Using a ball marker on the green

Removing a golf ball from the field can be due to many reasons, a courtesy towards other players that are also putting on the green, the need to clean the ball or to a replacement due to severe damage.

A ball marker can represent anything from a small plastic object to your favorite coin, this can be placed directly behind the golf ball before the ball is removed, using a proper ball marker is recommended as it is rarely seen that a PGA golfer would use anything other than a plastic ball marker or small coin to mark the golf ball’s location.

According to an article published by the FSGA, there are many recommended ball markers that can be used so that you can easily identify which one is yours.
