Monday, the USGA and R&A announced the final rules for the 2019-2022 rulebook, and they were some groundbreaking changes. Not since 1984 has the game been changed so drastically. From changing where the ball is to be dropped to removing double hit penalties, the game will become a lot more relaxed come January 1, 2019. They also brought in rules for amateur players, like not having to walk back to the tee for a ball out of bounds or lost.
