To be fair, occasionally if I lose a ball or walk up to my ball to find it surprisingly OB, I'll sometimes just drop one where my ball should have been or put it just barely back in bounds, add the 2 penalty strokes, and hit my 4th shot from there. But I do this because it's a pace of play issue - I'll only do this if the course is packed. I usually walk, so me walking all the way back to the tee to hit another would be a huge waste of everyone's time. But I do agree, loads of people reverse sandbag and brag about their handicap.
