The R&A and the USGA have announced a major set of proposed changes to the Rules of Golf. These changes result from our Rules Modernisation initiative that began five years ago in an effort to bring the Rules up to date to fit the needs of the game today globally.

The background to the initiative and the major proposals are provided on the R&A website under Rules Modernisation, along with extensive resource materials. There is also the opportunity for you to provide feedback on what you think of these proposals by providing feedback via an on-line survey.
