    Is Joe LaCava Tiger's Best Choice of Caddie?

    Tiger and Steve were an excellent winning team. Tiger was a mess being ostracized by society norms and got rid of Sreve, in my opinion, by an ill thought out knee jerk reaction to sponsors, etc getting rid of him. Perhaps Tiger will get his winning team back together if he,s smart.

    USGA/R&A Finalize 2019 Rules of Golf

    I volunteer in course maintenance at a cliff top course in New Zealand with winds sometimes reaching 60 mph + and we occasionally have to pull the flags out to prevent damage to the hole during these times. Generally, leaving the pin in during normal play doesn't damage a golf hole. Yes Kidnappers, Gulf Harbour and others. (I corrected this to say 60 mph not 60 kph)

    Is Joe LaCava Tiger's Best Choice of Caddie?

    If Tiger is smart he should get Steve back if he can. Steve's strong work ethic is very similar to Tiger's. Being in New Zealand I've met Steve Williams and played golf with him and he's one of the finest people I've ever met. Both Steve and Tiger know you have to work at it to get results. They made one of the finest duos in golf competitions and I hope we all see them together again.

    USGA/R&A Finalize 2019 Rules of Golf

    In the old rules or the new rules, in my opinion, it's best not to take anything too serious at times. 😁 “If you call on God to improve the results of a shot while it is still in motion, you are using "an outside agency" and subject to appropriate penalties under the rules of golf.” - Henry Longhurst

    USGA/R&A Finalize 2019 Rules of Golf

    What used to be called water hazards are now called "Penalty Areas." If your ball comes to rest in a "penalty area" you are allowed to take two club lengths lateral relief under new Rule 17. But can you, therefore, take lateral relief from water? See this USGA explanation of the new penalty areas concept > http://www.usga.org/content/usga/home-page/rules-hub/rules-modernization/major-changes/areas-the-committee-may-mark-as-penalty-areas.html

    USGA/R&A Finalize 2019 Rules of Golf

    Maybe I'm missing something, and probably am, but the official guide put out by USGA and R & A is over 500 pages. They were also working on a Summary to help adjustment to the new rules and put one Summary out, then retracted it to revise it? I'm not sure. Is there an official summary you can take with you on the course and use during play put out by the USGA and R&A? In other words, you can't flip through 500 pages for an answer during play. But is there a 2-3 page short summary put out by the USGA and R&A yet? Or are they not going to put one out?
