Final changes to new Rules of Golf include HUGE amendments

The USGA  and R&A have today revealed the final version of golf's new rules that will go into effect on January 1, 2019 - and there are some BIG changes that will affect all of us. 

The most notable changes made by golf's governing bodies include fresh directives on how to take a drop, as well as an alternate solution for dealing with a lost ball or when a ball goes out of bounds. 

"It's been a long process but a gratifying one," said Thomas Pagel, the USGA's senior director of rules and amateur status. "Now comes the fun part where we get to share with the world everything that has been done."
