    Explanation
    According to the given statement, it is permitted to eliminate an irregularity of the surface on the teeing ground.

    There is no requirement for a player to put an identification mark on his ball.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Putting an identification mark on a golf ball is not a requirement according to the rules of the game. While many players choose to mark their balls for easy identification, it is not mandatory. Some players may prefer to use unmarked balls or rely on other methods, such as remembering the brand or number of the ball, to identify their own. Therefore, the statement "There is no requirement for a player to put an identification mark on his ball" is true.

Attending the flagstick can also prevent it from moving or falling over, which could affect the outcome of the shot. Therefore, the statement is true.
