*Proper attire
*Playing through
*Playing with Strangers
*And much more

All the latest advances are taken into account: satellite-based yardage systems, alternative spikes, and cell phones. Its handy size and useful photos and daigram make Golf Etiquette the perfect guide for on-the-fly tips and rules.

REVIEWS

Praise for Golf Etiquette

"If every golfer read this book, it would make the golf professional's job that much easier."
--Harvey Penick, author of Harvey Penick's Little Red Book

"This book is long overdue. Must reading."
--Tom Kite

"Golf Etiquette should be on every golfer's bookshelf."
--Ben Crenshaw

"The first and last word on how properly to behave on and off the golf course."
--Paul Harvey

"In the past I've been known to play 36 and 54 holes a day, and know the meaning of pace of play. This book teaches golfers how to do it: when to walk, when to talk, and how to keep up, how to be a more enjoyable partner. Slow play wouldn't be the problem it's become if everyone read this book."
--Darrell Royal, Member of the National Football Hall of Fame coached the University of Texas Longhorns to 11 Southwest Conference championships, three national titles and 16 bowl appearances.
