Formed in 1754, the R&A has played a major role in the development of the game, and in 1897, at the suggestion of the leading clubs the governing authority on the Rules of Golf. Since then over 100 countries have been granted affiliation to it.

With everything there is to know about the game, this indispensable guide is like having a golf pro by your side at all times. Where better than an official publication of the United States Golf Association to learn the rules of golf? Only here you will find the updated complete regulations as revised in 2003 and more than 100 illustrations designed to make understanding them even easier. Best of all, there's a particular emphasis on those situations that always seem to cause difficulty for golfers of all skill levels. Obstructions, bunkers, out of bounds, lost balls, unplayable balls, water hazards, loose impediments, casual waters--this is just some of what you'll find. There are also explanations of when and how you can legally improve your lie, winter rules, and much more. Whether you're engaged in stroke play or match play, in a friendly foursome or fighting for your club championship, a knowledge of the rules will increase your enjoyment of the game--and maybe even take a few strokes off your score.
