I’m really looking forward to your “Sovereign Citizens don’t take OB strokes” YouTube car rant video, that’s for sure. Stick it to the man, bro! Defend your freedoms!!

Throwing in the water and throwing over a boundary fence should be treated differently. Throw over a boundary fence, you should have to replay from your lie. In the water, from the last point it crossed land. And no closer to the hole!

Don't worry about it, it's really nothing. Only takes a few minutes a day of sensible thinking.

Smaller baskets are a gimmick.

This is correct. Everything should be marked hazard where you have an option to play it from where it lies or drop with penalty where it last crossed the hazard line.

Best solution.
