RULES OF GOLF

As independent bodies The R&A and the United States Golf Association have worked closely together since 1952 to produce a uniform code of rules so that wherever the game is played the same laws apply. Every four years the two governing bodies agree any necessary amendments or clarifications and the main thrust of their work is in reviewing, revising and clarifying the rules so that they can be more easily understood and applied. Because of the complex nature of the game, one small change in the rules is rather like altering the shape of one piece of a jig-saw puzzle, affecting all the pieces that touch it. Proposed changes are discussed in detail with golf authorities in all parts of the world and when The R&A and USGA make their final decisions there has to be complete agreement on both sides. The abiding principle is always “are they for the good of the game?”
