Decisions on the Rules of Golf App: Out Now

decisionsDecisions on the Rules of Golf is published every two years and is the official interpretation of the Rules of Golf from The R&A. It provides clear answers to practical problems encountered when playing golf. Now, for the first time, the correct Decision is at your fingertips thanks to this simple to use App for the iPhone and iPad.

The App contains the 2012-2015 Rules of Golf together with over 1200 Decisions, many based on actual incidents, and numerous videos and imagery illustrating key Rules.  Following a clear question and answer format, the Decisions App will assist in the quick resolution of Rules problems, both simple and complicated. Everything from the order of play when two balls are lost in a water hazard, to what to do when your ball is near a dangerous rattlesnake!

“The R&A has produced a Rules of Golf App since 2010 and it has proved to be tremendously popular,” said David Rickman (Executive Director – Rules and Equipment Standards).

“The Decisions book has been the essential reference document for referees and club administrators throughout the game for many years and so we are now delighted to make the Decisions available in the form of an App, just in time for the 2012 Open. We believe that it complements our existing free App perfectly and offers the search functions and portability that is demanded by those that are involved in refereeing and golf administration, but is equally useful for players at any level of the game.”

From club golfers to referees, no one who takes the game and its Rules seriously can afford to be without the new Decisions on the Rules of Golf App.
