    Re: Checking Alignment Prior to Shot

    Thanks for the confirmation, I shall be using my club to aid my alignment today. I wonder if I should tell my FCs before I do it, or simply wait for the objections!

    Just do it. But ask any objectors show you the rule in the little book; which is in your bag.

    Remember that from the 1st January 2019 a player will no longer be able to place a club on the ground (or anything else) and align themselves using it. Proposed New rule H2.

    Re: Checking Alignment Prior to Shot

    I carry both the rule book and also the rules on my phone. Today, I was on my home course and didn't use my club for alignment. Tomorrow and Wednesday, I have away matches and will definitely need to check my alignment, so will use my club.

    I am surprised that I have not seen anyone doing this.
