Ball or Ball-Marker Helping or Interfering with Play
Have updated the Rules of Match Play page, and downloads, to include the Match Play ruling on players requesting to have a ball left or leaving a ball on the Putting Green that may help a player’s play.
In Stroke Play this would normally lead to a General Penalty being imposed, but in Match Play is perfectly permissible.
In a match, a player may agree to leave his or her ball in place to help the opponent since the outcome of any benefit that may come from the agreement affects only their match.
