Decisions on the Rules of Golf
Whilst many claim to know the Rules of Golf, the fact is that every year golf's governing bodies receive thousands of inquiries about how to apply these Rules to the actual game. Decisions on the Rules of Golf 2012 clarifies any ambiguity that might arise from the Rules and allows you to correctly interpret the complete Rules of golf, including all new and revised decisions made by the R&A's Rules Committee and the USGA that come into effect in 2012. The level of detail is staggering, covering everything from using bottled water to gauge a slope to what to do when your ball lands on a crawfish mound. Whether in competition or everyday play, this book provides you with the necessary guidance to impartially apply the Rules in any situation encountered on the golf course.
