Can you use a Mulligan from the fairway?
Some golfers limit the use of mulligans to the first tee only, or to the first and 10th tees only. Some golfers use one mulligan per nine holes, but anywhere on each nine. It’s most common for mulligans to be used only off the tee, i.e., you can only use a mulligan to replay a drive. However, some groups allow mulligans from the fairway, too.
How many mulligans can you get on the putting green?
It is rarer still – rarely seen, in fact – for mulligans to be used on the putting green. And some groups allow mulligans from just about anywhere on the golf course, but set a limit – say, three mulligans per round, or nine, or 18. Clearly, there are many different ways that golfers use mulligans.
Are Mulligans legal in golf?
Mulligans are not allowed under the rules. But just because mulligans aren’t "legal" doesn’t mean their use isn’t common and popular among recreational golfers. Many amateurs and recreational golfers – players just out to have a fun round with buddies, as opposed to serious golfers looking for competition – are lax in observing the rules anyway.
What is the reverse of a Mulligan in golf?
The reverse of a mulligan is a “ gilligan ” whereby your opponent can request you to replay a successful stroke. Mulligans can only be played on tee shots and sometimes the members of a group can agree to limit it to the first tee shot of the round.
