If I've learned anything over my time playing golf, it's that there are very, very few players who actually know the rules. There are even fewer who actually follow them. I'm fairly well versed on them, but it's so easy to get confused. I mean, many of golf's rules are just plain stupid. They make no sense, so it's hard to remember them.

I think that this book does an excellent job of explaining some of the more difficult rules to remember in the game. I'll admit, when I bought it, I was kind of hoping for something I could keep in my golf bag, but this is just a bit too large for that. For those who are interested, though, the USGA website does sell a handbook for just that. They offer it for free. You just have to pay the shipping.

The reason why I bought this book anyway is because I wanted something that might help me to remember some of the nuances a little bit better. For instance, in stroke play competition, it is not legal to take a break to get shelter from rain unless play is suspended by the committee. In match play, it is legal to do so. The illustration that the book provided made this little nuance very difficult to forget.

So for anyone who plays golf regularly but does not have a rule book, I think this is a good first one to get. Even for a veteran who is looking for something to keep at home to refer to once in a while, this is a good buy. Heck, even someone on the rules committee who needs an official book to make judgments during a tournament will do well with this book. The only negative is simply the fact that it is not the book to lug around in your golf bag unless you're Rodney Dangerfield.

Great book, and easy to understand. Trying to teach my 9 yr. old the rules is hard enough, but this book is going to make it much, much easier.

The illustrations are excellent and help golfers of all levels think about the rules of the game. Much easier to read than the basic Rules of Golf Book.

If you are going to learn the rules, even if just a bit, this book is the one to read. Illustrations help explain in laymans' terms how to proceed if a player is not sure. Remember, the rules are there to help, not hurt. As a PGA GOlf Professional, I give this book to alot of my students and friends so that they can understand the game better and enjoy the game better as well. You never know when you will run into a situation in a friendly match and your opponent breaches a rule and you can nail him on it. It might just save you a few bucks in your Sunday Nassau.

Golf is meant to be fun and i found that my playing partners and I would always argue about specific rules. I picked this up and keep it in my bag and it has helped so much. It is a great feeling knowing that we are all playing by the right rules and when we win, its extra rewarding because we did it the right way. The rules are clearly explained with notes that showcase examples from tour players who have come in conflict with a rule and how it was decided. I recommend this book to beginners to learn the game, and to casual every day players who need to have a definitive source on the course with them.

Bought this for the kids. They love it. Reads well at their level and for adults. Nice illustrations. Amazon Prime shipping made the purchase easier than going to the store.

This is the second edition of this book that I have purchased. It explains the rules of golf with the actual rule, an illustration, a simple explanation, and examples of where the rule was applied to the pros. My friends and I review every page before heading to our state's amateur and senior-amateur tournaments. We also bought a copy to have for our league's use!
