The putting green

When your ball is on the putting green you can repair your pitch mark and any older pitch marks. You cannot repair spike marks or any other damage you might perceive has been done to the green prior to putting out (rule 16.1c). For example, you cannot repair any damage to the hole before you hole out.


This hole has a large putting green with some tricky borrows.
Occasionally, especially in team games, players want to learn as much as possible from the putts of their partners.

Note; you cannot, in any team game, including Texas Scrambles, stand behind your partner when they putt to see how the ball behaves. No one, including caddies, can intentionally stand on, or close to, an extension of the line of anyone else’s putt during a stroke. The penalty for doing so is two strokes and loss of hole in match play. The only exception is when someone does this inadvertently (rule 14.2 b).

Both photographs below show this rule being broken.
