The Rules of Golf have long been ridiculed for their strictness and ambiguity but this stands as a positive step for clarity on how the game is governed. Also included in the Player’s Edition are colored diagrams for further context and clarification.
The 21-second video shows Mickelson leaning over a rifle (and sporting a U.S. Ryder Cup hat). “Twelve-hundred-fifty yards” he said. “Slight crosswind.” Boom! The 48-year-old then slowly turns his head toward the camera. “Nailed it” he said. The Ryder Cup will be played in France for the first time ever in just a few weeks.
Gretzky and Johnson have two children together. They have been engaged since 2013. Golf’s newest set of rules is published and ready for you…and its commencement on Jan. 1 2019.
“It sets a new standard in the way we write and interpret the Rules and is central to our efforts to ensure a healthy future for golf. We look forward to continuing that process in the years to come.”
That comes as some reasonable surprise as — though the two events are not directly linked — CBS has owned the broadcasting rights at the Masters for decades. NBC Sports has just grabbed its piece of the Masters pie.
His approach to commentary has drawn the ire of some pros including Tiger Woods who said Chamblee is good “for people who don’t play the game” with a grin at this year’s Players.
NBC earning the rights is a bit ironic when considering the history of Masters broadcast rights. According to Scott Michaux a longtime Augusta Georgia sports writer NBC was once offered the broadcast rights to the Masters but the offer was mistakenly shipped to executives at CBS.
“By providing this opportunity and shining a brighter light on this important segment of the sport we expect role models to emerge who will help inspire a new generation of golfers.”
“I can’t wait for the day we all can live without feeling like we’re different and excluded. A time where we don’t have to come out we can love the way we want to love and not be ashamed. We are all human and equal after all. So I dare you…spread love. Let’s do our part to make this world a better place.”
“I don’t want this to be focused on me. I just want to spread love and acceptance to others who are in a similar situation. If anyone out there is struggling please don’t hesitate to reach out to me. YOU ARE LOVED AND YOU ARE ENOUGH…AS IS EXACTLY AS YOU ARE!
The Augusta National Women’s Amateur will finish on Saturday April 6 — the Saturday prior to Masters Week — with coverage hitting NBC from noon to 3 p.m ET. That day will (likely) be the final round (of three) wrapping the 54-hole tournament one day prior to the annual Drive Chip and Putt National Finals.
Some have even taken their lives because of it. As long as those things are still happening I will continue to do my best to bring more awareness to this issue and to fight for equality.
