Not many people know this…..

October 27th, 2015

The Rules of Golf 2016 have been revealed this week and, from a link in our lead story today, readers can access a four-and-a half minute introductory video featuring David Richman (R&A) and Thomas Pagel (USGA).

This is the start of a huge printing and distribution effort. The R&A will publish in English a total of 2.3 million copies of the Rules of Golf 2016. The book will be delivered to 96 worldwide destinations as far away as the Falkland Islands. Approximately 900,000 copies will be distributed among 3,630 clubs and societies in Great Britain & Ireland in late October/early November. This is supported by Rolex, whose relationship with The R&A dates back to 1978.

In addition to English, copies of the Rules of Golf are reproduced under licence in 36 languages: Burmese, Cambodian, Chinese (Mandarin), Czech, Danish, Dutch, Estonian, Finnish, French, Georgian, German, Hebrew, Hungarian, Icelandic, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Lao, Latvian, Lithuanian, Mongolian, Norwegian, Persian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, Tamil, Thai, Turkish and Vietnamese. Wherever you are, enjoy the read!
