Main Rules Changes for 2023

The revised rule book for 2023 and beyond is now published. As expected not many changes to get our heads around – here is the R&A/USGA’s “infographic” on the main changes.

I’ll go through each one in turn over the next few days and pick out any others of interest as well.

Make sure you update the App on the phone (or download it if you don’t already have it) – it now has a preview of the 2023 Rules and will have a full update released in mid December. Search for “R&A Rules of Golf” in the relevant app store.

If you want a full copy of the book, head to where you can order one for just the cost of post and packing.

It is also downloadable here

    1. I’m sorry about that Andy. I’ve clicked on both links again and they work for me. If you go to the R&A website main page ( and scroll right down to the bottom (it takes a lot of scrolling), there is a link to the “Publications Shop”. Click on this and you should then be able to follow through to the Rules Publications.


      1. Thanks for the reply, I’ve sorted it now, it works if you sign into an account or register 1st, it’s when you try & check out as a guest it fails🤷🏼‍♂️🤷🏼‍♂️👍🏻👍🏻
