Over the coming weeks, we will be sending out information regarding the rule changes
Each week will cover a different topic.
Dropping the ball

So, what's new?
In 2019, players will continue to drop a ball when taking relief, but the dropping procedure will be changed in several ways:

• The ball must be let go from knee height so that it falls through the air
• The focus of the dropping procedure will be to drop the ball in a specific “relief area”
• No re-drop is required if the dropped ball accidentally hits a person or object after hitting the ground but before coming to rest in the relief area
• If the dropped ball comes to rest outside the relief area, it will be dropped a second time; if it comes to rest outside the relief area after being dropped a second time it will be placed where it first touched the ground
• If the placed ball will not come to rest on that spot after two attempts, the player will then place the ball on the nearest spot (not nearer the hole) where it will come to rest
Read more on the changes to dropping procedure

Reasons for change
Lowering the height from which the ball is dropped increases the chance it will stay in the relief area, while retaining a desired randomness.
