ACCIDENTAL MOVEMENT OF A BALL ON A PUTTING GREEN

The moved ball or ball marker must be replaced as provided in Rules 18-2 and 20-1. This Local Rule applies only when the player’s ball or ball marker lies on the putting green and any movement is accidental.

A ball marker moved in such circumstances is replaced.
