10 Rules Golfers Still Get Wrong

In this series we pick out 10 rules that many golfers are unaware or are unsure of. In competition, some of these could lead to penalty shots or even disqualification.


In some cases, these rules are there to help you, so they are well worth knowing.


In our newsletter, we will be covering one rule per week, to assist you with your rules knowledge on the course.


1. Repairing ball marks

You can repair ball marks on the green at any time but you cannot repair a ball mark on the fringe if it's on your line. So, for example, if you are on the fringe and fancy putting it, but there is a deep pitch mark on your line in the fringe, you cannot repair that.


You can repair them if they are not on your line and not interfering with your line of play though.

The only instance where you could repair a pitch mark on your line in the fringe would be if that ball mark was created after your ball had come to rest.


For example, if somebody hits a shot and leaves a pitch mark after your ball has come to rest, then you can repair that. That scenario is rather rare, however.




Please be sure to look at the back of the scorecard for our local rules. If a player is unsure of the right call on the golf course, their 1st point of call is to verify with their marker.




With only 4 qualifiers left for the final, and a MINIMUM of 6 games needed, if you have not yet played an event, I'm afraid it's too late.


Remember for next year, in order to get to the final of the ECM Monthly IPS, you need to be IN IT TO WIN IT!
