Danni the D Grade Golfer hits her tee shot way left into thick bushes on the 14th hole at Wombat Hills.After 1 minute of searching, she finds and identifies her ball and decides to take unplayable ball relief. Unable to retrieve her original ball, she drops another ball correctly in the lateral relief area. As she is working through her yardage book and waiting for others to play, a child crawls under the bush and retrieves her ball. The child asks the caddie if he can keep the ball, when the caddie realises it is not Danni the D Grade Golfer’s ball. The caddie advises Danni, and they continue searching for her ball, finding it about 1 minute later, however now 5 minutes after they began searching originally.She picks up the dropped ball and continues play with the original ball, holing out in 5 more strokes. She tees off on her next hole – what is her hole score for the 14th hole?
