My 2nd shot to the green was over a tree and over a lake, about 140 yds. I didn't see the ball land because of the tree but one of the other players in the 4 ball said my ball had gone in the lake. A quick look in and it was deep and dirty so took a drop for a penalty, then walked round the water and saw my ball on the grass at the other side so hit that onto the green for a 5. Then the person who had told me it was in the water said it couldn't count as I hadn't declared the 2nd as a provisional. But why would I have done after he had told me it was lost. I suppose he was right but it doesn't seem fair.
