In 2012 the R&A and the USGA began the process to modernise the Rules of Golf to ensure that the rules were easier to understand, would apply for all golfers and would make the game more attractive and accesssible for newcomers.

The new modernised Rules of Golf were implemented on 01 January 2019.

To provide some understanding of how the new rules apply the Yorkshire Union of Golf Clubs are compiling some short stories of Aubreythe rules expert that nobody wishes to play with:
