One ball is putted into hole, second player putts his in also before first ball is removed therefore two balls are in the hole and neither is above lip. Is there a penalty to second player for putting out before first ball is removed? Cheers, i couldnt find this in the rules and then conflicting advice re google so hoped you could clear it up.

I would think that if you can't find it in the rules, it's a fair indication that no rules have been contravened. By definition, both balls have been holed. If Player A steps up on a par 3 and hits a hole in one, and then Player B does the same, I can't imagine Player B being hit with a two stroke penalty can you?

No problem. No penalty. The holes are deep enough for a heap of balls all to be below the surface.

19-5a is the Rule, only penalising if the hit ball is in play, which a holed ball is not. Decision 19-5/1 is a similar situation.

Sorry Maggie, I hope you don't think I was being condescending. That certainly wasn't my intent, although upon re-reading my post I can see that it might have come across that way.

Not a Rules matter but connected to this ....has anyone seen or heard of a case where the second ball bounces off the first ball and comes to rest on the green?

Seen plenty of balls come back out of holes but never one that bounced off a ball already in cup. Saw one bounce of a badly set cup back at the player & hit him. That was a little " Rude"

Ball hitting the player is really tough! Rubbing salt into the wound, eh? Hole liners not fitted deep enough in the hole is too common. Off the top I can't recall anything but a recommendation on this somewhere. Saw and got a bad result from a shocker at Muriwai North Island NZ some years ago. The liner seemed like a cut down jam tin. It was set about 10 mm below the surface. The course was good but condition at the time poor.

Bit difficult to justify badly set cups if a Cup setter is used though. Then it comes down purely to laziness. Had one on the practice green on the weekend where the old hole plug was 5 mm lower than surrounding surface. That tells me that the hole it came out of was not cut deep enough. But then I have seen balls strike the flagstick halfway up & fall in the hole. What goes around comes around I guess!

Love playing the game and interested in the Rules

Languid, The definition of "hole" gives the required depth for a hole liner. 1 inch (25.4mm) unless soil nature precludes this. Trysil

Thanks for that, Trysil. I was wondering about hole liners. Were they used back in the very early days?

Similar question....a player is not in comp and/or has had an out but their ball is on the green and another comp players ball hits it. Is there a penalty for comp player whose ball struck the other or is the other ball considered "dead" in terms of the competition scoring and penalties incurred?

Can of worms comes into play if there isn't a penalty.
