Golf Australia Express : GA Express 317
COVER RULES ARE MADE TO BE AMMENDED The recent changes to the Rules of Golf were largely heralded as a step in the right direction during 2018, before the R&A and USGA officially put them in place as of January 1. However, multiple of the new rules have come into question after their early implementations, while some appear to have been completely ignored. Haotong Li’s penalty at the 72nd hole in Dubai last week has been largely paned despite rule makers and others pointing out that the rule was correctly enforced to the letter of the law. What made the Chinese player’s unfortunate plight more incredulous however, was eventual winner Bryson DeChambeau taking an excessive amount of time to hit shots on numerous occasions. WHILE WE WERE WORDS: JIMMY EMANUEL ALTHOUGH THE MODERN PLAYER NO LONGER HAS AN OFF SEASON, THE TEAM AT GOLF AUSTRALIA EXPRESS MANAGED A SHORT BREAK OVER THE PAST MONTH. HERE ARE A FEW OF THE BIG EVENTS THAT HAPPENED DURING THAT TIME AND COULD SHAPE THE GOLFING LANDSCAPE IN 2019. The amended rules recommend 40 seconds as the time taken to play a stroke. A video posted by the European Tour’s social media channels shows the American analysing factors including air density from just over 100 metres during the same round that Li was penalised and runs for one minute and 35 seconds, even starting well and truly after it was DeChambeau’s turn to play. Meanwhile, the less said about the number of players bending their legs as they seemingly incorrectly drop from the new knee height mark the better.
