Manolo Vega tells golf fans how to take drop from water in classic MANOLO-STYLE

Manolo Vega is a golf instructor like no other. He is passionate, funny and entertaining and it is no surprise that he has developed such a large following on social media.

However, there is always method to Manolo's madness and in his latest video, he shows golf fans and aspiring players how to take a drop if your ball finishes in a water hazard.

Manolo makes it clear that if your ball finishes in water, you should make sure to take out your driver, because this is the longest club in your bag, and use it to mark out your two club-length allowance.

You should make sure that when you take your drop, the ball was must be no nearer to the hole than where you have marked your two club-lengths. 

Although this is unlikely to happen, Manolo demonstrates that if your ball rolls back into the water after your first drop, you can take two more drops.

If your ball is still rolling back into the water on the third drop, you may place the ball where it landed, so that you can carry on with your round.

Manolo also makes it clear that you must take the drop from knee height as opposed to shoulder height, which is an old rule.
