I just took twenty minutes to run through the videos and text found at the
link above.  There are some changes here that everyone should know.  I hope
you can find the time to learn the changes and incorporate them into your
game starting in 2019.

 

I have also attached a copy of the 2019 rules for your further detailed
review.

 

Of note when reviewing only the major changes:  The old "Water Hazard" is
now a yellow penalty area, while the old "Lateral Water Hazard" is now a red
penalty area.  The options for a yellow penalty area are only:

 

(1) Stroke-and-Distance Relief. 

(2) Back-On-the-Line Relief. 

 

While a red penalty area includes the additional option of

(3) Lateral Relief

 

Warm Regards,

Charlie Hopkins
