    Under rule 14,B on the putting surface, is the caddie, or your playing partner allowed down the line of the putt beyond the hole. In other words can they be on the line of the putt with the hole between them and you attempting the putt?

      Thank you for your comment. Yes, they can be in the line of the putt if they are positioned behind the hole (as in the hole between them and the other player as mentioned).

      If the caddy of the golfer stands behind the hole and indicates the through line of the putt or the actual break line of the putt, then I believe there is a penalty for such action.
