Step 1: Find your ball marker

Before you can place a ball marker on the green, you must have one to use. Ball markers can be purchased at golf stores or online and come in a variety of sizes and materials. Choose a ball marker that you feel comfortable with and that fits your personal style.

Step 2: Choose a location for your ball marker

When you reach the green, it's time to place your ball marker. This is done to mark where your ball is on the green, so you can lift the ball without moving it from its position. Find a spot behind your ball, max 1 inch.

If your fellow player feels that a ball marker is in the way of his putt, he can request that the marker be moved. If so, place it one or more full club lengths to the side.

Step 3: Place your ball marker

Once you have chosen the location for your ball marker, pick up your ball marker and place it on the ground so that it completely covers the ball. Be careful not to accidentally touch the ball when placing your ball marker. You can then lift the ball and clean it if necessary.

Using a ball marker is an important part of the game of golf and it is important to do it correctly. By following these simple steps, you can avoid causing any problems for yourself or other players on the green. Good luck on the golf course!
