Restrictions on Items Used as Ball-Markers

Q. What am I allowed to use to mark the spot of my ball?

A. The spot of your ball must be marked with a ball-marker or with your club. A ball-marker is an artificial object such as a tee, coin, or other object made to be a ball-marker, or another small piece of equipment (see Definition of Ball-Marker and Mark).
