I had a friend who in a club comp off the first tee nearly missed the ball and it went 2 yards. He had a bit of a brain freeze and just picked it up and re teed it.

His partners (not me) said it was 2 shot penalty hence 4 off the tee.

I reckon though it should just be 3 off the tee as you can declare a ball unplayable anywhere, and if unplayable from the tee you can re tee it.

I wouldnt like to bet on it though, but what is right?

IMO you need to declare rather than just picking up the ball. His partner obviously believed he had not declared the ball unplayable.

If the ball was not declared unplayable he shouldn't have re-teed the ball,
but just dropped it as close to where it was picked up.

If I hit my opening tee shot 2 yards I would pick it up and walk to the clubhouse.

i played behind a bloke who put 2 ob off first tee, then fresh aired it, then scabbed it a few feet, he re teed, i doubt his score mattered at this point,
then he heeled it into the hedge 20 yards or so in front and to the left of hit a solid trunk and rebound straight back to him, he took a swing at it, missed and the ball went ob behind him.

he says thats me done and went home, lol

I don't think its his fault, there is something inherently wrong with golf if that is possible.

Someone will have to think of a new way to swing the club or something like that, something is wrong with the present way of doing things
