Rules Update - The Must Know Rules of Golf Changes for 2019

Don't get caught out by the 2019 rule changes - we've put together a digest of the best articles from the world of golf to help you get to grips with the new rules.

The R&A have put together this short article and video on the '20 Must Know Rules of Golf Changes for 2019'. Click here to view the article.

Golf Monthly have put together an 'All you Need to Know' Guide. See more here.

And here's a link to an article from Golf Digest titled 'Nine changes in the new Rules of Golf you absolutely need to know for 2019'

Our personal top three 'Must Knows' are:

1. You can now only search for a lost ball for three minutes - rather than the previous five minutes

2. You can now tap down spike marks that are on your line - in fact you can also touch the line of your putt with your hand or club so long as you’re not improving it

3. Penalty drops now take place from knee height - instead of the previous shoulder height

Read up, and make sure you know the rules.
