As far as I know. Ball is in play when it is dropped.. Please supply a little more information. No Need. 20-6. A ball incorrectly substituted, dropped or placed in a wrong place or otherwise not in accordance with the Rules but not played may be lifted, without penalty, and the player must then proceed correctly.

Definitely need more information! Do you mean a ball was dropped accidentally? If so, it's not in play, just pick it up!

Sorry was not very clear, done from mobile and now back in front of computer Player in Matchplay hits drive into lateral hazard. Stakes are set back from edge of hazard. Player takes drop thinking his ball is outside the hazard line, before we arrive on the scene. Player is having a practise swing as we arrive. I informed him that where he had dropped he was still within the hazard. Player corrected the error of the 1st drop and dropped ball outside the hazard. Has he incurred any penalties for the practise swing within the hazard? He would have played the ball from thar position including grounding the club, maybe more practise swings if we had not arrived.

But he didn't play the ball, he re-dropped. So no penalties, other than one stroke to drop out of the hazard. You mentioned it was match play. Who was the silly buggar who told him he was still in the hazard before he made a stroke at the ball, unless he was on the same team?

Are you suggesting his opponent should knowingly allow him to breach a rule and then call a penalty?

What he would have done is of no consequence. IMO as he did not play the ball & corrected his error before playing a shot, No Penalty.

Practise swing, before the error of drop was pointed out to him, did make contact with ground in the hazard........

I was not playing him but the fellow sharing cart was, yes we could have let him go but we did the right thing.......... My opponent nearly hit a wrong ball but my cart sharing pointed it out to him before he did..... I did abuse him but we both agreed it was the "right" thing to do

When the ball was dropped, it was in play. Not in play on a correct spot under Rule 26-1, but in play nevertheless. When the player took a practice swing touching the ground in the hazard when the ball was lying in the hazard, he should have lost the hole, but there's of course no penalty, when the opponent didn't notice this :-)

Hi, was just wondering what would happen in this situation, I have heard of similar things occuring. One was A, B, C and D getting ready to tee off, A walks over and tee's his ball up from the whites instead of the blues. B, C and D point this out to each other but do not tell A until he has finished his shot.

If it was match play, no penalty, but A could be asked by his opponent to play again from the correct place. If it was stroke play, A would never play with those arseholes again.
