So many wrong deciscions, bad advice etc, I'm having trouble figuring who is in the right/wrong. Match Play between A and B, with another match being played in the same group.
Player A hooks his ball into some trees near the practice fairway (can't exactly determine where it has gone), reloads after his opponent has hit and it goes further left onto the practice fairway. In between tee shots they notice the ball collector machine making its rounds, he says to the group that machine has probably picked up his balls.
He is right, gets up there and both his original and provisional have been collected and are sitting in the machine. At this point, its an easy decision however his opponent with some certainty says he needs to go back to the tee and hit his 5th, one of the players in the other match agrees, player A doesn't but reluctantly concedes the hole.
They walk pass our pro shop and A asks what should have happened, they tell him about outside agency and also say the because B has given the wrong ruling that in fact he should lose the hole. We are in the process of piling wrong on wrong...….I think.
They agree to replay the hole assuming the match is squared, at this point they are not counting the disputed hole.
Player A wins the replayed hole after they do in fact square the match.
I'm confused however regardless of B's incorrect ruling, A conceded the disputed hole so in fact B should win the match.
