Tommy, this is exactly why you have to know the rules yourself, because someone like you will give a bad ruling to the other player and have him penalized when he should have got a free drop. “Abnormal ground conditions” should never cause a player to have to return to the tee box. when all 4 players seen exactly which direction the ball went and are 95% sure that the ball is in the area of that condition. And the wrong tee theory? I think everyone playing in the World Am should be forced to play from the back tees. Hey, it’s a tournament. It shouldn’t matter, right?
