    Guy at the liquor store says he putts pool que style. I told him it's the against the rules and he said show me and bet me $5. I know it's not legal but in what rule is it banned? I understand the stance rule on putting between your legs. But I guess if you wanted you could be to the side of the line like you do if you putt side saddle. You'd have to be very flexable but I guess you could do it. I know there is a rule, would someone tell me what it is so I can take his $5. Thanks Ken

    Striking Ball with Billiard-Type Motion

    Q.A player holed a short putt by squatting behind the ball (but not on an extension of the line of putt behind the ball) and striking the ball with the bottom of the clubhead, using a motion similar to that used in playing a shot in billiards or shuffleboard. Was the player in breach of Rule 14-1?

    A.Yes. Such a manner of moving the ball constitutes a push in golf.


    14-1/3

    Putting with Wrong End of Putter

    Q.A player misses a short putt and hastily holes the ball with the wrong (handle) end of his putter. What is the ruling?

    A.The player incurs a penalty of loss of hole in match play or two strokes in stroke play for a breach of Rule 14-1 which requires that the ball be struck at with the head of the club. In stroke play, the stroke with the wrong end of the putter counts, and, since the ball was holed, the player had completed play of the hole.

    Hey, nothin' wrong with the sweet smell of diesel exhaust. Love it, vs that rotten egged odor from catalytic converters on our gasoline powered jalopies. And the sound... Can't get over how quiet the engines are in today's equipment. Part of my hearing loss is old age. The other part is from sitting in the cab of too many excavators and loaders powered by "screamin' jimmys". Of course, some of the Cummins equipped Rams can wake the dead!!!!

    There isn't really a need to rent flicks anymore. The internet has opened up a wide array of "free" stuff!
