    New 2019 rules

    I see that the rules in 2019 are to allow a player to drop where a ball may be lost or OOB for a 2 shot penalty if allowed by the Cub under a local rule

    Any views?

    If that is to be implemented I think it's an ace ruling.

    I think that's a really good idea, it could save the walk of shame.

    I can see some discussions about where the ball went OB or where it's lost.
    Not always a simple as it may seem.
    Will this mean provisionals won't be required..?

    Could you provide a link for that one as I was unaware of that one and cannot find it on the R&A site.

    Trying to clarify that one.

    E.g. I hit my 2nd shot OB, consequently I drop and play another ball to the green for 4. Alternatively, I follow my original second shot to where it went OB and drop a ball there for another two shots making 4 before playing to the green for 5?

    Whilst I see the pro's of speeding up play, wouldn't I potentially save myself a shot (possibly a point) by going back to play again?

    Edit: just watched the video, and that still doesn't clarify

    I guess it would be risky taking a provisional given that the 2 shot penalty would put you on the fairway
