The rules of golf are a reoccurring theme at The Grateful Golfer. They are important to the integrity of the game, but more importantly for those aspiring players who want to compete in tournaments. This video below by Golf Monthly is brilliant. It explains three simple rules that will save you strokes in the long run!
The three important points that resonate with me are:
- actually saying the words “provisional ball”;
- when dropping the ball, it can roll outside two club lengths as long as it goes no closer to the hole; and
- when taking free relief, it must be full relief.
Did you know these rules and do you apply them properly?
