999 Questions on the Rules of Golf

So how much fun can learning the Rules of Golf be? If you have played just a little bit of golf, surely someone has ungraciously shoved the Rule Book in front of your face and with proper golf snobbery and exclaimed, “You need to read this!” You faithfully march into the Golf Shop, plop down your two bucks for the USGA's The Rules of Golf and head onto the patio for a beer and a little light reading. At first glance the task of reading through this somewhat diminutive book (182 pages) does not seem so daunting. But after you get past the section on Etiquette (pages 1-4) and begin to go through the pages on Definitions your suspicions begin to be aroused that this may not be the most reader-friendly book you have ever encountered.

You quickly discover that just reading through this book will not gain you a working knowledge of the rules. There must be another way. Surely golfers know some trick to attaining a knowledge of the rules that are actually applicable on the golf course.

Well, there's good news and bad news.

First the bad news: there is no gimmick. The book that contains the Rules of Golf is a conundrum, the ultimate brain-teaser. You learn by study and experience.

Now the good news: Eye On Golf is able to recommend one of the best volumes on the Rules of Golf – 999 Questions On the Rules of Golf by Barry Rhodes – for your rules meditative pleasure. We know the title will not make you think it's a page turner. It's hard to make the title of any rules book sound dynamic or exciting. But once you open this gem you will have some fun with the rules.

Mr. Rhodes has divided his book into three sections of 333 questions (hence the number 999 in the title) separated primarily by difficulty. Each of the three sections contains a mix of True/False, Open Answer and Multiple Choice. The structure of this volume makes the learning easy. Each of the 999 questions is followed immediately by the answer AND a note of explanation which reinforces the correct ruling and enhances the learning experience.

As you might expect, when you move from section to section, the questions become more difficult. Section 1 contains simple questions that should be general knowledge for every golfer. In Section 2 the questions become a bit more involved and difficult. Mr. Rhodes calls these “...questions relevant to both casual golfers and Golf Club members. The final section hits you with the big rules hammer – questions for those seeking to expand their knowledge of the Rules. These questions will not only have you reaching for that Rules of Golf, but also the gigantic Decisions of the Rules of Golf.

Rhodes is a trained accountant who has become a rules junkie. He is the first person to attain a score of 100% on the public Advanced Rules of Golf Course exam sponsored by the European PGA. Mr. Rhodes addiction to the rules of our game has become our blessing.

Get this one and put a little fun into learning the Rules of Golf.

The basic rules of golf, in particular the first 'primary' section you eluded to, should be made mandatory reading for handicap tests. Maybe this way high handicappers develop a sense of 'golf spirit' rather than being ignorant of the basic rules.

[url=]sac longchamp[/url] A couple of other things. Robert, I know you've already asked Lucasfilm about when they'll finally release Willow on bluray (with a new documentary along with all of the deleted scenes of course, but I digress as usual!) but I'm just saying that when they finally do, I'll be one happy man! Anyway, there's another movie that I think needs to be officially released or re-released on bluray and that's Superman the Movie! Believe it or not there were Women Mulberry Somerset Leather Tote Bag Brown,New Mulberry handbags from mulberry factory shop 100% guarantee. still many scenes (at least 35 minutes) that were cut from the North American version but were included in foreign markets in a TV version of the movie called the "Salkind International Extended Cut."

I've been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It's pretty worth
enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more
useful than ever before.
