Flagstick FAQ

Q – The flagstick is lying at an angle in the hole and despite trying to centre it several times 
with my putter, it won’t stay in place for very long because of the wind. Normally I would 
just take the flag out, but my club have ruled that the flagstick must not be touched or 
removed from the hole. Can I have my fellow competitor continue to centre the flag while I 
A – Yes. The centring of the flagstick may be allowed while another player putts. In this circumstance, the fellow 
competitor is not attending the flagstick, just centring it. The person holding the flagstick with the putter must keep 
it in the centred position until ball comes to rest or until it is clear it is not going to hit the flagstick in any way.
There is no penalty if the person accidentally lets go of the flagstick in this situation. However, if the player tries to 
gain an advantage by directing the person to let go of the flagstick in another position, the player gets the General 
Penalty under Rule 13.2a. If an opponent/fellow competitor intentionally moves the flagstick to a position to affect 
where the player’s ball might go or come to rest, they get the General Penalty under Rule 8.3b.
