Here’s a golf rule I’ll never have to ponder In Michigan (unless Al Gore comes through on his promise of Global Warming): What to do when your ball is lodged in a coconut tree.
It’s a topic of discussion in the Fiji Times:
Rules of the Week
This week Golf Rules refers to the common problems of golf ball lodged in Palm or Coconut Trees or other trees, lining our fairways. Under the circumstances for a ball lodged in trees unreachable by the player he or she then incurs a penalty under the “unplayable ball” rule and the player play a substitute ball at the original spot from where the last stroke was played
I’m pretty sure this problem was never imagined by golf’s founders in Scotland, either.
