In the wake of the "Tiger drop" ruling, rules experts, both real and imagined, have begun to offer suggestions for improving Rule 26, which covers penalty drops after a ball goes into a hazard. Two of the best we've heard: 1) Require the player to drop within two club-lengths of the spot from which the original ball was played (in other words, since he's being penalized, give him a bit of wiggle room); and 2) Require the "attempt to drop the ball precisely on the spot from which the original ball was played." (No room for interpretive abuse there.) Both have the virtue of being more specific than the current "playing the ball as nearly at the spot from which the original ball was last played" verbiage. But neither will help Tiger—or Fred Ridley.
