Hi,

This an exceptional rule like winter rule, you can only pick up and clean when on fairway... this is only declare by committee when the ground becomes soggy after rain... even Singapore Open also adopts this rule when heavy rain...

I think it is called "Preferred lies" here...

So can only be applied after heavy rain?

Some courses in JB perpetually soggy. Can apply?

Actually for social game, its up to players to decide before start, if bor then follow club ruling. Even if let one clean ball, he/she may not even hit it correctly so what the hack Razz

Aiyo, give winter rule dose not mean one sure can make that shot, social game should be friendlier, state before game and enjoy throughout, if one start cleaning without prior declaration, the rest can just copy if needed. In any case, only ball on fairway can be cleaned hor Wink

Bro, cleaning embedded ball in fairway is different from 'winter rule' or 'preferred lie' ... Very Happy
