Ratings and Reviews
As a rules official this is my number one source while on the course. The new hyperlinks are extremely useful. Much improved search functionality. Wish list: ability to listen to the content while driving, especially the definitions. Second, PLEASE allow use for test. Haven’t used my books hardly at all this summer. Great resource.
I am a rules official for a PGA Section and frequently use this app because it lets yo move between references with a simple touch and then you can go back to where you were with another touch.
I wish it also had a way to listen in audio.
This app contains the full text of the USGA / R&A rules, organized to quickly access the rule for any situation on the course. Very handy and easy to use. I also recommend the optional companion "Decisions" module, which aids in the interpretation of the rules and how they are applied.
