At Hireko we make every attempt to make all our models conform to the Rules of Golf. Each of the products that appear with the Tournament Ready logo has been submitted to the USGA to receive a ruling that they do conform to the Rules of Golf.
For the first time, not all the Rules of Golf will apply to all levels of golfers. This is due to stricter rules that will be in place starting Jan. 1, 2010 regarding the grooves of any club that is 25º of loft or more. Therefore we will have two icons to determine the difference of which clubs will be acceptable to play in the various situations.
After Jan 1, 2010, the Condition of Competition requiring clubs to conform will be changed only to those competitions involving expert professional players at the highest level of competition, including the professional tours plus the U.S. Open, U.S. Women’s Open, and the U.S. Senior Open starting with the sectional qualifying. Clubs with the icon Tournament Ready 2010 will be fine to use for these competitions.
Currently conforming clubs manufactured prior to January 1, 2010 may continue to be used in all situations wherein the Condition of Competition is not in effect until at least 2024. For the remaining 99% of golfers who don’t compete at the highest level of competition, those clubs that currently conform may continue to be used to maintain a handicap or post a score. Clubs with the icon Tournament Ready will be fine for these competitions.
