    Yes, sensible compromise.

    The 1 or 2 club measure is common sense and much better than the measured alternative.

    That rules wasn't broke so no need to fix!

    Re: New 2019 rules

    I assume that, once dropped, the ball would be allowed to roll a further 2 clubs as is the case now..?
    If so, you could end up nearly 5 yards onto the fairway assuming a 45" driver.....
    Does that sound right after being 40 yards away in the cabbage?
    In theory you could still get a nett par on a shot hole in this scenario, where you'd be lucky to get back to the fairway at all otherwise.
    Is this fair, in competition, to a guy who hits the fairway, just missed the green, chips on and 2 putts for the same score..?

    I believe the 2 club roll will not be in the 2019 rules. The ball will have to stay within the 1-2 club area.

    Ok...hadn't seen anything but it makes sense.
    Still, the scenario above still stands, especially in the video.

    And the further from the fairway your ball is, the bigger the "general area"

    Also on the plus side Caddy's will have less to do for some players, no more standing on an extension of the players line from when the player begins to take their stance

    I am not saying it should be a rule of golf. I have a lot of experience with players who either do not read the local rules in the first place (even when they are on the back of the card) or only know 'half' a rule. So for simplicity's sake I would have it on every hole not just a few holes as you are suggesting

    Caution needed! Best not to talk about a ball being in the gneral area of something as general area has been given a specific, defined meaning in the Rules:

    General Area
    The area of the course that covers all of the course except for the other four defined areas: (1) the teeing area the player must play from in starting the hole he or she is playing, (2) all bunkers, (3) all penalty areas, and (4) the putting green of the hole the player is playing.
    The general area includes:
    • All teeing locations on the course other than the teeing area, and
    • All wrong greens.
