Did you know that one of the most misunderstood golf rules is "Unplayable Lies"
If you have deemed the lie unplayable, there are 3 options available. You may deem the ball unplayable at any place on the course except in a water hazard.
Under a one-stroke penalty, you may play a ball as nearly as possible at the spot from which the original ball was last played, or drop a ball behind the point where the ball is located, keeping that point directly between the hole and the spot on which the ball is dropped, with no limit to how far behind that point the ball may be dropped, or drop a ball within two club-lengths of the spot where the ball is located, but no nearer the hole. However, if the ball is in the bunker, and you elect to use one of the last two options, you must drop the ball inside the bunker.
