Golf: Faldo is playing it safe.

NICK Faldo found himself in another rules quandary yesterday - just four days after being disqualified from the Players' Championship in Florida.

Six holes into the BellSouth Classic in Atlanta, Faldo called for an official so that he did not run into trouble again.

This time his dilemma came when he took relief from casual water and his ball ran on to a line marking ground under repair.

He was preparing to play again when playing partner Billy Andrade asked him if he was sure he did not have to drop the ball a second time.

"Nick was worried he might be disqualified for the second week running," said Andrade. Tournament official Steve Carmen said that Faldo had the option of carrying on or dropping again. He chose the former and parred the 569-yard hole.
