  PLEASE READ (at least once)!

With the Covid 19 virus ongoing, many (millions) more people than normal are using the internet.  Due to this, the TGA website is operating slower than usual.  When opening new pages, the website may experience a time-out on page loading.  When this happens, you should get an error page.  Just close the error page and try again.  If it happens again, you will have to try at a later time.  The best times seem to be before 10 am and after 8 pm; and on weekends.

If you are trying to enter a tournament, the website may fail to reach the PayPal page (separate operation from TGA).  The PayPal page may never appear (wait for 1 minute), in which case, just close that browser tab.  We will receive your entry form, but you never got to PayPal for payment.  Just try again later.  We will reconcile multiple entries.  If everything goes well, you should get an email from TGA system and one from PayPal.

Sorry about this, but it (slow loading) is happening all over the internet.  Our website is a little information rich (large) and is a little slower than many.  It seems to work fine in off-peak times.  I'm working to find ways to speed up our website.

The USGA Rules of Golf for 2019 have been published.  This link will take you to the USGA 2019 Rules and Interpretations page with a selection of Players Edition, Full Rules and Rules Interpretations.  If you are using a tablet or smartphone, you will be better served by getting the USGA mobile app: "USGA Rules of Golf 21019" in your app store.

  • The Players Edition is the one that you should carry in your golf bag (Available on the USGA Shop; free if you are a USGA member).  It covers most of the common rules.
  • The Full Rules is just that.
  • The Interpretations are decisions made by golf's ruling body that covers things not clearly covered by the Rules of Golf (nit-picking).

Click on the link on the left to view the new rules implemented 1/1/2019.
