lands in extremely deep heather grass. Somewhat remarkably, you find your ball buried, and you know right away that you can't get a club on it. As you ponder picking it up and dropping it within two club lengths of your unplayable lie, your supportive golf buddy says, "Don't drop it in the deep grass. Bring it on the other side of the cart path and try to get it up and down from the putting green." Puzzled, you say, "Can I really do that?!"
