A woman golfer at the Oliva Nova Golf Course in Valencia, Spain hit her ball into a tough situation and has taken a drop as her shot ended up in a hazardous location. This will cost her or any other play a stroke depending on the circumstances that occurred to create this situation. This does not help her in making par on this hole but sometimes your ball ends up in impossible places and a drop shot is your only choice.A drop ball must also be done in a certain way and only by the player who took this shot. You must hold the ball at shoulder height with your arm fully extended forward and then drop it. This is where the next golf shot will be taken from and the round continues as usual.A ball drop is used in several instances such as around water hazards, fences, roads, drains, sprinklers or when you run into abnormal ground wear and tear. These are all taken into consideration when a drop is required for you next shot to be feasible.Golf has a variety of rules just like that of any other sport but in reality most people find it very enjoyable except for the few that get frustrated at a bad shot or two. The Oliva Nova Golf Course in Oliva Nova, Valencia is a magnificent course to partake in some exercise, fun, sun and scenery while holidaying in Spain.Woman playing golf at the Oliva Nova Golf Course, Club de Golf Oliva Nova in the town of Oliva Nova, an 18 hole golf Course, Costa Blanca, Valencia, Spain, Europe.
