Rule of the Day

20-1/6.5 Ball-Marker Pressed Down by Opponent

In a match, the player's ball-marker on the putting green is pressed down by the opponent. Is the opponent in breach of the Rules?

No. Rule 18-3b does not apply to ball-markers. However, if the ball-marker were moved such that it no longer accurately marked the position of the ball, in equity (Rule 1-4), the opponent would incur a penalty of one stroke. If the opponent pressed down the ball-marker with the authority of the player and that act caused it to move, there would be no penalty to either player (see Decision 20-1/6).

JoAnne Gunderson won her third U.S. Women’s Amateur title in six years, beating Ann Baker, 9 and 8, at the Country Club of Rochester (N.Y.). Gunderson’s only close call came in the quarterfinals, where she needed 20 holes to outlast Barbara Williams. Gunderson went on to win two more U.S. Women’s Amateurs, in 1966 and 1968, and would win the 1971 and 1976 U.S. Women’s Opens after turning professional.
