I can’t even count anymore the amount of times that while playing, I do not know the exact ruling of something. The outcome usually involves me guessing, and then later on looking it up only to realize that I was completely wrong and penalized myself too much or too little. (usually the latter) Well, the folks at Golf Rules Made Easy may have just found the solution to my problem.
This company has created the solution to this issue.
A small little user-friendly booklet, written in easy-to-understand English, is organized into eight sections, just as a course is layed out, among them â€œTee,” â€œFairway and Rough”, â€œBunker,” â€œWater Hazard” and â€œGreen.” This must-have guide belongs in every golfer’s bag because its numerous relief procedures help save strokes and prevent arguments among players. In fact, the especially innovative overview chart on the last page answers 80 percent of golfers questions without even having to flip open the booklet!
â€œThe fact is, most golfers, including many tour professionals, don’t have a thorough knowledge of all of the Rules of Golf, other than the basics,” says Yves C. Ton-That, â€œGolf Rules Quick Reference 2008-2011″ author and an international rules official for more than 10 years. â€œThe ‘Golf Rules Quick Reference’ provides quick answers to rules questions thanks to its 170 illustrations and easy-to-understand language instead of dry, legal verbiage nobody understands. Storing ‘Golf Rules Quick Reference’ in your golf bag will enable you to avoid embarrassment and arguments, and will also allow you to take full advantage of the various relief procedures and free drops you weren’t aware of before.”
From my personal use, I really liked this booklet. It is small enough to fit into almost any pocket in your bag. But the real upside for me, was that because of the way it is organized with tabs and pictures, you can find the ruling and play accordingly without holding up anyone behind you. I urge each person to pick one of these up.
