Ask Linda 1956-Move from fringe to green for relief

When a player is taking relief from an immovable obstruction can he go from fringe to putting green?
Lou from California

Dear Lou, 


The fringe (or apron) is in the general area. Rule 16.1b will tell you that when you seek relief from an immovable obstruction (or any abnormal course condition) when your ball lies in the general area, the relief area where you drop a ball must be in the general area. The putting green is not in the general area; you may not drop on the putting green in this situation.
