Have you ever played with a person who never seems to lose a ball on the course?  "Here it is" is heard often from these folks.  Sadly I have played with a few in my life as a professional golfer, and rather than get into a confrontation with this type of golfer, just ignore them, and make sure you never play with them again!  If you are playing for money, and you have undeniable proof that they are cheating, that's the only time to bring something up.  Stay away from cheaters, they are not worth the time . . .

Do you know the rules of golf? Part 1

Knowing the rules of golf can save you shots during the round.  So in the same way you go to the range and work on your game, sometimes go to your rule book and study the rules.  Better still, get the USGA's book called "Rules and Decisions"  This is a book filled with letters written in to the USGA requesting a ruling that happened in live play.  Not only is it much easier to learn the rules this way, but shows the complexity of a game played on different terrains in different weather conditions.  Great read.

As a golf instructor, I help people improve their golf.  One of the sessions I hold at my club once in a while is a rules seminar.  In order to play good golf and score well, you need to know some basic rules for situations that you will come across fairly regularly.  If you don't know the rules you will get penalized and this will add strokes to your score.  How many times do we see on the PGA and LPGA Tours, golfers who make an innocent mistake that costs them dearly.  Dustin Johnson in . . .
