At it’s core, golf is a simple sport, but it’s made a lot wackier with all the rules that the game implements. The rules are somewhat universal as each course will have some different rules pertaining to the uniqueness of their landscape, and golfers for the most part have to be in tune with the rules and penalize themselves or else it will cost them more strokes at the end of the round. Heck, we’ve even seen players get penalized these days from spectators who were watching the match on their televisions.
We’ve given you the weirdest rules in sports, now here are the weirdest rules in golf.
Some of these are going to sound made up, but we assure you they’re not. You can even check in the USGA’s 600-page rule book if you want.
