Tired of trekking over to the golf course with a heavy, yet handy, book of rules? Well, now you don't have to.
USGA, based in Far Hills, launched a free enhanced version of its Rules of Golf mobile application for iOS and Android devices.
The application, available on the USGA website, features a smart-search capability that connects users to the Rules information that is contained in the most recent versions of the Rules of Golf and the Decisions on the Rules of Golf books.
Get it fast, though. Not every aspect of the application will be free for long.
Beginning April 1, the Decisions on the Rules of Golf book portion of the application will become an in-app purchase.
"The book provides real examples in a question and answer format," said Jeff Altstadter, USGA Media Relations Director, he added, "mobile users will be able to get more detailed information in one place."
