Golf Questions

Please excuse my absence, I am back and ready to write about golf! I am deciding to take a different approach to writing lessons and instructions since my previous attempts were weak at best. Instead, I am going to receive your golf related questions and answer them to the best of my abilities.

The Golf Questions Experiment: I will gather your questions for one week. I will pick a question(s) that are asked the most or if that doesn't work, I will pick the golf question I have the most knowledge about. I know I have only a handful of viewers coming to my site but you don't have to be shy. I am friendly and always want to talk golf.

If the Golf Questions Experiment is a failure, I will go back to writing my lessons as usual. Golfing season is upon us! I have a few rounds under my belt and my scores are in the mid 70's....right where I need to keep them.

  1. Hello,
    In the game of golf are you allowed to stand behing a player and watch the line of their putt? Is this a penalty or just golf etiquette? Can't find anywhere!! Help Faldo!!

  2. Hi,
    Thanks for asking a question! From my knowlegdge, the answer is yes and no. It is NOT allowed during official/tournament play and, if committed, is a 2 stroke penalty. Standing behind a player in regular/casual/fun play IS technically allowed. However, when playing for fun, it is proper etiquette to avoid the player's line of sight and line of putt (usually same thing) which can be distracting. Hope this helped!


Thanks for Visiting!
