THE CUP

There have been changes to the cup. Instead of a “cap” over the hole, there is now a “plate” setting on top of the cup liner. Therefore, the ball can fall in about 1 inch below the surface of the green. Unfortunately, the ball can also “bounce” off the plate and leave the hole. Thus, use some judgement as to if the ball would have stayed in. If the ball does not touch the plate, it probably would not have fallen in the hole. If it bounces off the plate at a reasonable speed, it should be counted.

 

BUNKERS

There are still no rakes in the bunkers. If your lie is in an unraked area (e.g. footprints), take relief by dropping the ball (from knee height) at the nearest point of relief, no closer to the hole.
