Golf ball lies perilously close to a king brown snake

Some golf balls are simply better off left where they are.

Matt Maguire shared a video of his golf ball lying next to a tree at Broome Golf Club which was better left where it lay.

The ball is clearly visible beside the tree and among the bushes, but also visible is what looks like a king brown snake.

Watch to the end of the video to put a face to the scales.

As I understand it, you’d be entitled to free relief here according to rule 16.2b, Relief For Dangerous Animal Condition. Not a bad result from what was already an almost impossible lie.
