Golf Rule of the Month
I want to take this opportunity to address a ruling that the USGA just put into effect on January 1st, 2017. The rule has to do with a ball being moved on a putting green. The new rule states that if the ball is moved on accident in any way, the player must place the ball back in its original spot with no penalty.
The USGA has made this a local rule, so each golf club has to decide if they are going to include this rule in their tournaments.
Here at Point Venture, we are going to add this rule to all of our tournaments as well as our MGA and WGA.
If you have any questions on this rule or any other rule please feel free to stop in and ask me.
Keep it in the fairway!
