Billy Horschel thinks this controversial rule should be changed

Billy Horschel

A simplified, streamlined Rules of Golf will come into effect from January 1 – but former FedEx Cup champion Billy Horschel believes there’s one glaring omission. 

The new laws, originally unveiled by the R&A and USGA in March, include the removal of a penalty for a double hit and changes to the dropping procedure, with the focus on making the game easier to understand and more attractive and accessible for newcomers. 

• WIN PRIZES EVERY DAY WITH THE BUNKERED ADVENT CALENDAR

• HURRY - Time running out to get free golf with the bunkered subs offer

However, whilst they have been broadly welcomed by most in the game, world No.35 Horschel is disappointed that one particular change that hasn’t been made, as he explained on Twitter.
