It is a Rule book, not merely a summary or a “quick guide.” It gives the same answers found in the full edition of the Rules of Golf.  Less frequently occurring situations are not included but advise the player that those answers are available in the full Rules of Golf book. USGA sales are limited to customers in the U.S., its territories and Mexico in the English language. All others must contact The R&A at Through the continued support of Rolex, a longstanding partner of the USGA and the Rules of Golf, we are able to offer these books in exchange for a minimal shipping-and-handling charge. These books are not to be resold by recipient. Orders are limited to a maximum of two (2) books per order. Paperback, 168 pages.  (Please be advised that as part of their Member benefits, all current USGA Members and Member Clubs will receive their complimentary Players Edition of the Rules of Golf in their renewal packages – throughout 2019.)
