DALLAS – The Texas Golf Association will conduct a series of educational seminars on the modernized USGA Rules of Golf in October and November for TGA Volunteers and members of the North and South Texas PGA Sections.
To be held in Houston, Dallas and the Hill Country, these new Rules sessions will take place prior to the PGA/USGA Rules School dates for Dallas on Nov. 16-19.
The intent of the TGA Rules Seminars is to develop an understanding of the major changes of the Rules of Golf that will go into effect Jan. 1, 2019. The program will be comprised of classroom lectures through the use of Microsoft Power Point slide presentations.
Following the lecture, attendees will have the opportunity to become certified on the new Rules of Golf. The TGA has the ability to administer the 80-question advanced exam. By achieving a score of 70 out of 80 or higher, individuals will earn the “Advanced” Rules Certification with the PGA and USGA.
The first TGA Rules Seminar is scheduled for Oct. 8 in Houston. Dates for sessions in Dallas and the Hill Country, as well as more details, will follow soon. Please visit txga.org to keep updated.
