Where to Place your Bag

Posted April 28, 2015 in beginner intermediate rules

When placing your golf bag on the ground, it must remain outside the circumference of the green. You can position it on the fringe like Paul Lawrie does in the picture, but if the wind pushes the bag over and it falls onto the green, a stroke will be added to your score. Thus, keep it far enough away from the green to avoid this penalty.
