From Rule 15:   "Without penalty, a player may remove a loose impediment anywhere on or off the course, and may do so in any way (such as by using a hand or foot or a club or other equipment)."   ht

> Old rules permitted a brush to be used to 'sweep' the green prior to putting. No direct track to the hole was permitted.

> In play yesterday i used my hand, palm side, to brush away a mound of sand on the green left by the workers.

> Someone said 'only back of hand permitted'.

> In new rules, i cannot find any comment on use of a brush. Hand, apparently either side, is OK to move sand, etc, from the green. No testing of surface permitted.

> So, is using a small broom on the green still OK?

 

LOL, show him the back of your hand.

Why else would he be brushing his hand across the green?

Could be brushing away anything, loose soil, sand, loose grass, traces of cigarette ash from those thoughtful types who smoke while putting - all permitted actions - or up to mischief. Just seeing the action does not tell an observer what is going on in the player's head.
