New Rules of Golf for January 2019

The R&A and the USGA have unveiled the new Rules of Golf which will take effect on 1 January 2019. There is a lot of information available on the internet apart from the official sites.

R&A Rules

All the details can be found on the R&A website which also includes links to an App that can be downloaded and is available for android devices, IOS and Apple.

There are two versions of the rules available:

The Rules of Golf (full version) which is intended for those who administer the game and who need to answer the variety of questions that can arise in relation to golf competitions.

The Rules of Golf (Player's Edition) which is intended for you, the golfer. It contains the Rules and situations that occur most commonly on the course and is an abridged version of the full Rules. Although the text is edited, it gives you the same answer that is in the full Rules of Golf and so it is a functioning Rule book.
