The changes can’t come soon enough for some.
“The game is going to die because it’s too slow, two difficult and there’s too many rules,” Kevin Kisner told USA Today. “Our generation wants instant everything. You can pull out a phone and Google anything, but you have you pull out a rule book that’s got 700 pages to figure out what rule infraction you broke.”
The changes include:
Flags can stay in the hole during a putt
Caddies can’t line up a player.
Balls can be removed from bunkers with a two-stroke penalty
No penalty if a ball accidentally moves on a green
Some of the changes are being embraced, while others are not being accepted by all players.
