I had been meaning to check in on the latest changes to the Rules of Golf after seeing an article last fall that there would be a revision and new printing. Browsing through a few articles on the internet, I found out that with this revision, all of the different golf associations including the R&A and the USGA will be using 1 main document with the same formatting throughout, with the main difference being appropriate translations into different languages.
It was off to the USGA web site to find out what's important to know about this new revision. I found a "Complete Rules of Golf" document dated January 2012 and I clicked on it. It was 215 pages in PDF form!! WHOA! (don't believe me, check this out! http://www.usga.org/uploadedFiles/USGAHome/rules/CompleteROGbook.pdf )
