Rule of the Month –  Dropping

This month, it’s about  dropping the ball, how hard can that be? Starting with where to drop the ball while taking relief – there are a number of considerations. If you don’t do it correctly, you can watch the penalties tick up. Once you drop, how can you be assured it is an acceptable drop? When can you place it? These questions and more are served up for review. Read the NCGA blog post.
