NEW RULES OF GOLF FOR 2012 - 2015 LAUNCHED

 

The R & A and the USGA have announced the publication of the New Rules of Golf for 2012 - 2015.

Changes in the Rules - which for the first time have been designed, published and presented jointly by golf's governing bodies - include exonerating a player from penalty if it is known their ball was moved by the wind after address.

Following an exhaustive, four year review of golf's 34 playing Rules, nine principal Rules have been amended to inprove clarity and ensure penalties are proportionate.
