1.0 out of 5 stars don't waste your money September 16, 2001
By A Customer
This book was a complete waste of money. I learned nothing that I didn't already know. The author also has a preachy, holier than thou style that is extremely grating. I was embarassed to have spend good money on this book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Rules light December 18, 2007
This book contains dated material. As of january 1, 2008 the Rules and the decisions of golf have been substantial changes. All of then good and many of them will come into play every day. Also, the author references 5 dumest interpretations and goes on to state that Rules officials should not be so strict in interpreting the Rules. While that may be a nice thought, the realities are that the writers of the Rules (The USGA and The R&A) put enormous thought into the way the rules are written so that Officials in the field can uniformly interpret the rules. The Officials have no room for error in ensuring that all players are playing by the same rules and playing on a level playing field. It is an interesting book, just don't make any wagers based on what you read inside. If you really want to understand the rules purchase the publication: Decisions on the Rules of Golf from the USGA.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Golf Claps" August 10, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Golf is an odd bird. I personally took up golf to "Hang in there" with my boss and salespersons from work. Still, it seems is has as many unwritten rules as it does written rules.

This book is a quick-n-dirty guide that covers the PGA written protocols, as well as the house-rules that you friends may or may not throw out during your four-man-scramble. All this, written in the "dummies talk" that's both easy to follow and easy to retain.

A great tool for the newbie golfer trying to fit in with the "big boys" as well as the pro golfer looking to broaden and sharpen their understanding of this great game. Well worth the price!
