Q. The player’s ball has gone down into the cup, but has failed to stay at rest in the hole. Does this count as holed?
A. No, ALL of the ball must come to rest below the surface of the ground, inside the hole, for it to be considered holed.
Exception 1: part of it is below the surface of the ground and at rest against the flagstick that has been left in the hole = holed.
Exception 2: ALL of the ball is below the surface of the ground, but only part of the ball is inside the hole, as it is embedded in the side of the hole = holed.
Definition of ‘holed’ & Rule 13.2b.
