Recently i was playing in a strokeplay comp. On one hole i was a couple of inches off the green so i decided to putt. I asked that the pin not be taken out, however as my putt was going into the hole, the guy attending panicked and pulled the pin out as the ball dropped. The ball popped out and as we all agreed that the ball was in the hole, so i claimed the putt. Have i breached any rule as the ball had technically not come to rest in the hole?
This is more out of interest as i didn't come close to winning anyway.
