From the Pro: 2016 Rule Changes

As of January 1, 2016, the United States Golf Association’s 2016 Rules of Golf are now in effect. The 2016 update includes a few new rules and changes that may come into play here at Lady Bird Golf Course.

Here are three rule changes you need to know before you play your next round:

  1. 14-1 prohibits players from using an anchored stroke while putting.
  2. 6-6 modifies the penalty of Disqualification for signing an incorrect card.
  3. 18-2 changes the definition and penalty if a ball at rest is moved.
