    New rule on putting with flagstick in.

    13.2a(1) The player must not try to gain an advantage by deliberately moving the flagstick to a position other than centred in the hole. If the player does so and the ball in motion then hits the flagstick, he or she gets the general penalty. The same principle applied prior to 2019 to a ball...

    New rule OOB/ ball lost(2)

    Much the same as us. When I mentioned 'board' I really meant anything where the club (or official section) was the organising committee.

    Do you think the dense trees should be included in the penalty area? For both holes?

    Poor Golf Etiquette

    There are many posts elsewhere reporting tests done over the years and some showing videos. In addition reports from players at all levels giving their experiences over the last couple of weeks. Virtually all of the former show tests confirming the advantage of leaving the flagstick in. Most of...

    Ball falling off tee
