Not surprisingly, pro golfers near and far had opinions to share about the USGA/R&A's proposed rules changes, which would go into effect in 2019. Tiger Woods said that the new rules would benefit the game, Ian Poulter applauded the modern changes (but still thinks there is work to be done), and Daniel Berger was unsure about some of the tweaks. To read more about the proposed changes, check out our coverage of the 9 things you need to know and what the changes really mean.
I hope the @RandA & @USGA now stop these books we can buy. Too much time is wasted trying to work out the line of the putt. Speed up play. pic.twitter.com/PEk0YlicIJ — Ian Poulter (@IanJamesPoulter) March 1, 2017
Maybe there should be professional rules and amateur rules because I'm not getting a good vibe about some of these proposed changes — Daniel Berger (@DanielBerger59) March 1, 2017
Absolutely. It won't happen right away but making the rules easier to understand and friendlier to the average player will add to our sport https://t.co/Q9u5B8BpSq — Billy Hurley III (@BillyHurley3) March 1, 2017
I think the changes are moving the right direction for golf, but I think professional golf should have its own book — Graham DeLaet (@GrahamDeLaet) March 1, 2017
