I really enjoyed this book and sent it to several of my friends (golfers all) to read. They all enjoyed as much as I did.
It's written in the same basic style as "The Official Rules of Golf", but they use rules that you and I play by. The scary thing is that I have seen every rule in this book actually applied on the golf course! Not by myself, of course, but by others.
If you enjoy golf, and have ever wanted to play a ball that you found in the rough that was "close enough" to the one you couldn't find, you'll get a kick out of this book.

This book takes everything you do with your friends that breaks the rules of golf and makes it hilariously legal. Written just like the USGA's manual and in golf legalese its a must have for anyone that enjoys golf. It includes such highlights as the Agreement to Re-tee or "Mass Mulligan", Temporary Insanity or "John Daly", and other such rules as Nonchalant Putts or "Tap-tap-tap-in and Mittsie". If you want a book that will make you laugh about golf, this is it!!!

I love Golf. It's the Rules I don't get. I mean none of us are Tiger Woods ... After 8 strokes just pick the ball up. Who cares who closest to the hole , Just putt the ball. That said ,The Official Exceptions to the Rules of Golf is a book made for the way I play golf. If more people follow these rules maybe I could get a round in in less than 3 hours!
