A Tweak in the Rules of Golf
Posted 28 October 2011 - 08:40 AM
“'Golf is an inherently complicated game, and the concepts of simplicity and fairness very often pull in diametrically opposed directions,' said David Rickman, the director for rules and equipment for the R&A, formerly the Royal and Ancient Golf Club, the sport’s ruling body in much of the world.
"But change is not unheard of. And it came this week with a whiff of the revolutionary. The R&A, along with the United States Golf Association, which administers the game in this country, amended nine principal regulations from the Rules of Golf, the bible of the game. No longer will a player be penalized a stroke if the wind moves his ball while his club is near it. And if he or she smoothes the sand before playing a shot from a bunker, and in doing so does not gain an advantage, well, that’s O.K., too."

Get your facts first, and then you can distort them as much as you please.
