You can see the video explanation at this website:
ACCIDENTAL MOVEMENT OF BALL ON PUTTING
"Rules 18-2, 18-3 and 20-1 are modified as follows:
When a player's ball lies on the putting green, there is no penalty
if the ball or ball-marker is accidentally moved by the player,
his partner, his opponent, or any of their caddies or equipment.
The moved ball or ball-marker must be replaced as provided in
Rules 18-2, 18-3 and 20-1.
This Local Rule applies only when the player's ball or ball-marker
lies on the putting green and any movement is accidental.
Note: If it is determined that a player's ball on the putting
green was moved as a result of wind, water or some other natural
cause such as the effects of gravity, the ball must be played
as it lies from its new location. A ball-marker moved in such
circumstances is replaced."

----- " Relaxed putting green rules:
There will be no penalty if a ball played from the putting green
hits an unattended flagstick in the hole; players may putt without
having the flagstick attended or removed. Players may repair spike
marks and other damage made by shoes, animal damage and other
damage on the putting green and there is no penalty for merely
touching the line of putt.
----- " Relaxed bunker rules:
There will be no penalty for moving loose impediments in a bunker
or for generally touching the sand with a hand or club. A limited
set of restrictions (such as not grounding the club right next
to the ball) is kept to preserve the challenge of playing from
the sand; however, an extra relief option is added for an unplayable
ball in a bunker, allowing the ball to be played from outside
the bunker with a two-stroke penalty. This is if no casual
water in the bunker. ....
If water in the bunker, it is best described in this video ....
--added 1/31/2018 USGA Rule 25-1(b). If casual water in
the bunker one-stroke penalty to take ball out of bunker. No penalty
to move to dry spot in bunker.
---- " Simplified way of taking
relief: A new procedure for taking relief by dropping
a ball in and playing it from a specific relief area; relaxed
procedures for dropping a ball, allowing the ball to be dropped
from just above the ground or any growing thing or other object
on the ground. Scroll down on this webpage and watch the video
