Can you repair a pitch mark on your line
You can repair pitch marks anywhere on the green including on your line of putt.
What are spike marks
In stagecraft, a spike is a marking, usually made with a piece of tape (although some theatres use paint pens), put on or around the stage. Several companies make rolls of very thin gaffer’s or paper tape marketed as “spike tape” specifically for placing spikes.
Can you tap down spike marks on the green
The Old Rule: A player may only repair ball-marks or old hole plugs on the putting green. The New Rule: Golfers are now allowed to repair almost any damage on the green, such as spike marks, ball-marks, indentations from a club or flagstick, and animal damage.
Can you repair the hole in golf
If the hole is damaged materially, a member of the Committee should be requested to repair the damage. In this case, you may only repair the hole if a Committee member is not readily available. Repairing the hole when not permitted will result in a breach of Rule 16-1a for touching the line of putt.

Can you fix ball marks off Green
You are allowed you to repair damage on the putting green without penalty by taking reasonable actions to restore the putting green as nearly as possible to its original condition. However, on Occasion 2 above your pitch mark was not on the green.
Can you kneel on a putting green
On the other hand, if the greens are firm and the kneeling does not damage the green, there is no rule that prohibits a player from kneeling.
What is the penalty for hitting the flagstick while putting
Four, it is also a penalty to hit the flagstick when it is unattended in the hole, but in this case only when your stroke is played from the putting green. In all four cases the penalty is loss of hole in match play and two strokes in stroke play.
Can you brush sand off the green
Golf rules question. This does not apply anywhere else on the golf course, including the fringe of the green. If there is any loose soil or sand there, don’t touch or remove it or you will incur a two-stroke penalty. But if we’re talking about sand on the putting green, you’re clear to clear.
Can you stand behind a golfer when he is putting
Players should not stand close to or directly behind the ball, or directly behind the hole, when a player is about to play. Players should not stand on another player’s line of putt or, when they are making a stroke, cast a shadow over their line of putt.
