Golf rules and etiquette are two of the most intimidating aspects of the game for newcomers to the sport. They're also two of the most important things beginning players need to learn. The rules are numerous and sometimes quite complex, and the official USGA rule book offers little help with its legalese and one-size-fits-all approach. As for etiquette, golf is unique in the extent to which all players, regardless of experience, are expected to demonstrate an understanding of etiquette as soon as they start to play. The Pocket Idiot's Guide to Golf Rules and Etiquetteoffers relief from the intimidation new golfers might otherwise feel. From dressing properly and loading up the golf bag through putting the final ball on the 18th green, author Jim Corbett (nationally recognized as "Mr. Golf Etiquette") covers all the do's and don'ts, and even lets readers know which rules are safe to bend when playing with friends.
