Top 8 New Rules of Golf Explained

By: Golfshake Editor | Tue 15 Jan 2019 | Comments ()


Much publicised, debated and scrutinised, the Rules of Golf were updated for 2019. Modernising the game was the intention of the R&A and USGA, simplifying and speeding things up was the aim, with golfers now adopting these key changes for the first time when playing on the golf course. 

However, for many, the resumption of golf - particularly competitive rounds - won't come until spring, so you may not yet be fully aware of the new rules, especially the most important ones to remember. We have several features on website to assist, but even better is this video from Jonathan Pearson, the Head Professional of the Yorkshire Golf Academy based at Moor Allerton Golf Club

Jonathan takes us through eight key rules on the golf course, outlining the various scenarios and explaining what comes next, which should help you to seamlessly introduce the new laws of golf into your game.
