Just a reminder that preferred lies remain in operation until the end of April.
Preferred Lies are for closely mown areas (fairways and green fringes only).
When a player’s ball lies in a part of the general area cut to fairway height or less, the player may prefer the lie within 6 inches. Not nearer the hole. You may clean the ball.
In proceeding under this Local Rule, the player must choose a spot to place the ball and use the procedures for replacing a ball under Rules 14.2b(2) and 14.2e.
