Re: Matter of rule or etiquette
Assuming it is a "friendly" game and not tournament or league play, the unwritten rule
is that good balls need no call. That's the way it is on the tour and we all try to simulate
tour conditions within reasonability. By calling out "Yes" or anything else that isn't "out''
your opponent has created a hindrance and the sportsmanlike thing to do would be to
play 2 balls and clarify the rule regarding no calls for good balls.
In a friendly game, ther rules are somewhat flexible, but common sense should prevail.
