If a ball is deemed to possibly be lost outside a penalty area or out of bounds,
proceed under one of the following:
1)Play a provisional ball, proceed to original ball area in question and look for
up to three minutes. If the original ball is out of bounds or not found in the
three-minute time period, then play provisional ball under Rule 27-2.

this point to a point two club lengths into the nearest edge of fairway, you
may drop a ball no nearer the hole with a TWO shot penalty. You may NOT
go back to where the ball was played originally.
