On PGA.com’s Weekly Golf Buzz, a viewer sent in this photo to the show’s facebook page and asked, “does this count for an eagle?”
According to the USGA rule 17-4:
When a player’s ball rests against the flagstick in the hole and the ball is not holed, the player or another person authorized by him may move or remove the flagstick, and if the ball falls into the hole, the player is deemed to have holed out with his last stroke; otherwise, the ball, if moved, must be placed on the lip of the hole, without penalty.
FYI… that’s a gimme if you’re playing with me 🙂
Happy Thursday everyone!
