Why are the players not touching flagsticks at Seminole Golf Club for the TaylorMade Driving Relief match?

If you’re watching the TaylorMade Driving Relief event at Seminole Golf Club, you may have noticed that none of the four players — Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson, Rickie Fowler and Matthew Wolff — are touching the flagstick on the golf course.

Instead, only rules officials walking with the match are handling the flagsticks. Why aren’t the players touching flagsticks?

The players aren’t touching flagsticks because of the conditions set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and the state of Florida, which require operating golf courses to respect social distancing and other guidelines to prevent possible viral spread. Flagsticks are considered a shared surface, but unlike other shared surfaces on the golf course, they’re necessary for golfers to navigate a course and know where the hole location is on each hole. That’s why the rules officials are handling the flagsticks, to limit who touches them and keep them disinfected.
