That may be one of the easiest to read and best documents out there. It casually bats away a number of assorted complaints and things about "why didn't they change this" or "why can't I drop from a divot hole," etc.

I encourage everyone to take ten minutes to read it.

Excellent document. I guess Mackenzie  Hughes needs to read this.

The new-look Rules of Golf will go into effect on Jan. 1, 2019, but PGA Tour pro Mackenzie Hughes isn't looking...

I saw that, and he's not as opposed as one of the headlines made it seem.  I also took a look at the twitter comments, and the big thing is still fairway divots.  I imagine that most of us have an issue with one or two of the rule changes, but overall I like the simpler language, I like the added illustrations, and can see legitimate reasons for most of the changes.

And I thank @iacas for the reference to the USGA  article.  Its one thing to look at that DID happen, but its nice to understand some of the things that didn't get changed.

Page 4 says they need more time to consider the penalty for a double hit.  But doesn't the final version of 10.1a remove the penalty?

The USGA's document is for the "proposed" rules changes.

The R&A has a PDF available here: https://www.randa.org/en/rog/2019/pages/resources-centre?filters=. Basically, page 4 is eliminated. 🙂

I didn’t see the Twitter feed but was curious if any TST members were in there. His suggestion on anchoring wouldn’t work so he definitely ‘missed the mark’ on that one.

The one iacas posted first is described as FINAL VERSION. The second one is described as March 2018 Update.

6. Proposals that Need More Time for Consideration is not in the second

To clarify… yes, the USGA one is from 2017. The "final version" of the notes for the proposed rules.

The March 2018 one is for the actual finalized rules.

So they are not reconsidering the removal of the penalty 😃

    • Day 36 (01 Aug 21) - More work on swing tempo focusing on getting a consistent 3:1 tempo.  
    • The above is the first I've heard of booster shots.  Hopefully I find a place to get one that doesn't involve over a half hour's drive to a city named Corona like my first two shots.
    • and, quoting the above: The line of best fit for the data of GIR vs score is 95 - 2 * GIR.  That's probably where @reidsou's number came from.   Note that, even if we treat it as the standard goal (I agree with you, as you'll see in a moment), an average 11-GIR round probably has one or two birdies thrown in, and I'd bet that most of those missed greens in such a round (again, for an average 11-GIR round) are probably very much near-GIR.  That having been said, there are some of us, such as the original poster on this thread and I, whose long game is such that more than seven GIR isn't unheard of (which that formula would "predict," if we use it to predict at least, a round in the 70s) but who still score in the 80s.  I even recently had a round with 9 GIR and a score of 90 -- which is why 95 - 2 *GIR isn't meant to predict any individual's score, but does still highlight the importance of GIR and ball striking. Which brings me to my next point, which is also @Shorty's next point:  yeah, 50% chipping and putting is not the way to go, certainly not long term.  Maybe with the goal of getting those traits to about an average 20-handicapper's level (without sacrificing approach shot strength), and then using the 15/20 time productively in future weeks to improve on them.  The nice thing about chipping and putting is that there is some low hanging fruit as far as getting competent goes, especially if one is building off the sort of short game shots that come from missing fewer than half of one's GIRs.
    • The people I noticed who got vaxxed early, some of it was they knew an inside person, other than knowing exactly which sites to hit and when. Like people who were fully vaxxed by February/March.  
    • I flew over Cabot Cliffs and Southport and the rendering of these courses was really poor. Guessing you have to find the courses where specific work was done to make them look realistic.
