Clarification of some common rules:

How to Drop the Ball

After determining the nearest point of relief, you may stand outside the drop area, no closer to the hole, and extend your hand to the side dropping the ball from shoulder height. The ball may roll up to two (2) club lengths no closer to the hole. If the ball rolls farther than that, you must re-drop. If, after dropping two times, the ball continues to roll past two (2) club lengths, you must place the ball where it first struck a part of the course when dropped.

Lost Ball or Out-of-Bounds

After looking for a maximum of five (5) minutes, you must go back to where the shot was originally played from and replay, incurring a stroke and distance penalty.

Casual Water

Find the nearest point of relief, no closer to the hole where neither you or your ball lie in the water that can be seen without pressing your feet up and down. You may then drop your ball--see how to drop the ball above--within one (1) club length from that point, no nearer to the hole at no penalty.
