James addressed the ball and took a magnificent swing but something went wrong and a horrible slice resulted. The ball went onto the adjoining fairway and hit a man full force. He dropped like a ton of bricks! James and his partner ran up to the stricken victim who lay, quite unconscious, with the  
ball between his feet.

"Good heavens!" exclaimed James. "What should I do?"  

"Don't move him!" cautioned his partner. "If we leave him here he becomes an immovable obstruction and you can either play the ball as it lies or drop it two club lengths away."
