TGC 2019 Penalties

I get this question a lot! What are the penalty percentages & shortcuts for TGC 2019 (The Golf Club 2019). I figured it would be useful to post this information on my website so I can put the link in the description of videos for my viewers.

The Distance Penalties are very important to understand. First off you have penalties in TGC 2019 with specific percentages based on the bunker location. If you are in a bunker that is further than 40 yards from the green then you will incur a 7% distance penalty for that shot. But, if you are in a bunker within 40 yards plan on a 40% distance penalty!

When playing out of the rough it is easy to remember because the percentages are similar. For lies in the light rough you will have a 7% penalty and heavy rough will be 14%
