As of 2019, new golf rules apply worldwide. It is the most major revision of the rules for more than 30 years. This easy-to-understand video gives you a clear overview of the changes so that you can benefit from all the simplifications and new relief procedures.

Yves C. Ton-That, referee and author of the bestseller “Golf Rules Quick Reference” which has sold more than 1.5 million copies, guides you through all the changes. The rules expert's explanations are based on the “New Rules of Golf for 2019” as published by the USGA and R&A in March 2018.
This discussion is set to be extendable. After it expires, the content will remain, but all guests will be removed. After that if any guests decide to join it, more days will be added to the discussion

I have 'double hit' the ball so many times my guys just say 'add one' now...I like that rule change.

If a ball is dropped from standing position and then played without re-dropping from knee height - what is the penalty?

I wish there were a rule against music on the course. Lib publications such as Golf Digest actually encourage it. Music, along with loud talking, has no place on the course. Music is highly personal. your music is not mine, nor is mine-opera and classical-yours. Save it for your space; not public space. We are surrounded by gorgeous Nature out there. What more could anyone want?

If you stink at this game quit playing from the tips. You're really not that good and you're slowing everything up.

That's my home course Arabella golf in Spain! Awesome video and thanks for the good explanation!

I like the one about keeping the flag in. When I play by myself, I always leave it in. It also means less foot traffic around the flag.

In my opinion, the most significant rule change is the one “permitting committees to allow golfers the option to drop the ball in the vicinity of where the ball is lost or out of bounds (including the nearest fairway area), under a two-stroke penalty. It addresses concerns raised at the club level about the negative impact on pace of play when a player is required to go back under stroke and distance.”

Loved the shot out of the water—I laughed so hard! Thanks for putting that in there!
