Barry Rhodes’ Blog, which is a regular feed at the foot of this website, contains his analysis of the latest changes in the Rules from Jan 1st 2016. May I remind all Member Clubs and Players that I am a qualified Referee and available over Winter, if needed, to have a talk about the Rules which can involve a quiz if desired. Juniors should also try the R&A quizzes on their website. The content changes regularly, so keep trying even if you get 100%.
Ben Warren, formerly a Junior with both North Berwick and The Glen Golf Clubs has an article currently published on the R&A website. Ben is involved in the golf industry and has set out his views on how to encourage more players into the game. This is worth reading I suggest, but then, I am Ben’s Dad!
