Ask for a Ruling with Cory Armstrong (April 2, 2010)

Q

--- Jerry, Myrtle Beach

A

It reads, "When a player elects or is required to make his next stroke from where a previous stroke was made, he must proceed as follows:(a) On the Teeing Ground: The ball to be played must be played from within the teeing ground. It may be played from anywhere within the teeing ground and may be teed.(b) Through the Green: The ball to be played must be dropped and when dropped must first strike a part of the course through the green. (c) In a Hazard: The ball to be played must be dropped and when dropped must first strike a part of the course in the hazard. (d) On the Putting Green: The ball to be played must be placed on the putting green."

For your situation, option 'd' gives us the answer. The ball should have been placed.

Sorry to hear of your putting mishap. I hope you made the next one for an interesting two-putt.
