Origines et Evolutions
First written code of rules. Rule 1 stated: "You must tee your ball within a club's length of the hole."
With the introduction of the gutta percha ball a new rule provided that if a ball broke up in flight another ball could be dropped without penalty where the largest piece was found
Time allowed in searching for a ball reduced from 10 to five minutes.
Formation of the R&A Rules of Golf Committee.
Limits on the form and make of clubs applied for the first time.
Restrictions on the size and weight of golf balls imposed in an effort to limit the distance they would travel.
Steel shafts became legal for the first time.
Only 14 clubs to be carried from this date.
To stop the spread of slow play, committees were empowered to disqualify players who unduly delayed others. Modified in 1952 to loss of hole or two-stroke penalty, with disqualification for repeated offences.
First world code agreed between R&A and USGA. Stymie abolished - players no longer forced to chip over an opponent's ball coming to rest between their ball and the hole in match play.
Distance measuring devices banned.
Ball no longer dropped over the player's shoulder, but at arm's length and at shoulder height.
The 1.68-inch ball becomes the only legal ball, marking the demise of the 1.62 British ball.
