Rule 1 – The Game, Player Conduct and the Rules
Concept of “Serious Misconduct” introduced. Focuses on a player’s actions as well as underlying intentions – brings etiquette into the Rules.
Committee may create a “Code of Conduct” that applies golf penalties to actions that are not a breach of a Rule.
“Reasonable Judgment” standard introduced to recognize that players are regularly required to make estimates when applying the Rules and often cannot be precise.
Rule 2 – The Course
Areas of the course go from 4 to 5
Term “hazard” eliminated
“Through the green” is now the general area
New term “abnormal course conditions” now include immovable obstructions
Concept of a “no play zone” replaces the previously limited use of environmentally sensitive area and GUR mandatory relief
Rule 3 – The Competition
“Wrong information” replaced by “giving the wrong number of strokes taken” and “failing to tell opponent about a penalty”
Hole scores are now certified, rather than the scorecard (now one word) being signed, to allow electronic forms of scorecards
The 2018 Local Rule (no penalty for a wrong score because of an unknown penalty) incorporated into the Rules
Timeline to “request a ruling” on the last hole of a match extended until the “match is final”
Timeline to correct a mistake on the last hole of a stroke-play round extended until the scorecard is returned
Rule 4 – The Player’s Equipment
No penalty for carrying a non-conforming club, penalty only for making a stroke
A player may repair any damage to a club that occurs during a round – “normal course of play” limitation on repair has been eliminated.
If an adjustable feature on a club has been purposely changed, it may be restored without penalty before it is used
Damaged ball, only “cut” or “cracked” damage substitution allowed, “out of shape” has been eliminated for replacing a damaged ball
The Rules now permit distance-measuring devices, a Local Rule may be used to prohibit their use
Players may practice on the course after they have completed play for that day, even between consecutive rounds of stroke play
Penalty for a first breach of “unreasonable delay” is now one stroke in both
match and stroke play
An individual may “stop play” on his or her own only because of lightning – stopping due to sudden illness or to get a ruling are now addressed under the unreasonable delay rule
Rule 6 – Playing a Hole
The teeing area (not “teeing ground”) is two club-lengths in depth as measured by the player’s longest club that is not a putter (definition of club-length)
Any time a ball is in the teeing area, there is no penalty for accidentally or deliberately moving the ball when it is in play, including moving it somewhere else in the teeing area
Recommendations related to prompt pace of play, including encouraging “ready golf”
Rule 6.3 – Playing a Hole: Ball Used in Play of Hole
A ball is lost only if not found within the three-minute search time
Another ball may be substituted when taking free relief (dropping and placing)
Rule 7 – Ball Search: Finding and Identifying Ball
Player no longer gets a penalty for improving conditions during a search so long as it happened while “fairly searching”
No longer necessary to announce or involve others when lifting a ball for identification
No longer a penalty if a ball is moved while searching or trying to identify it
Rule 8 – Course Played a It Is Found
The definition of “conditions affecting the stroke” allows the “protected areas” in the 2016 Rules to be referred to in the new Rules under this umbrella definition.
Building a stance is now a breach of “improving,” no longer stand alone Rule.
If a player improves a condition affecting their stroke, in some cases the actions may be “undone” before the next stroke is made and the player will not get a penalty.
In some cases when a condition affecting a player’s stroke are worsened, the player can restore (improve) the worsened condition.
Rule 9 – Ball Played as It Lies; Ball at Rest Lifted or Moved
A ball is “treated as” moved only if it is known or virtually certain that it did move
Definition of moved now includes the “naked eye” standard
Player protections from getting a penalty for moving a ball extended to cover “while taking reasonable actions”
“Directly attributable” limitation eliminated
Rule 10 – Preparing for and Making a Stroke; Advice and Help; Caddies
Making a stroke when standing across or on line of play is not allowed anywhere on the course
Line of play on the putting green may be touched, for instance in showing a player where to aim, even when ball is on the putting green
A player’s caddie (or partner) must not be positioned behind the player when the player beings to take his or her stance
Rule 11 – Ball in Motion Accidentally Hits Person, Animal or Object; Deliberate Actions to Affect Ball in Motion
No penalty for accidental deflections and ball is played as it lies (in stroke play, still penalty for putting and striking ball at rest on putting green)
Deliberate deflections under Rule 11.2 are “outcome based,” there is no penalty if ball is not deflected
“Might influence the movement of the ball” standard eliminated and replaced by intent-based standard for deliberate acts
Rule 12 - Bunkers
Walls and lips are not part of the bunker
Relaxed restrictions on touching the sand when ball is in a bunker
Loose impediments may be removed without penalty
Rule 13 – Putting Greens
Almost all damage to the putting green may be repaired
No penalty for any accidental movement of a ball or ball-marker on the putting green
If player’s ball has been lifted or moved, and the ball then moves after being replaced, the ball now “owns” that spot. The player will play from that spot no matter what caused the ball to move.
Interference from a wrong green now includes the player’s stance and area of intended swing
Player may leave the flagstick in the hole when playing from anywhere, and gets no penalty if it if his or her ball in motion strikes it
Rule 14 – Procedures for Ball: Marking, Lifting and Cleaning; Replacing on Spot; Dropping in Relief Area; Playing from Wrong Place
Notable Changes (14.1 – 14.7)
New limitations on what may be used to mark the spot of a ball
Ball must be replaced by hand to be replaced in the “right way”
Dropping in the “right way” includes three things
- Player must drop ball (but in partner forms of play, partner may as well)
- Ball must be dropped from knee height and must not touch any person or equipment before it hits the ground
- Ball must be dropped into the relief area
Any procedure that requires dropping will always include dropping in a relief area – there are no procedures in the Rules that require the player to drop on a specific spot, line or reference point
Rules now state that putting a ball into play is an intentional act
If a player is required to drop a ball again and has done something that would be a penalty, he or she might not get a penalty if a ball is dropped again
Deadline for correcting a serious breach of playing from a wrong place on the last hole is before the player’s scorecard is returned
Abnormal Course Conditions include immovable obstructions, in addition to GUR, temporary water and animal holes
Animal Holes, including casts and runways, are no longer limited to holes made by “burrowing” animals
Obstructions are one or the other, movable or immovable, not both
Rule 15 - Relief from Loose Impediments and Movable Obstructions (including ball or ball-marker helping or interfering with play)
Loose impediments may be removed from bunkers and penalty areas
Player will drop a ball into a relief area when taking relief for a ball in or on a movable obstruction
Lifting a ball based on it “helping” another player (previously “assisting), only applies when the helping ball is on the putting green
Balls and ball-markers are treated equally with respect to helping or interfering
Rule 16 - Relief Abnormal Course Conditions (including immovable obstructions), Dangerous Animal Condition, Embedded Ball
Abnormal Course Conditions now include immovable obstructions
Any abnormal course condition may be treated as a no play zone
Embedded ball Rule now applies in the general area by default. A Local Rule may be used to restrict relief to “fairway height or less areas”
No longer necessary to announce or involve others when lifting a ball to see if relief is allowed
Rule 17 – Penalty Areas
The terms “water hazard” and “hazard” have been eliminated from the Rules
Penalty Areas are not limited to just open water courses, Committees have wide discretion on what can be marked a penalty area
“Edge” of a penalty area replaces the term “margin” of a water hazard
Relief on the opposite side of a red penalty area is only available by Local Rule
Any penalty area can be treated as a no play zone
Rule 18 – Stroke - and – Distance Relief; Ball Lost or Out of Bounds; Provisional Ball
Players now have a one club-length relief area when taking stroke-and-distance relief
A ball is lost if not found within three minutes after the player’s side or caddie has started to search for it
A player may go back and play a provisional ball after going forward to search
Announcement of a provisional ball may be made to anyone
Rule 19 – Unplayable Ball
Players have a new two stroke penalty relief option to get out of a bunker
Rule 20 – Resolving Rules Issues During Round; Rulings by Referee and Committee
If a player does not announce which ball he or she wishes to score with when playing two balls, the first ball played is treated as the ball selected
Naked eye standard introduced to disregard breaches that could not have been seen with the naked eye or were otherwise not possible to know
After the result of the match is final or the stroke-play competition is closed, players may be disqualified for serious misconduct
Rule 21 – Other Forms of Individual Stroke Play and Match Play
New form of stroke play introduced, Maximum Score
Rules now recognize and embrace scrambles, greensomes and other forms of play not previously supported by the Rules
Rule 22 – Foursome (also known as alternate shot)
Either player may act for the side, regardless of which player is next to play (such as dropping a ball, deciding a ball is unplayable, etc.)
Rule 23 – Four - Ball
Either partner may take an action regarding the other player’s ball (example: your partner can drop your ball for you)
Rule 24 – Team Competition
This Rule is new and covers a topic not previously addressed in the Rules
New term “advice giver” is used to refer to the individual(s) in a team competition who may give or be asked for advice.
So long as there is no individual component in a team competition, a Local Rule can be used allowing teammates in the same group to give each other advice
