A player plays off the tee into long rough on the right. He takes a provisional as it is medal play and put his ball in the same area.

Question: Does he get 3 mins or 6 mins to find his balls.

the players at our club said 3 mins!

then i proposed this scenario .

If his first ball goes right into the rough, and has provisional goes left into the rough. does he get 3 mis for the first ball and then a further 3 mins for the second Ball?

all looked at each other? so what is the answer, rule wise, ethically, and if your on the tee behind what would you say
