Agreed but direction is commonly experienced. "It's coming from the right". When the wind is swirling no one can really give advice other than the direction is variable. 

Speed is a different matter. Players may/will have different perceptions of speed but it could be measured accurately and therefore be of more assistance.

Just an example, the 13th tee at my club is pretty sheltered, lots of swirling effect is felt at the tee.  I'll often tell players (after we've played to the par-3) that the "real" wind direction is what we experienced in more open territory on the 11th fairway.  Would that type of comment about wind direction NOT be considered advice under the new rules?  That's the way I read the new Definition of Advice.

Seems pretty definitive to me.

But advice does not include public information, such as:

  • Wind direction,

Would saying "It's a two club head wind" count as advice? It is not speed or distance but I would think it constitutes as advice.

What is this?


Rules Of Golf Major Changes for 2022/2023

Is there really going to be an 18 club limit and 0.93 COR Drivers? 

 

My bag is an ever-changing combination of clubs. 

A mix I am forever tinkering with.

Chet…

Golf Handicap Association is in charge of maintaining the core rules of golf. In 2021 we realized that golfers were unhappy with the game.

Golfers wanted:

  1. Golf To Be More Enjoyable
  2. Technology and Club Improvements which have been stagnant in recent years due to rules restrictions
  3. Faster Rounds as playing felt slow and
  4. Equal access to information without having to reach a certain level of play or be able to hire a professional caddie.

The 2023 Major Changes for the rules of golf which are included in this version of the Rules Of Golf by the GHA has addressed many of these issues and includes changes to the game of golf that haven’t been seen in over a hundred years. a hundred years.

They're clearly (IMO) the rules for whatever the hell the "GHA" is.

And if that wasn't enough, on the home page…

So, this is not like a "real" thing then? 
Because personally I hate most of these quote, unquote rules.

Of course not. The GHA, whatever they are, are not the USGA or R&A.

These are just made up rules for their group.

    • Augusta National Women's Amateur: 2 big-time changes coming This year's upcoming Augusta National Women's Amateur will feature some new changes that should be well-received by fans.  
    • Didn't capture a video since dark outside so can't say for sure if it's a fact or just what I'm feeling but it seems that if the hands don't gather depth by A2, it gets much harder to gain depth later (unless you are Rory).  Conversely once you get the hands even slightly deeper at A2 than address (no club rolling) it gets easier to gain depth further. I practiced this with my shoulder plumb line to floor for check at A2. The ball compression with my 18 deg iron felt really really good. Swing felt shorter with a faster tempo. So...., low hands with arms unified with torso skate slightly inside of shoulder plumb line when they arrive at A2. Clubhead should sweep but not roll maintaining forearm to shaft angle.  Letting my left arm fully rise to chin after this seemed to make it really easy to transition and honestly to an awesome impact. Practice was fun today.
