Hi!

I just played a course where there was water around the green (not all the way around, some patches of grass on the left side).

I played a shot which landed on the green but rolled off. In my mind that should mean that I drop on the foregreen closest to where the ball went in to the hazard. Instead I was forced to take another shot from the same location I just played from.

Is this a bug or is my knowledge of the rules just messed up? :)

Not your lack of knowledge. nils :)  The drop system in place is fairly basic right now.  We will be working to improve it in the coming months.

I'll cling to that first sentence for a while :)
