Blowers/Brushes/Squeegees for Loose Impediments on Putting Green. GoRaC 6.8 and Decision 33/1. Temporary Local Rule. Updated 2014-11-30.
IN DEPTH: From Decision 33/1
: If loose impediments e.g. acorns, pine-needles,  leaves or sand accumulates on a putting green the Committee may do what is necessary to eliminate the condition without suspending play. It might e.g. use blowers, brushes, rakes or squeegees. In such cases, the Committee may, when necessary, enlist the help of players to eliminate the condition. However , a player would be in breach of Rule 13-2 if he were to remove e.g. acorns with a blower on his line of putt or line of play without the permission of the Committee."
