Thieftaker I think you have misconstrued the meaning of the first statement. The words 'closely mown' are restrictive. the words 'through the green' simply mean any CMA on the whole course. The words in brackets allow the committee to limit the relief to a particular fairway or other area(s) less than the whole course. The 'or' relates only the the 'TGT' not the CMA, which is why the definition of CMA is included. CMA is only defined in the LR and 25-2 to reinforce that the LR only applies where 25-2 applies
â€œA ball lying on a closely-mown area through the green (or specify a more restricted area, e.g. at the 6th hole) ......
Note: â€œClosely-mown areaâ€ means any area of the course, including paths through the rough, cut to fairway height or less.

Brian, leaving aside the Leith-style discussion of the Rules mavins, I'd say you need to look at the wording of the Local Rule. If all it says is something like "players may take preferred lies through the green; players may place their ball within 30cm" then it is guilty of allowing nearly everything by omission. If you find yourself 25cm into the rough and can place the ball 5cm on the fairway, then that's your good fortune, AFAICS. If the local rule was worded to only allow preferred lies on "closely mown surfaces", then you couldn't even take a preferred lie if your ball was in the rough.
Where a course has a Local Rule allowing â€œpreferred liesâ€ of say 30cms through the green, is it permissible to move the ball from the rough on to the fairway if this is within 30cms?
