As for the best time to play, it is a personal choice. According to the former chief program officer of the National Sleep Foundation, between 9 AM to 11 AM and after 4 PM are the optimum times both mentally and physically based on your Circadian rhythm.
Most golf players love to play when the weather is cool, humidity is low, and there is little to no breeze. Fall would be a perfect time to play golf. If you enjoy being out in the sun, then summer is ideal for you.
Rules of Golf
The rules of golf are a standard set of procedures and regulations in playing the game, written and administered by The R&A and USGA. USGA is the governing body of golf in Mexico and the US, while R&A governs the rest of the world.
The rules cover:
- Decisions on the Rules of Golf
- Local rules as set by the committee of a golf club
- Golf etiquette
- Rules used in competitions
- Rules about the size, shape, and performance of golf equipment
- Rules about golfers with disabilities
The World Handicap System was implemented in 2020, which replaced many different handicapping systems worldwide. Here are all the chapters covered by the Official Rules of Golf according to the R&A and USGA.
The World Handicap System
The R&A and USGA, together with the existing handicapping authorities, developed the World Handicap System (WHS). It was launched in January 2020 to provide golfers with a combined and more comprehensive handicapping system for the first time. It is supposed to give golfers a consistent measure of playing ability wherever they are in the world by calculating handicaps the same way.
One of the main objectives of the WHS is to develop a system that will enable as many golfers as possible to get and maintain a Handicap Complex that they can use globally, whether it’s for competition or just a casual round of golf. It can also be used to show the score that a golfer can potentially achieve in the next game.
Rules of Handicapping
- Purpose and Authorization; Obtaining a Handicap Index
- Scores Acceptable for Handicap Purposes
- Adjustment of Hole Scores
- Submitting a Score
- Handicap Index Calculation
- Course Handicap and Playing Handicap Calculation
- Committee Actions
