RE­SPECT THE DAN­GER

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Play Your Best -

The po­ten­tial out­comes of a ball hit­ting the stone wall are rad­i­cally di­ver­gent, but strate­gi­cally, it should be re­garded as a wa­ter haz­ard. Sure, with a lucky strike a ball could pro­pel for­ward near the green, or safely back­wards 15 to 20 me­tres to where a per­fect lay-up would’ve been played. But you’ll see lots of bad kicks, too. If a ball finds a crevice in the rocks or set­tles by the wall where you can’t swing, that’s an un­playable lie. You’ll have to take a drop and add a penalty stroke, same as if it were in a creek.
