Surely the type of flag stick will also make a difference on whether ball bounces out.

some clubs have fibreglass flags other clubs have flags that are wooden top with metal base in cup.

 I recently noticed some different flagsticks on par 3s.  Ruler measurements on them, thick & heavy, possibly steel. The ball could get quite a rebound.

Make sure that it is not attended. If the flag stick is being held when he ball strikes it, it incurs a penalty.

Flagsticks are fibreglass plain, fibreglass pvc coated, or timber wrapped in aluminium, from my experience, that does not count for the thousands of clubs in regional areas that may use whatever they have on hand.... 18mm electrical conduit in one case

I've also seen conduit used but not in my area.

...

At moment I like to putt with flag in for Long putts and out for short ones.


Isn't it more the base is the flag stick? Some have chunky metal attachments to the actual fibreglass or whatever main flagstick. What's the ball hit? Flagstick or base attached?

And.

I started leaving the flagstick in during my practice rounds late last year and continued doing so this year. Haven't had any competition rounds, but the few social rounds I found the group confused.

If it was out, I'd leave it out. But, think I prefer it left in now, even for the closer ones.

Posted 28 February 2019 - 11:05 AM

Playing yesterday one player was putting from more than 3 metres and left the pin in and the ball went over the hole and just hit the pin and did not fall in and finished not far away. It was discussed if the putt would have fell if the pin was out but there was no consensus if the pin prevented the ball from dropping in.
