The R&A and the USGA are proposing regulations regarding the use of green-reading materials, reaffirming the need for a player to read greens based on their own judgement, skill and ability.
Following a six-week period of feedback and consultation with interested parties that begins, the regulations will be finalised in a published “interpretation” of Rule 4.3 (Use of Equipment) and adopted 1 January 2019, when golf’s new rules take effect.
