 The R&A has launched an official Rule App for the Apple iPhone, iPad and iTouch. It is available to download now for free from the iTunes App Store.

The Official Rules App allows the user to quickly find information about all aspects of the laws of the game from etiquette, through a summary of the fundamental Rules, to the complete Rules of Golf (2008 – 2011).

“The Rules App is a fantastic reference tool that allows you to find any Rules information you might require, on the move,” said David Rickman, The R&A’s Director of Rules and Equipment Standards. “It is useful for any golfer or official from those who are just starting to play, to those officiating at higher levels of golf.”

The Quick Guide to the Rules explains how a player should proceed in a number of frequently occurring Rules scenarios. Designed for easy reference, the Guide contains numerous images, diagrams and video footage.

Also included is a guide to the essential etiquette of the game, in which two-time Open Champion Padraig Harrington explains pace of play, care of the course, and consideration for other golf course users.

The complete Rules of Golf (2008-2011) can be referenced in the application. Further features include an interactive Rules quiz.
