Some rules of Golf

The official rules of golf are regulated by the Royal and Ancient St..

 The United States Golf Association (USGA) is the game's governing body in the United States and Mexico.
Since 1952, the R  & A USGA  worked together to continually review, revise and clarify the rules of golf.
 The idea behind this is to have consistency for rules in golf, so that players all over the World can play with the same laws.
All the PGA golf pros should know every rule of golf or it can be very expensive for them.
 But for the casual golfer, there is normally not much need of going into some of the complicated golf club rules as regards to equipment specifications.
In this article, I will not go all the rules and regulations of golf, but we will see the label and golf rules made it easy for the average golfer or casual.
 Even if you are just playing for fun or if you occasionally enter local amateur golf tournaments, you will get more enjoyment out of the game if you know the more important basic golf rules.
Golf etiquette golf is still considered a "game manager", it is important to understand what behavior is frowned upon on the golf course.
 As golf is played without close supervision, it is up to the individual golfer to show integrity, honesty, and sportsmanship.
This is what is the rules of golf - is the spirit of golf.
 Here are some more specific golf etiquette rules:
* Safety - Don't swing your club when someone is standing nearby and could be hit by your club, ball, or some other object.
* Do not swing or hit your approach shot to the green, until the group is still far away from the green or left.

* When your ball is hit in the direction of someone and there is a danger that it may hit them, you are obliged to shout a warning such as "fore".
* If you lose the ball ,you will first play a provisional ball back from the tee.
 When looking for your ball, you should spend no more than five minutes doing so, and you should signal the group behind to play through if you are holding them up.
* Once the group has finished on the green, you should immediately leave, let the group behind to play.
 Don't fill in your scorecard on the green, wait until you are well clear of the green to do so.
* If the group is constantly playing slower than the group behind then they should play through
 You should always be ready to play your shot when it is your turn.
* Be considerate to other golfers - not to make noise, the projection of a shadow, or make movements when you are under their shots.

* Tending the pin - if you are nearest to the pin when another player is taking their putt, it is customary to tend the pin.
* After hitting a bunker, you should remove your footsteps rake and all other brands.
 In fact, golf etiquette dictates that you should leave the bunker in a better condition than you found it.
* On the green, you should remove the mark made when the ball landed with a pitch fork over another brand.

* You should always replace or fill in your divots on the fairway.
Basic rules of golf If you do not want to disturb your partner golf, you should learn the basics of the following: * Golf Club rules - the maximum number of clubs that will be allowed to play two with.
 There is nothing to say that you can't have two drivers or two different types of putter, just that the total number of clubs is limited to fourteen.
* Order of Play - The player who is first off the tees  Honour .
 In other words, the player who scored the lowest score on the previous hole.
Is this the first hole, you can choose among you, or toss a coin.
 On the fairway or green, the player who is furthest from the green or hole goes first.
* If the ball is in play  we should not touch or move until the ball is holed out.
 The exceptions being; on the green you can mark your ball to clean it before putting; when taking a drop, you have to lift your ball; or you have hit the ball out of bounds and you remove the ball.
* When removing from the fairway or rough or especially in the trees, branches and leaves from around the loose ball but the ball must not move when  doing it.

* When teeing off, you have to place the ball between the two markers and never in front of them.
You may be outside the teeing area to a ball that hit inside are, but you can not move if they are the markers in the way.

* When addressing the ball on the tee and the ball falls off, you may replace it without a penalty.
* On the green, you can remove all loose objects from your line of putt.

* When it is your turn to putt, you must wait until the previous player's ball has stopped moving.
* You will be punished if you hit the flag stick with the ball and putting on the green, but not from outside the green.

* If you hit your ball into a water hazard or out of bounds, you must play another ball from the designated drop zone or from a position any distance behind the hazard (including the original position of where your ball was) but no closer to the hole - you will be penalized a stroke.
These are some of the rules of golf is easy to understand for the casual player to get more joy out of the game and so there are no conflicts between players.

There are many more that you should learn to have a full understanding of the game.
