We're here to assist
Flag Assist utilizes a temporary modification to standard pins that allows players to lift the entire pin for ball removal.
Recently in daily play, the USGA has authorized golfers to putt from the green with the flagstick in place instead of requiring its removal. This has shifted the way amateur and professional golfers are playing - they can now use the pin as an element of play.
However, the repeated removal of the ball from a cup with the pin in place can deform the surrounding turf. It can cause the cup to shift, as well as dome the earth surrounding the cup.
Flag Assist allows players to lift the ball clear simply by lifting the entire pin. This means they won't need to use external tools that could damage the green.

Flag Assist can increase player efficiency and speed of play for rounds of golf.
Without the constant, inefficient removal and replacement for pins during each play, golfers can speed up their playing time. Players themselves no longer need to bend over to retrieve the ball.
"Our members have been really excited about Flag Assist’s receiver cups. The cup itself and the surrounding turf around the hole (on the putting green) hold up for daily play much better vs when we didn’t have the cups.
Also, the majority of the members think it’s very convenient to not have to bend over to retrieve the ball each time the ball is holed."
