Rules on the green you might know.

Q. You are on the green 30 feet from the hole. You ask for the flagstick to be pulled. The pin is pulled and laid on the ground 20 feet from the hole on the downside of the slight slope. Your putt slides past the hole and curves down the slight slope and your ball hits the flagstick that was placed on the ground.

What is the correct ruling?

A. No penalty for you. You did everything correctly, assuming you asked someone else to remove the pin.
B. One stroke penalty, on the pin tender. No good deed goes unpunished, the person who pulled the pin (was it you) is charged with a one stroke penalty for improperly tending the pin.
C. One stroke penalty for you. If you hit the pin while putting on the green, regardless of if you asked for the pin to be tended, you are awarded a one stroke penalty.
D. Two stroke penalty for you. If you hit the pin while putting on the green, regardless of if you asked for the pin to be tended, you are awarded a two stroke penalty.

And the answer is ..

Rules, rules, and more rules ...

 

Q. Scott had pulled the pin at Larry's request. Scott laid the pin on the green 20 yards away from the hole. Larry's putt with struck a bit too enthusiastically and would have hit the flagstick except for the fact that Scott sprinted to the flagstick and lifted it out of the way of the ball. And as usual, the debate began.

It was decided that since Larry knew the position of the flagstick, did not ask for it to be moved and proceeded with his putt, he accepted the stick placement as it was. However, Scott changed the outcome of the putt when he changed the conditions on the green (moved the flagstick) while the putt was in motion.

What is the correct ruling?

A. No penalty.
B. Scott incurs a one-stroke penalty.
C. Scott incurs a two-stroke penalty.
D. Larry incurs a two-stroke penalty because the agent he authorized to tend the pin (Scott), moved the flagstick that was at rest out of the way of the putt in motion.
