MGA 2017 Q23

MGA 2017 Q23

Postby Doug » Thu Feb 02, 2017 10:12 am

23. A competitor’s tee shot ends up two feet above the hole on a severely sloped putting green. He misses the putt and it rolls 50 feet past the hole and comes to rest on the flat part of the putting green. Believing his chances of sinking the putt from where it originally came to rest are greater than two-putting from where his ball now lies, the competitor places a second ball where his tee shot originally came to rest with the intention of proceeding under stroke and distance.
A fellow-competitor then questions his procedure and says he is required to play the original ball which still lies on the flat part of the putting green 50 feet below the hole. He picks up the second ball and it takes him three additional putts to hole the original ball. Because the competitor still has some doubt in his mind, he replaces the second ball on the spot on which his tee shot originally came to rest and holes the second ball in one additional stroke.

His score for the hole is:
A) 5
B) 6
C) 7
D) 8

I've come up with 3 different answers to this question, but I currently am thinking that a score of 7 is correct. I'd be interested in hearing the breakdown of the score.

My thoughts: 3-3 does not apply. Too late for that.

Once he placed a substituted ball on the putting green with the intention of playing under 27-1 that ball was in play. The original ball became a wrong ball. The 3 putts taken with that ball do not count in his score.

The player took 3 strokes and he incurs 4 penalty strokes. The 3 strokes: 1-tee shot, 2-first putt, 3- holed putt under stroke and distance. The 4 penalty strokes: 2PS for playing wrong ball, 1PS under 27-1, 1 PS under 18-2 for lifting the ball in play.

I look forward to your thoughts!
Wendy

Wendy, I agree and that's the same analysis that I came up with.
