Do I have to putt over dead grass?

Golf Digest Middle East - - The Golf Life Rules -

On the green? Maybe. Check with the course to see if you get free re­lief from the burnt-out area. If so, lift the ball and place it at the near­est point that pro­vides com­plete re­lief—or the max­i­mum avail­able re­lief—so the grass is no longer on your line. That point can­not be in a haz­ard or closer to the hole and might be off the green. Oth­er­wise, play it as it lies.
