Rules You May Not Know: Lifting the Ball

Did you know? The rules of golf allow you to clean the ball when it is lifted except for the following situations:

  • If the ball interferes with or assists another player through the green.
  • To identify if it is the player’s ball.
  • To determine if the ball is unfit for play.

The other important thing to remember is that once you lift a ball, you must proceed under the applicable rule. You can’t put it back.
