New Adoptable Local Rule for 2017

Did you know that the USGA Rules of Golf allows for the Committee (those in charge of a golf competition) to adopt Specimen Local Rules? Those currently available can be found beginning on page 138 of your Rules of Golf booklet. Such things as prohibiting play from Ground Under Repair, protection of young trees, “preferred lies”, and more.

Unless I am mistaken, this video describes what will be an additional Specimen Local  Rule available to Committees beginning in 2017.

I have no argument.

Do you?
