Golf has always been set up to govern yourself and the ones you are playing with. It's supposed to be a honest game. Obviuosly it's not going like that. All violations should be called at all times on all players regardless of skill level. Especially am's. They need to know what the rules are. This is the Professional D.G.A. not the Ameteur D.G.A.. When you sign up for a tourney you should know all the rules and follow them. Everybody should be required to carry a rulebook or there should be an official on every card in these big events. It's not just for fun at the top anymore. It's a bussiness and a livelyhood for some. The Professional D.G.A. is just trying to be more focused on that everybody is playing by the same rules. Every point and cash paying event big or small should be Professional. I know the few times I've played ameteur lately that some of the people have no clue of the rules. Or they just don't want to follow them. I'm all for this kind of thing. Everybody should be aware of what the rules are. If everybody carried a rule book and was familier with it we wouldn't have as many problems. As for the 2 meter rule. I've never thought it was correct anyway. If you are supposed to play it where it comes to rest. Anything above ground should be a penalty not just two meters. So I'm glad it's gone. Three meters would be hard to judge, Two meters was easy because that is about 6 feet. About ten feet would be hard to judge. Need more oncourse officials and evryone should have a rulebook.
