Another OBB (oldbogeyb!tch) against the Rules?
If the general population of casual golfers can't handle them, or choose not to, then just perhaps they are needlessly complex. They still play their golf, but not according to the official Rules. The problem then is that not everyone is using the same standard.
I find I often have to correct the interpretation of 'remembered' rules by people who've been playing for decades. They're not stupid, have had ample time to learn them, but still don't know what's expected.
Can you experts suggest another solution to the problem?
