During the winter months,
inclement weather and the lack of daylight hours frequently conspire to keep us
off the golf course.
Being stuck inside doesn’t mean we
can’t still stay connected to the game, though. This winter when plunging
temperatures or a less-than-ideal forecast has you hunkered down at home, use
the downtime to brush up on your Rules of Golf knowledge.
A fun and engaging way to develop
and test your comprehension is with the USGA’s Rules Quizzes. These interactive,
multiple-choice, and easy-to-navigate quizzes are available in basic,
intermediate, and advanced difficulty levels. The quizzes can provide another
path to learning the rules and be an effective way to boost motivation and
increase retention for those who might be intimidated at the thought of
studying the official rule book.
Every golfer, no matter what skill level, should know the basics of the
Rules of Golf. A sound knowledge of the Rules is essential to preserve the integrity and enjoyment of the game
and will allow you to deal with situations you most regularly encounter on the
course. It may even save you a few strokes on occasion!
The USGA Rules Quizzes are designed
to engage anyone who is interested in learning more about the Rules, from
beginners to everyday golfers to aspiring officials and referees.
