CONTEST: Deeming unplayable.

Hi all.

Time for a little contest about the Rules of Golf:

In the draft to 2019-Rules of Golf a new option is introduced: A player is allowed to deem the ball unplayable and drop outside the bunker on “the straight line”. 

The question is: How many penalty strokes (if any!) does it cost?

Write your answer below.

Among the correct answers I will draw lots about one free copy of my Rules book “First Aid – The Rules of Golf“.

Answers must be written below no later than March 4th.
