Howard J. Meditz con Get a Grip on the 2019 Rules of Golf: The fastest way to understand and remember golf's new rules
The 2019 rules bring many welcome changes. In "Get a Grip," an experienced referee and golf writer makes it easy to learn what’s new without having to re-read and re-study everything you already know. "Get a Grip" is the best way for a player to learn and remember the dozens of changes embedded in the 2019 rules of golf. Since it concentrates just on the differences between the new rules and the previous 2016 rules, it’s much shorter and simpler than even the "Player’s Edition of the Rules of Golf," the most abbreviated of the three new official rulebooks. (The print version of "Get a Grip" is similar in size to the "Player’s Edition," and can be easily kept alongside it in a golf bag.) At its core, "Get a Grip’s" checklist of new things you may now do legally and old things you may no longer do provides the easiest way to commit the new rules to memory — reading it is the fastest, most pain-free way get back out there and play with confidence.
