Know the Rules! We have all seen both PGA and LPGA players lose tournaments because of a rules infraction. None so devastating as Dustin Johnson losing the PGA Championship at Whistling Straits by grounding his club in a bunker that he did not realize was a bunker. By knowing the rules, you can save yourself several shots in a round of golf, plus you will know when a fellow competitor breaks a rule. Remember, when you play in a stroke play event, it is your duty to know the rules to protect the rest of the field from anyone gaining an advantage. Thanks to the Mel Sole Golf School for helping out with this important subject!

In this month’s video, Mel Sole shares an important off-the-course golf tip: know the rules of golf! Decisions on the Rules of Golf is an excellent manual that clarifies any ambiguity that might arise from the Rules and allows you to correctly interpret the complete Rules of Golf.
How does knowing the Rules help you shoot lower scores? As Mel describes in telling a story about Harry Bradshaw’s big mistake in the ’49 British Open, not knowing the Rules leads to bad decisions on the course—decisions that will cost you shots!
