Golf’s New Rules (2019): New Procedure for Dropping a Ball


When dropping your ball under the new Rules, the likelihood you will need only one drop will increase… while the randomness of your resulting lie will be preserved. The procedure is simple: hold the ball at knee height… let go of it so it falls straight down… and make sure that it lands and comes to rest in the relief area. Don’t throw, roll, or spin the ball and don’t let it hit you as it falls.
