16-1a/3 Removing Dew or Frost from Line of Putt
May a player brush dew or frost from his line of putt?
No. Rule 16-1a prohibits touching the line of putt except in removal of loose impediments, repair of ball marks, etc. Dew or frost is not a loose impediment -- see Definition of "Loose Impediments." Accordingly, such action would be a breach of Rule 16-1a. .

Metro Golf Dome
The Durham Junior Golf Tour is excited to announce a new strategic partnership with the Metro Golf Dome as it becomes the official winter training facility of the Team DJGT program. The Metro Golf Dome is a climate controlled 53,000 square foot facility featuring 46 driving stations with both suspended and floor targets; a 3,000 square foot area dedicated to putting and chipping plus a sand trap practice area.
Team DJGT Head Coach, Jon Roy has utilized the Metro Dome as a home for his coaching programs over the past decade as it offers an effective and friendly environment for players to further enhance their skills. Over the winter months, developing athletes requires a high number of quality ball contacts where they can train swing techniques. This work on technique over the winter (pre-competition) months is what conditions the movement patterns that will be drawn on in the competitive season. The dome offers a strong environment for the training of swing technique – there are fresh balls and mats, lots of space to watch ball flight, and effective lighting for video work. There are also spaces reserved for training short game skills. The coaches of Golf Performance Coaches feel the dome is great for exploring and developing golf skills and they like to spend a significant amount of time there over the winter months.
We wish to thank Jim Tsakalos of the Metro Golf Dome for his support of the Durham Junior Golf Tour and our development programs.
A benefit to all Durham Junior Golf Tour members includes the opportunity to purchase a Junior Full Membership at the discounted price of $449.99 (regular $499.99). A Junior Full Membership is the ideal way to practice during the off season. Membership includes 1 hour range time per day, valid anytime, 7 days per week for the entire winter season (October 15th, 2014 through April 30th, 2015). Interested parties should contact Jane Iceton at firstname.lastname@example.org or 905-655-8234.
