Today, USGA and the R&A published two new Rules books: “The Player’s Edition of the Rules of Golf” and “The Official Guide to The Rules of Golf”!
Status of the three publications from USGA and the R&A thus is:
- The Rules book. The Rules book is now available in a digital version (since 1st of March 2018 it has been available in a PDF-version, but now it is available as a “look-up-version”). You can order it in a printed version on USGA’s website as of today, but not until October 1st on The R&A’s website.
- The Player’s Edition. This book was published digitally today, and is available here. The Player’s Edition is a shortened version of the Rules book, and contains furthermore many drawings, explanations etc., so that it should be much easier to read. You can order it in a printed version on USGA’s website as of today, but not until October 1st on The R&A’s website.
- “The Official Guide”. This book was published digitally today, and is available here. The Official Guide is a kind of the new “Decisionsbook”, and contains a number of interpretations of the Rules, and also contains Committee Procedures etc. It can be ordered in a printed version as of November 1st.
You can read more about it here.
Furthermore a new app has been available today, which can be downloaded to both Android and iOS – you can read about it here.
Since The Official Guide has now been published, I can now finish writing my books, making of Rules videos, slideshows etc…. so that is really great! Busy and interesting times ahead!
