Depends upon from where the stroke was made.

 

1) When Ball Played from Putting Green Accidentally Hits Any Person, Animal or Movable Obstruction (Including Another Ball in Motion) on Putting Green: The stroke does not count and the original ball or another ball must be replaced on its original spot 

 

2) When ball played from anywhere else. If a player’s ball in motion accidentally hits any person or outside influence, the ball must be played as it lies,

Does another putter fall in the definition of "movable obstruction"? It's considered to be "equipment", but I'm unsure how it would be treated on the green.

If a player’s ball in motion accidentally hits any person or outside influence:

  • There is no penalty to any player.

  • This is true even if the ball hits the player, the opponent or any other player or any of their caddies or equipment.

From the Definition of 'Obstruction'

    • Playing devils advocate here because I can't comprehend what its like to be a millionaire and want to be a zillionaire - but I think the point is there is no competition in LIV just money. Thus still no meaningful choice to them. LIV can pay but can't provide competition, PGA Tour has the competition but doesn't pay that well. Most PGA Tour players are not making a ton of money, especially compared to other US sports.
    • Day 650: Played 18 this morning at North Kingstown. Driver was dreadful. I’m at a loss as to what is different on the course.
    • Historically, I've had difficultly getting the ball off the deck with woods. I've new Callaway Mavrik MAX 3, 5, and 7-woods.  Haven't swung the 3w, yet, nor have I yet played the other two, but I was able to get the ball off the deck much more easily, in range practice, with the 5 and 7-woods than I had with my previous woods. You might also consider hybrids.  I couldn't hit my 4i worth a darn. Replaced it with a Mavrik 4h on a "I wonder...?" impulse and I'm able to hit that well.  Again: At least in range practice. Whether any of those improvements will translate to play remains a question I hope to answer this season. My main concern with replacing anything under my 5i with woods or hybrids would be play out of the rough--from where I far too often find myself playing 
    • All you can ask for is to have at least a bit of optimism in August. I've even heard Bears fans who have some belief (for some reason). Let's try to keep Mr. Swift healthy all year this time.   
    • Defense is going to be the big question mark.  I love Aiden Hutchinson, hope he can adjust to the NFL quickly, but I'm not concerned about him getting there.  Maybe a healthy Jeff Okudah helps the DB group, jury is still out on him since he hasn't been able to stay healthy since he was drafted. Offense is exciting though.  Jared Goff may not be the long term answer, but I also try not to forget he's been to a Super Bowl.  He's a very accurate passer.  He developed a good rapport with St. Brown by the end of last season, and when Jameson Williams gets healthy there will be some legit weapons.  And in the long term, Lions are building a good foundation, and they may be able to simply slide in the answer at quarterback in the future. I'm biased, but also optimistic.  Hard Knocks made it really easy to get excited for the season.
