Overview:The Rules of Golf in Plain English: Second Edition - The cry for the simplification of the Rules of Golf is a stock - in - trade of the journalist during the winter months. Countless words on the subject have been poured out to an ever - tolerant public, but still the long - sought simplification does not come. Henry Longhurst, 1937 The hopes of renowned writer and golfer Henry Longhurst and millions of golfers before and after him have finally been realized. In The Rules of Golf in Plain English, Bryan A. Garner, American English language and usage expert, and Jeffrey S. Kuhn, volunteer USGA rules official, have translated the knotty Rules with the encouragement and permission of the United States Golf Association. The result is a modern, readable version that offers, for the first time, clear guidance to both amateurs and professionals. Based on a 338 - word set of thirteen rules written in 1744, the official Rules have grown, over two and a half centuries, to 40,000 words. Numerous contributors and a complex revision process have rendered these Rules so opaque and stylistically inconsistent that a companion volume's the 600 - page Decisions on the Rules of Golf has been published to help golfers navigate them. Both lawyers and avid golfers, Kuhn and Garner recognized the difficulties that the language of the Rules of Golf created, especially in a sport that expects players to call penalties on themselves. By reworking the Rules line by line, word by word, they have produced an accessible resource that no golfer from the duffer to the pro should be without.
