Ask Linda #1461-Free drop for ball near cart path
The ball was two inches from the edge of the slightly elevated cart path. I could hit the ball, but it was likely my club would also strike the cement on the follow through of any shot. Do I get a free drop on this ball?
Lou from Phoenix, Arizona
Absolutely. The player is entitled to free relief from an immovable obstruction that interferes with the area of his intended swing [Rule 24-2a].
