Plugged/embedded ball

Remember when your ball has plugged you may drop it as near to the spot where it plugged, no nearer the hole but you cannot repair the plug mark before you take your shot.   By all means press down the mark made by the ball afterwards but not before as to do so may eliminate an irregularity of surface and improve the lie of the ball contrary to Rule 13-2, the penalty for which is 2 strokes or loss of hole in match play.
