Following the period of public feedback ending on August 31, 2017, the USGA and The R&A will enter into the final drafting stages of the new Rules of Golf. In 2018, the new Rules will be released, which will kick-start education on the changes in preparation for the effective date of January 1, 2019. In partnership with allied associations across the golf community, the USGA and The R&A plan to leverage mobile and digital technologies, along with traditional classroom offerings, throughout the summer and fall months of 2018 to prepare golfers and administrators at all levels of the game. Stay tuned for more information on how you can get involved.
