according to United States Golf AssociationWhen your ball is in the golf zone and you want to clean your golf ball, arrange your next golf pitch, or just get the ball out of the way of the other players in your group, you should mark your ball, preferably with something about the size of a coin. There is always a large selection of fun and interesting ball markers available in your club’s pro shop.
In this video, I walk you through some of the do’s and don’ts when tagging a ball.
Mark your golf ball
To mark your ball on the green, simply place the mark behind the golf ball in line with the hole. I often see new players moving the ball out of the way first thinking they have to put the market exactly where the ball is. In fact, according to golf rulesIt is not legal to move your ball before it has been marked.
Another good reason to mark your ball is the order of the next strokes. Many golf balls and putters have lines printed by the manufacturer, so you can align the direction of throwing the ball when replacing the ball after marking it. You are also allowed to draw a line on the ball with a sharpie for this.
So, remember… mark behind the ball before you catch it, then line up the ball in the direction of your shot before it catches your mark.
always follow golf rules To make sure you enjoy the game and live a positive and positive life of golf!
