I know right, the amount of times I have been forced to play off a lie where there's a bit of timber or hunk of plastic stuck under my ball really grinds my gears.

 

Instead of grinding your gears,  why not take the free relief available to you the next time your ball is on a bit of plastic?  Lift your ball, remove the plastic, drop your ball and play it.  And if the bit of wood isn't natural  in the sense that it's been made into something, do the same.  And if you can't remove either then take relief from the nearest point of relief.   There are rules around to help you!

On the any height drop...people will find the free relief drop in a smaller area and required to play the ball in the small drop area will work better if drop height small. Sorry messy sentence.
Low height drop in bunker much fairer.

I  teed my ball up on a plastic tee on the 2nd this morning.  Sometimes I tee my ball up on a wooden tee. As I straightened up I thought, "Colin, I think you've been suckered."    

 

I do have a fairly sharp sense of humour and both use and recognise irony frequently, but I fear I've been remarkably dense this time round.   :blush:

I can't remember the last time i was in a divot in the fairway, it doesn't happen that often so what's the big deal?
To be fair i blast it past where tge choppers finish :)

I have another advantage. I don't hit as far as the choppers. But I might get to his lordship's massive divot with my second (third).
