  3. Rule explantion svp

    I took out all the Karma references but why is this a penalty? Can't a big divot on the green be repaired before I chip onto the green?? This is one of the most weird things that I've ever heard of happening on a golf course. Bart Bryant was docked two shots in a bizarre penalty that...

    John is playing and hits a high flop shot from about 20 yards out.... it bounces twice and rolls into the hole... He celebrates with a big cheer and a fist pump and as he walks up to the green to retrieve his ball from the bottom of the cup, a good sized bullfrog jumps out of the hole and the ball...
