    USGA/R&A Finalize 2019 Rules of Golf

    My trig goes back to when Adam was a lad so is pretty derelict now. I was guessing that Fourputt would have it off pat. The circle is the size of a ball

    I can't find a protractor but taking the the diameter of a golf ball, what is the gap between two lines diverging at 1 degree? Or another way, by what would you miss the target for each mm that you are off your aim.
  3. Here's another one TESTED: Flagstick In (vs) Flagstick Out? Should golfers leave the flagstick in or take the flagstick out? {VIEW RESULTS}

    The 'new rule' is a Local Rule and has to be in force in order to use it.

    That will be good. I was discussing it with out club committee yesterday and was asked to contact the R&A but they are so under resourced it could take weeks. I must admit though I have never seen how such a short line (even on a casino chip) can be used accurately to point to a target a couple of yards or more away. No doubt someone can do the math and calculate how much the ball will miss by for every mm error in placing the marker and per metre of travel.

    As said, the ball is excluded but seemingly not a lined ball marker

    Yes, the model LR says "... by placing the original ball or another ball ...."
