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.
