After much debate over the last few years, the governing bodies sat down and made some drastic changes to the rules of golf.
But which ones were adopted by the R&A and which were made into ‘Local Rules’?
In addition, it is your job to know these rules and ignorance is not a defence!
Here’s a rough guide to the golf rules in 2019…
N.B. The R&A concluded you CANNOT drop for ‘3’ when you hit your ball Out of Bounds (from the Tee Box) unless a ‘local rule’ has been set at the Golf club at which you are playing. TSG has decided to accept this rule on social games BUT not at TSG Major events!
