IE The Groove Rule "We know the PGA Tour has stated that they will adopt the rule starting January 1, 2010, followed by other top level events, such as the USGA championships, in 2014. What does this mean to the average every day golfer and weekend hack? Not much. All rounds played for handicap purposes must use conforming grooves starting in 2024."
Most of us are probably familiar with the "Groove Rule". There are many instance where there are different rules for different levels of competition. For example football, basketball, and baseball on the high school, college, and pro levels have different rules.
Should there be any other rules for the pros that would be different for the amateurs (for example for pros different balls that do not go so far or a lesser penalty for OB for amateurs)?
