Useless. A waste of money. Written for the American market anyway. Last time i read a book of this standard i was in junior school. No real information contained. i'd rather watch grass grow than read this. Good job it's bonfire night soon, so i can make a contribution.

Brought this book as it was small enough to go into my golf bag pocket. However its note quite detailed enough and I would need to get out a more informed rule book in questionable circumstances.

For beginners and others 15 Nov 2010
By Bob Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Golf is tough to play. The rules of golf are impossible to understand and even harder to remember. The book on the decisions of golf, written to help know how to apply the rules is about three inches thick. Then there is etiquette: that's where you know when to talk, where to stand, what to fix, where to leave your pull cart and where to drive your motorized one. Make a mistake and everything is ruined. It's a wonder anyone plays the game.

I have an autographed copy of Jim Corbett's Pocket Idiot's Guide to Golf Rules & Etiquette. Finally there is an easy way to understand the rules of the game and those elusive bits on how to enjoy the game without stepping on any toes. The book fits into a golf bag and is organized to make it easy to quickly research what you need to know. It also includes a detachable quick reference guide for common situations. It is written in a clear light hearted style. There is an appendix and index.

The book has all you need to know in a form that makes learning easy and enjoyable. It's good for every golfer and I recommend it highly. However, as one reviewer noted, it may be best for newer players and those who want a more enjoyable way to know how to apply the rules than the USGA rulebook. This is a book people will actually read.

For the inconsiderate idiot in your golf group 12 Jun 2013
By Techie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Some golfers just don't understand that when another golfer is about to strike the ball, be it a driver, an iron or even a putt, it is incumbent on everyone's enjoyment of the game to follow certain basic rules of golf etiquette. Many times, a golfer will be invited to play as part of your group because he or she is a co-worker, a friend, a business acquaintance, or some other reason, and the sad truth becomes quickly apparent if he or she is "one of those" golfers. You know the ones- they dance around on the green when you're about to putt, stand directly behind your backswing when you're driving, and chatter incessantly at all the wrong moments.

Usually one must go to a bowling alley to find someone that fits the Webster's definition of rude and inconsiderate- but you will find these rubes on the golf links as well, with-or-without alcohol adding fuel to the fire. This little guidebook is a handy way of 'dropping the hint' to the clueless soul that he or she is destroying the joy of golf - everyone's favorite game of shared pain!

I purchased this for a problematic golfing buddy - and I think it helped a little bit. Of course, you don't have to spend money on a booklet like this - you can simply clock the guy with your wedge and claim later you failed to see him in your backswing...

But I'm just sayin'....

Perfect. The guide stays in my bag and I reference the handy pullout card (I lamenated it) all the time. Cheers
good buy 3 May 2013
By Pen Name - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book gives you all the basic rules to play golf the way it was intended to be played. No more, " does it count when I swing and miss" or what if I land on the other fairway" . It has the answers to these questions and so many more. I do recommend this book.

It is a very fun way to introduce golf rules to our 14 year old grandson for the first time.
