Ah, modern technology. Jerry Kelly owes a bit of thanks to the modern telephoto lens as he was able to shave at least a stroke, maybe two, off his third round 68 when his ball got stuck in a palm tree on the sixth hole. Kelly ended up tied for second place with Y.E. Yang and five behind leader Rory Sabbatini, when he salvaged a bogey on the difficult sixth hole. After his drive failed to fall out of the tree he was able to identify his ball with a photographer’s camera. That enabled him to take a drop with a one stroke penalty instead of incurring the “stroke and distance” penalty assessed for a lost ball. Hey, whatever it takes, as longs as it is within the rules.
