NO flags, no worries.
Jarrod Fary's second Warrnambool Golf Club Championship triumph arrived in unique circumstances.
Fary, who finished with a total score of 300 across four rounds, found his final 36 holes without flagsticks as organisers enforced precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
"I'm pretty happy with it. It's fairly trying conditions when you have no flags, that makes it hard," he said.
"There's a lot of guesswork and that sort of stuff but everyone is in the same boat.
"It is what it is. We're lucky to be out here."
Fary said the lack of a "reference point" on greens posed difficulties.

"There's nothing to aim at," he said.
"Even your short shots. You know (the hole) is there but it's just outside your vision.
"When the flag isn't there, you get set over the ball, look up, and then you've lost your spot."
The 2017 champion managed to avoid "a lot of trouble" en route to victory.
Despite a hiccup on the fifth hole on the fourth round, Fary steered clear of disaster.
"I didn't get in to a lot of trouble. I got a bit lucky too," he said.
"I could've had anything up the fifth. I had to pick my ball out of the trees and go back and play it from where I originally played it from.
"It went back in the trees but kicked out on the fairway. That could've been a disaster but I got very lucky there."
Fary held off Simon Goggin (303) and Paul Walker (307) to secure the victory.
He praised Goggin - who managed 71 on Saturday - for his efforts.
Fary also claimed the Ron Hollingsworth memorial trophy. John Wormald was the 60 and over champion, while Martin Kennedy was the 50-59 senior champion.
Wes Isles was crowned B grade champion, composing a score of 330, while Zac Westwick finished runner up just three shots behind.
C grade honours went to Tim Kelson, who posted 358, with Steve Waterhouse (360) just behind.
Peter Pearson (396) lifted the D grade championship, while Wil Sapstead (398) was just behind as runner-up.
Josh Brown's (246) efforts were enough to be crowned junior champion. He fended off youngster Elijah McLeod (266) in the under 21 class.
Juniors play just three rounds compared to the senior grades' four.
