Does it make a differnce what you declare if you've hit a bad un? My matchplay opponent the other day described a previous game in which his opponent hit a wild tee shot and then said "I'll hit another". My opponent asked him if he was sure. When the lad said yes, my opponent informed him the second ball was now in play, regardless of whether he found the first... just because he didn't say the magic "provisional" word. Was my opponent guilty of sharp practice, or was the fella he was playing just daft? Your thoughts please.
