Ask Linda #947-Leave ball in hole

Linda, am I penalized if I leave my ball in the hole after sinking my putt and other players hole out on top of it?    
Lou from Ontario

Dear Lou,

No penalty, Lou, but you must remove it if you are requested to do so. It’s acceptable to leave your ball in the hole in a casual round to help speed up pace of play, but it would be improper and discourteous in a competition.
