Starting January 1st, 2019 the rules of golf are changing.

Now we don’t need to get uptight about this!

these changes are intended to improve the game, simplify some things, and to give choices in how to play from “problem” areas.

If you are an regular golfer,you know that there have been some really strange rulings in the game. That is about to change!!

To help get things going, we will start with some links from the USGA. These are some short, general instruction video’s in understanding what to do in a particular circumstance.

This is will be very helpful for beginners as well.

Pay particular attention on HOW the ball gets dropped, and what is now a RELIEF ZONE. To help you, we have highlighted some of the most common situations in the Summary link at the bottom of the page.
