Rules of the Week

The Mississippi Golf Association sends an email on the Monday of every week with a Rules question. On the following Monday the answer to the past week is given and a new question is asked. In case you would like to review past questions, questions and answers for the year will be posted here on the website. Hopefully this will help you prepare for your upcoming tournament season! Best of luck!
