Rule of the Month: Making a Stroke
To help encourage prompt pace of play, the Rules now suggest making a stroke in no more than 40 seconds, and even quicker than that for most shots. In making a stroke, it must be free flowing, not anchored, and the ball must be struck with the head of the club. You may use a distance-measuring device to measure distance only, but it must not measure slope or other conditions that may assist you.
