Twitter Survey Question RESULTS  
Kind of a mixed return, but dropping the ball at Knee Height had the biggest % of people disagreeing with the rule.  We think the percentage matches the % of people with a bad back...:) 

Dropping at Knee Height - 38%
3 Minute Search - 33%
Flagstick Left in Hole - 23% 
Balled Moved on Green - 6%

With the World Golf Championship being played at 7800 ft in elevation and all the talk about adapting to longer yardages due to thin air, would it be wrong for elite level players to play with a ball that impacts ball flight the other way?
