Flagsticks & Bunkers – Updated ruling from the R&A


FLAGSTICKS: Under the latest advice from the R&A, centring of the flagstick may be allowed while another player putts. In this circumstance, the fellow competitor is not attending the flagstick, just centring it. The person holding the flagstick with the putter must keep it in the centred position until ball comes to rest or until it is clear it is not going to hit the flagstick in any way. 

Full updated advice is posted on the notice board

BUNKERS: Local Rule has been introduced to allow preferred lies in bunkers. (Model Local Rule E-3).  Please note: The distance for preferred lies in the bunker is limited to 6 inches and the area cannot be smoothed before placing.
