Here is a ruling for you to chew on.

 

player A finds himself in a GUR garden bed, so he is entitled to a free drop.

 

Player A drops his ball and it rolls more than 2 club lengths and hits his buggy wheel.

 

discussion begins on ruling

 

is ball in play with a penalty for hitting his equipment.

 

or 

 

does he re drop as rolled outside the drop area with no penalty

The ball can roll up to 2 club lengths from the margin of the drop zone but not beyond and then has to be re-dropped.

So no penalty and drop again, if it happens a second time then place where it first contacted the ground on the 2nd drop. If it fails to stay when placed then determine the nearest place it will stay and place. Ball back in play and play on !

A correction - the "margin of the drop zone" is irrelevant.  The ball can roll up to 2 club lengths from the spot it first touched the course within the drop zone.

So I put a tee in the ground to identify the nearest point of relief and then take the distance allowed from there ( 2 club lengths for instance ) and mark that position with another tee, ok so far ? Now I drop the ball next to the first tee and it rolls past the second tee not nearer the hole ( 2 club lengths = 90" or 7'6" or 2.3 metres ) by afew inches, do I have to re-drop the ball or has it not rolled outside that margin by 2 club lengths yet ? Or if I drop it at the further tee can it roll another 2 clubs lengths again ?

Yes.  Now I drop the ball next to the first tee and it rolls past the second tee not nearer the hole ( 2 club lengths = 90" or 7'6" or 2.3 metres ) by afew inches, do I have to re-drop the ball or has it not rolled outside that margin by 2 club lengths yet ? Only need to re-drop if it rolls more than two club lengths from where it first struck a part of the course. Or if I drop it at the further tee can it roll another 2 clubs lengths again ?  Yes - up to two club lengths from where it first struck a part of the course between the two tees.  The tees only define the area in which the ball must first strike a part of the course.

Is winter in Aus really this long?  More than a three week suspension?

I suspended play today. Mean weather at my place in the Blue Mountains.
Sunny but cold. I think it made about 7 degrees but winds gusting over 65km/hr made apparent temperature at or below zero ....
You have to be keen and a lot younger than me to play in this weather.

I'm sure it was here on one Tuesday this year.

I was under the impression that you were getting winter today in Brisbane.
