    Re: Yet another golfing Rule myth...

    I was once a 'mentor' for one of our academy ladies. One time I took her out to play a few holes I noticed she was spending an inordinate amount of time teeing the ball up. Teeing it up. Looking at it. Taking tee out and re-teeing and then she looked at me frustrated - and commented 'it's so hard to make sure you get the ball exactly on the line between the two markers'
    to infinity and beyond...

    ...well from 10.0 to 9.4 this year would be nice.

    And last medal of the year (Oct) saw me play to handicap but CSS was +1 so that was me down 0.2 from 8.3 to 8.1

    Please be more specific about when you do not need to mark the position of the ball before lifting it.

    You can only replace your ball when its your turn to putt.
    As an advocate of ready golf i mark it, and line it immediately so Im ready. He didnt think that was allowed.

    Big argument after that one.

    He might be winding you up I do not have to mark my ball if I decide such as: I am out of the hole; I will not be able to score any stableford points; the ball to be lifted was a provisional and I have decided I am not going to need it.

    Of course he might not be If you are through the green and can be 100% confident of where your ball is sitting and you are taking relief you can lift without marking as we are only advised to mark the position of our ball. Of course this leaves you very open to confusion, complaints and accusations if you replace or drop it under the rules relative to a position different to that which the others you are playing with consider where it was before being lifted. Plus measuring and checking distance relative to your ball position become tricky if you have not marked where your ball was as rest.

    Because I can think of a lot of occasions when you must mark the position of the ball before lifting it.

    Eg under the allowable winter rule before cleaning and placing, lifting to identify it, lifting it to remove a movable obstruction (eg stone in a bunker).
