Misunderstood Rules 10: Placing under winter rules when you should drop

When winter rules / preferred lies are in place more than a few golfers feel they can place rather than drop when taking relief on the fairway.

You may feel that the drop then place procedure as in the video doesn’t make much difference to just placing in the first place. However when the rules require the ball to be dropped you must drop it – you can only place it when the rules require it to be placed!

Remember what rule you are using and make sure you apply that rule properly.
