A player may opt to use a putter (Only) on the fairway when close to the green. The ball may be lifted, cleaned and placed within 6 inches of where it originally lay but NOT nearer the hole and not in a hazard or on a putting green.

A player may move or place their ball once only and after the ball has been moved or placed, it is deemed to be in play. If a ball is moved after being placed or dropped, a one stroke penalty is applied.

A ball landing in semi-rough or rough must be played as it lies.
