Let the Rules Help Your Game!

Here is the Rule of the Month

Use it to your advantage in your next round!

The “Rules of Golf” are comprised of 34 rules and three appendixes.  The rules cover the player, etiquette, the game, equipment, the course and types of formats used in competitions and how one should proceed in stroke and match play competitions.  The rules are there to protect the field and to help you in certain situations, not always to penalize you.  The rules book is about one hundred fifty pages long plus a glossary of terms and indexes.  There is another book “The Decisions on the Rules of Golf”,  which is about 3 times as big, covers exact situations and the procedures.  The rules of golf book can be purchased directly from the USGA website or can be found in most pro shops and sporting stores.

Get one for you bag and take the time to look over it.  You will find somethings in the book that you did not know and can help you in playing better golf or winning matches.

I am going to showcase a rule a month, rules that will pertain to day to day golf as well as tournament golf on this page.  If you see something on television or encounter a situation in you round, let us know and we will discuss it here.

Golf is fun and the rules make it fair for all.

Good Golfing.
