CHECK YOUR DRIVER! DOES IT CONFIRM TO
NEW RULE OR WILL IT BE ILLEGAL ON JAN 1
Club golfers are being urged by the R&A to check that their driving clubs conform to a new Rule of Golf that comes into effect on January 1, 2008, and applies to all golfers of all abilities and in all forms of play.
Driving clubs must not have the effect of a spring which exceeds the limit set forth in a Pendulum Test Protocol established by the R&A.
While many golfers have already replaced or made plans to replace such clubs with conforming models, some golfers are still unaware of the new Rule and its implications.
Golf clubs have been asked to raise awareness of the new Rule among their members and to assist them in determining the conformance status of their drivers to minimise any uncertainty and confusion that may lead to disqualification.
