Rules, Rules & More Rules

It seems every week a new golf rules infraction is highlighted on our television screens. Last year, we witnessed the USGA debacles at both the Men’s and Women’s U.S. Opens.

Golf Takes TOO MUCH TIME!!

Golf Takes TOO MUCH TIME!!

About Fred Altvater:

I admit it – I am a golfaholic, as well as a teaching professional. I have enjoyed playing the grand game of golf for over 40 years. In addition to playing, I find teaching golf very rewarding – I love to see students when they finally hit that great shot, make the long put, chip in or kill that long drive. - See more at: Toledo Ohio Golf Lessons - About Fred
