I wonder if at the Australian Amateur Championship anyone was happy to putt over the marker if it was on their line?


Bloody comedians everywhere these days.

Damn, I’m loosing control of the quote/multi quote function.
The person who thinks their marker is quicker than the new flag stick rule is the funny man!
I’m sure he has done extensive research in the last 3 weeks to make sure those claims are correct 😂

Yep
Jake loves and uses the puttovr golf ball marker, taken 50 markers with him to hand out.

Just do the maths Lukos.... The time saved removing the flag for a player on one put maybe 30 seconds.
The time saved moving a ball marker for somebody then replacing the ball marker.

Its almost twice the time!
No Joke 
And yes I get it some will move the marker anyway, but a lot will simply puttovr the top.

I was the first in our club to use the puttovr,I then purchased 3 more for my playing group.I am now seeing the puttovr used by other players, golfers do putt over the top and s a result it saves a lot of time. I like the way it stays with the putter, if you have your putter then you have your puttovr marker.
It's very clever

You may see my puttovr marker on a green near you soon.



 


Hm, I’m not inclined to believe that.
And maybe stay in your lane- the golf equipment area.

How long would it take to remove the flag?
How long dose it take to line the putter up to a tree move the marker. Player has the putt, line up the putter to the tree again move the marker back. 
Do the maths Lukos

Removing the flag used to take ages. You could be waiting for a player to rake a bunker or walk their buggy to the back of the green before you could remove the flag for your putt. Or you pull it out and then put it back in so they can have their shot. It was a stuff around. This was multiple times a round. I moved my marker once in the last half a dozen rounds I've played and got others to move theirs maybe twice more. Not much of an inconvenience.

That looks like something inky would put up his arse.

With the choice in colours you would think he would use more than one?

Not baging  the flag stick rule at all, love the new rule 
Just saying people are putting over the top and it saves a heap of time.

You're a **** salesman. ,
