Drop Zones

Postby dormie1360 » Sat Jan 23, 2016 6:46 pm

Is a drop zone considered through the green? If a player plays a stroke from a drop zone and the ball goes out of bounds, must the player drop on the previous spot or may he drop anywhere in the drop zone?

IMO its being a DZ is only relevant until the first stroke is made. After that it loses its special categorisation. The ball must be played under 27-1b.

Further, a drop zone is normally attached to a specific Rule, such as an additional option for 26-1. If a player used the drop zone under 26-1, and hit the ball out of bounds, Rule 26-1 is no longer applicable, hence the drop zone is not applicable either - it's just another area through the green.
