    Never heard that one in 60 years!

    A mate of mine was playing the other day when one of the group playing behind him approached him on the tee. "When you put the pin back in the hole would you please be sure to unfurl it so that we can see which way the wind is blowing it", he said. My mate was flabbergasted, couldn't think of anything to say but "OK".

    I just thought this was standard courtesy and something to check before leaving a green.

    I would want to know who furled it in the first place!
    some metal woods,
    any old irons,
    Pick up balls....

    If the wind was blowing strong enough to make a different, wouldn't that blow the flag open itself anyway??

    these people are usually the ones that make these silly demands only to blade it 30 yards through the green.

    Some people stick their middle finger up in the air to judge the wind, maybe your mate should have tried that in response

    I did get asked once which way the wind was blowing by someone smoking a cigarette.
