Proposed Changes to the Rules of Golf in 2019


As some of you may be aware, the R&A and USGA are tinkering with the Rules of Golf, and have come up with some proposed changes.

These changes relate to many things like speeding up the pace of play by only allowing three minutes instead of five, to look for a lost ball.
Water Hazards will be replaced by a new definition of "Penalty Areas". Dropping a ball will be allowed from any height, whether that be 1cm or 1m.

They are also reducing the number of rules (might be a good thing!!).

For a more complete rundown, download the information from here. It makes interesting reading.
