Golf Channel introduces 'Relaxed Rules' for Fun Golf

Golf Channel has recently introduced its "Relaxed Rules" series, designed to help golfers have more fun when playing.  The idea is to welcome new golfers by making learning the game less intimidating while promoting a fun side to the rules including:

  1. Maximum score is double par
  2. Penalties are all one stroke
  3. Limit ball search to 2 minutes
  4. Improve unfortunate lies
  5. Conceded putts allowed
  6. No equipment restrictions
  7. Use common sense
These seven rules promoted by Golf Channel for amateur golfers are likely to make the game more fun and take less time.  golfchannel
