If it has little silver bells in it, smells like pepper, and is still warm to the touch, get in cart and put pedal to metal. Now.

Otherwise, it looks like a loose impediment to me, perhaps best removed (carefully) with your sand wedge. Be sure not to kiss your sand wedge for a few more holes though.

I use to play in a course where this was a regular occurrence in one of the greens adjacent to a pond full of ducks. It's a loose impediment so you can use your sand wedge. I don't think it matters if you touch your line if you're in the process of removing it.

Springtime Safety Tips for Golfers:

Q: Spring is cubbing season and bears can be very dangerous if they perceive you as a threat to their cubs. How can you protect yourself on the course?

A: Bears are soothed by musical tinkling sounds and rarely feel threatened when they are hearing these sounds. Always wear little bells that will jingle while you are walking. But if you get between the mother and the cub, this may not work, so carry a can of pepper spray in your hip pocket to fend off an attack. Finally, if you see any fresh bear poop during the round, be sure to call the pro shop so they can warn everyone to be extra wary.

Q: How do I know if the poop is bear poop?

A: Careful examination. Often you will find little silver bells in it and it will smell like pepper.

Looks like relief was taken in your line of play. Good thing the USGA has seen fit to address this with an obscure little known ruling. Rule POO-P states....


P00-P. Relief Taken in Line of Play

(i) If a ball played comes to rest at a point on the green where obvious relief has been taken and said relief has left a loose impediment within the intended line of play....the putt is considered a gimmie!!

you have two choices...either borrow a buddie's club and move it or if he will not go for that, use your own club but then use his towel on his bag to clean your club.

the rules of golf say that if is animal, you get relief but if it is human, you can pick it up and say 'I am not putting up with this *hit'.

of course the only way to know is with a stool sample and that dna test is very expensive.


we were in myrtle beach once at aracadian shores and the course was just killing us....after yet another ball went into the water or rolled off the green, a dog from one of the houses strolled down to the green, made a big deposit and walked back to his house.  My golf partner said "All right dog, that is exactly how I feel about this course".

true, you are allowed to use a club to removed loose impeds as long as you are not pressing down hard. I won a bet on that ruling.

I think you committed a rules violation by marking the line of your putt.
