Golf Rules & Regulations

The USGA and R&A unveiled proposed rules as part of a joint initiative to modernize the rules and make them easier to understand and apply. Starting March 1, 2017 there is a six-month feedback and evaluation period during which all golfers worldwide can learn about the proposed changes, and provide input to refine them before they are finalized in 2018 and take effect Jan. 1, 2019.
