Brian Harman's weapon? A putter from 2016

Impressive winner of The Open with a six-stroke lead, Brian Harman is not a very good client for the marketing teams of major equipment manufacturers. In general, he remains very attached to his clubs for a long time and rarely changes the composition of his bag.

His putter, undoubtedly his secret weapon to win last weekend at Hoylake, is a model dating back several years. It was undeniably putter in hand that Brian Harman forged his victory last week at Hoylake in the last major of the season Indeed, according to a very interesting statistic, the points won on the rest of the field by the American left-hander were 62% on the greens!

They are jointly written and maintained by the Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews, the governing body for golf worldwide, outside of the United States and Mexico, which are governed by the United States Golf Association.

An expert commission made up of members of the R&A and USGA, oversees and refines the rules every four years. The latest revision has been in force since January 1, 2016. Changes to the rules of golf generally fall into two main categories: those that improve understanding and those that in certain cases reduce penalties to ensure balance.

The rule book, entitled "Rules of Golf", is published on a regular basis and also includes rules governing amateur status. In Italy it is up to Federgolf to supervise the competitions by enforcing the rules issued by the R & A, checking that these rules are observed by the Clubs, Associations and their members and manages the resulting sporting justice, protecting their interests abroad.
