I am communicating with members of my Club in a regular Newsletter. I like to reference The Player's Edition. I can use material from the R and A and USGA on the new Rules. That is great. I do select material from that.
Things I have used include finding Nearest Point of Relief.
The Ruling Bodies releases are limiting, too

My topic for the current Newsletter is Responsibilities of Markers and Players. Attention drawn to the limited responsibility of Markers and the broader responsibility of all Players to protect other players in the stroke competition. (See 2019, 20.1c clause 2. re the broader responsibility).
