Knowing the Revised Rules

November 7th, 2018

There is no shortage of information about the Rules of Golf which come into force on 1st January 2019. The Official Guide was published a few days ago and joins publications such as Expert Golf’s quick reference guides – www.expertgolf.com – and video – https://youtu.be/chPOtfLUHC0 – which summarises 20 of the most important changes.

And then. of course, you have the official websites from The R&A and USGA and the publications available in more than 30 different languages.

Ignorance will be no excuse!
