I’m not going to sewer my friend by using his name but when I was first learning how to golf 10+ years ago I went to a course beside a cemetery.
I sprayed the ball as left as it could possibly go and unfortunately it landed on a nearby grave. I asked my friend if I could pick it up and move it. He said that was against the rules and I would lose the hole automatically(total and utter bogus). As the idiot I am, I believed him. I said a prayer, apologized to the deceased and hit the ball.
I feel this guys pain.
Friends are assholes sometimes.
