Material Applied to Clubhead to Reduce Glare or For Protection

May a player put an adhesive bandage or tape on the clubhead to reduce glare or for protection (e.g., while the player has the club on loan)?

An adhesive bandage or tape added to the clubhead is considered an external attachment, rendering the club non-conforming in breach of Rule 4-1a (see Appendix II, Rule 1a but see also Decision 4-1/4). Additionally, adding such an attachment during the round would change the club's playing characteristics in breach of Rule 4-2.
