These were the cup liners where @NCGolfer sometimes plays golf, and where he used to play a lot of his golf.
I thought they were a good blend of not making the hole behave oddly (like a foam noodle that's a bit too tall) and not getting in the way like some of the "ejector" sticks.
Also, though, I look forward to the day when we get back to just letting the ball go in the hole, all the way, and getting it out. There seems to be virtually NO data to support the idea that COVID could be spread this way, and if you were still worried about it, rub some hand sanitizer on yourself now and then (and don't pick the ball up and immediately lick your fingers or rub your eyes).
If you go back to the very first post, @mvmac makes exactly this point, that many of us benefit from turning the feet out because it allows us to turn our hips more freely while remaining centered. The best players in the world are, for the most part, substantially more flexible than the rest of us mortals.
