This is a combined AGA/JGAA services group positioned to ensure the highest quality tournament governance under the Rules of Golf managed by the joint Associations.
Golf is essentially a self-regulating game. The players are responsible for knowing the Rules and are expected to play by them. Playing by the Rules requires a properly marked golf course, appropriate local Rules and conditions for play, and Rules of Golf oversight to settle disputed points.
A core function of the USGA is to write and interpret the Rules of Golf in conjunction with our worldwide partner, The R&A.
