Understanding the Proposed Changes to the Rules of Golf

The game of golf has changed wordlwide and the USGA and R&A have proposed revisions to the rules of the game. They've asked golfers from 102 countries to offer their feedback as well as taken into account reviews from golfers who have played under the new ruleset. This would be the largest overhaul in over 3 decades. The rulebook, which would be launched in 2019, has been slimmed down from 34 to 24 core rules and aims to make the game easier to comprehend, less prone to controversy, and to speed up the pace of play.
