Reviews

"The Rules of Golf in Plain English is exactly what its title promises. . . . I recommend it heartily." -- Paul McNamera, Volunteer Rules Official for Southern California PGA "The Rules of Golf in Plain English doesn''t take shortcuts, but is written to make the rules clearer to readers. A wonderful teaching aid." -- Jamie Conkling, PGA Tour Rules official "The Rules of Golf in Plain English is a valuable tool for anyone with an interest in the Rules of Golf . . . . Clear, useful, and very authoritative." -- David Fay, Executive Director, United States Golf Association ""The Rules of Golf in Plain English" is a valuable tool for anyone with an interest in the Rules of Golf . . . . Clear, useful, and very authoritative." --David Fay, Executive Director, United States Golf Association ""The Rules of Golf in Plain English" doesn't take shortcuts, but is written to make the rules clearer to readers. A wonderful teaching aid." --Jamie Conkling, PGA Tour Rules official ""The Rules of Golf in Plain English" is exactly what its title promises. . . . I recommend it heartily." --Paul McNamera, Volunteer Rules Official for Southern California PGA "It's a shame that this book is even necessary, but it sure beats reading the official rules of golf." --Craig Smith"Seattle Times" (05/11/2004) "Any golfer who has thumbed through the Rules of Golf knows it's as readable as the federal tax code. So dense and impenetrable are the rules that an entire cottage industry of books exists to explain how to proceed. . . . The latest book is "The Rules of Golf in Plain English." As unlikely as it might seem, the coauthors are a couple of Texas lawyers, Bryan Garner and Jeff Kuhn, who met when Kuhn enrolled in a seminar Garner was teaching on how to write legal briefs that weren't full of legalese. . . . Among those praising their efforts are David Fey, executive director of the USGA, and Jamie Conkling, a PGA Tour rules official." --Joe Logan"Philadelphia Inquirer" (04/25/2004) "Lee Trevino once said that the Rules of Golf should sit inside a matchbook. If the situation wasn't covered there, you'd add a stroke and keep playing. Unfortunately, that's not the case. Today's rule book is as big as ever and the decisions regarding those rules could fill a small phone book. To the rescue comes "The Rules of Golf in Plain English." Authors Jeffrey Kuhn, a volunteer USGA rules official, and Bryan Garner, an English language and usage expert, with permission from the USGA have tried to put the rules in simpler terms and words that are more understandable. They've also included changes made this year that will be in effect until 2007. The book is handy in size and easily fits in a golf bag." --George Sweda"Cleveland Plain Dealer" (04/26/2004) "It''s a shame that this book is even necessary, but it sure beats reading the official rules of golf."--Craig Smith"Seattle Times" (05/11/2004) ""The Rules of Golf in Plain English" doesn''t take shortcuts, but is written to make the rules clearer to readers. A wonderful teaching aid."--Jamie Conkling, PGA Tour Rules official
