November 2022 - Wind Direction

November 2022

Recently a player was using his vap device on the golf course and was blowing the smoke out to see what way the wind was blowing. 

Unfortunately rule 4.3 forbids any artificial device being used to specifically show wind direction and this would incur the general penalty: loss of hole in match play and two strokes in stroke play.

The rule is:  4.3 (2) Information on Wind and Other Weather Conditions.

Note: throwing up a few blades of grass is allowable as it is natural, not artificial.
