The USGA and The R&A have unveiled the new Rules of Golf which were implemented January 1, 2019.
The USGA and The R&A finalized golf’s new Rules after an extensive review that included a request for feedback from the global golf community on the proposed changes. Golfers can now access the official 2019 Rules of Golf HERE.
The process to modernize the Rules began in 2012 and was initiated to ensure that the Rules are easier to understand and apply for all golfers and to make the game more attractive and accessible for newcomers.
