Why Do They Spray Bowls in Lawn Bowling?

Answer

The umpire used to mark a bowl that was touching the jack with chalk - the spray is a modern version. If the touching bowl is cannoned out, then it can still be identified if it lands in the ditch. Normally a bowl landing in the ditch is dead - a toucher is still alive.
