Spiranac believes all golfers should be able to move their golf ball when it lands in a divot in the fairway. Do you agree?

Paige Spiranac: "You should get FREE DROPS from divots in the fairway"

Paige Spiranac believes the time has come to finally allow free drops when finding a divot in the fairway. 

Spiranac made her feelings be known on Twitter last night after watching Lee Westwood send his drive scampering down the heart of the fairway on the par-4 18th hole at Bay Hill in the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational, only for it to end up in a divot. 

REVEALED: PGA REF TELLS GOLFMAGIC WHY THE DIVOT RULE WILL NEVER CHANGE

 

 

Westwood, who trailed his playing partner Bryson DeChambeau by one shot down the final hole, duly sent his mid-iron into the heart of the green but could only match the American's par to finish in the runner-up spot. 

Spiranac tweeted in capital letters: "YOU SHOULD GET FREE DROPS FROM DIVOTS IN THE FAIRWAY"

 

 

This isn't the first time the issue has been raised in the game. Far from it. It's been a talking point for many years. 

It was certainly an even bigger talking point off the back of Spiranac's tweet on Sunday night.
