Golfer strikes a golf shot

    Drop – A drop is required under certain situations according to the Rules of Golf sometimes resulting in a penalty. The action of dropping the ball back in play from a hazard is done by extending one's arm fully out shoulder height and dropping the ball so that is rest in play and no closer to the pin. Example “Jill had to take a drop after she found out she could not play her ball out of the brush, resulting in a stroke penalty.”
