Interesting situation on saturday in our 4.
Player A hits ball onto a par 3. goes up and marks his ball and picks up to clean ball.
The ball must have fallen from his pocket onto the front edge of the green further from the hole.
when it was player A turn to putt he putted the ball from where it was on front edge up towards the hole, as he walked up he passed his marker and realised he had played from the wrong position.
He picked up his ball and placed behind marker.
and proceeded to putt out from there, He had 3 putts, and so wrote down a 4
His marker called it as picking up a ball in play (it was a stroke round and hence wrote dnf on hole..
Player A said that his ball wasn't in play because he had marked it.
I along with the other member in the group felt it should have been 1 shot penalty for either testing green or playing from wrong position.
