and Mick, it's two drops where it rolls more than 2 club lengths or closer to the hole before you place it on the spot that it first struck the course on your second drop. 

 

And it stands to reason that I has good handicap understanding of the rules because I've played about 30 times in the last 4 years or so. 

seriously, who are you kidding!
you haven't played that many times

On getting better at the Rules.
For some but not many I think, having a steady reading program works if accompanied by plenty of games and practical incidents.
I think looking at any videos that come along really helps.
Ian thinking another way that could work is to ask a Rules savvy person at your Club to give you 15 to 30 minutes of Rules demos.
Take a couple of clubs and simulate situations.
Good starting point would be taking relief from paths, wrong putting green, GUR.

Some people play forever and can't get below 20.

 

Wouldn't it stand to reason that they would also be in the same boat?

 

Handicap bears no relationship to understanding the rules.

Some people are thicker than others.

Some people are more skilled than others.

 

But generalisations are fun.

You're keen languid !  I'd just tell them to RTFM - the books are free.

 

This gets back to the argument that new members should have to pass a rules test before being admitted to the club.  Or they could just simplify the rules so that everybody can readily learn and understand them all. Then there'd be no problem.

Funny thing is the GUR was clearly marked with DZ box clearly painted with arrow pointing back or front to drop zone. Pretty clear

Questions were asked due to me asking a more experienced player of different situation applying to this rule.

I assume that is how we all would learn.

Some countries have Clubs that require new members pass a basic Rules test before being allowed to enter competition. Netherlands is one I think.
Rules are being simplified.
However the problems of comprehension and apathy will persist.

This works if the experienced player actually Knows the rules, Not just thinks he does.Many players learn incorrect rules by listening to other players.

Guess that is why we ask these sort of questions on a public forum to get to know the rules better...

Provided you get accurate answers and not just what some peanut thinks might be the answer.

I resemble that remark.

I have had to read and understand heavy technical legislation for my work over the years, but find the format and structure of the 'rules of golf' by far the worst of anything.

I've tried several times, but, it's just sh.it format.

And.

Golf is a hobby not my profession. I'd rather play.

But.

Accept, I should know.

Key for me, is asking about the rules isn't a penalty.

And.

Social.

Some old blokes really get off on giving younger golfers lessons in the rules. It's a good discussion topic back at the 19th.

If it costs me a shot here or there, so what. My sh.it swing does far worse. I'd rather get the swing right, chip close and putter working than be able to recite the rules of golf.
