  1. It's been interesting to see the various schemes golf courses have used to satisfy self directed or mandated rules in response to the pandemic. Some as simple as the foam tube in the cup, to those that lift the ball out, to inverted cups, to no cup at all. A quick search yields dozens of companies (or one man garage industries) offering a plethora of variations. A number of patent applications and lots of articles about these and those working on the latest "necessity is the mother of invention" gizmo. I personally like the foam tube the best as it adds no restriction on open area and, if made at the right height, offers easy ball removal. But, it's downside is that folks tend to bugger up the hole edges using the end of their putters to extract the ball. So, more recently, I'm favoring one that Cottonwood Hills has which is similar to the last photo but has a tapered cone bottom such that when you lift/slide it up with your putter, the ball drops clear of the hole. These do reduce the open area a little and may keep a small percentage of putts from dropping, but local rules are often addressing that. Which contraptions have you seen/used and which do you like the best? If you have seen any other novel designs, please share them.
