About Barry Rhodes and his eBook, 999 Updated Questions on the Rules of Golf

Although I qualified as a Chartered Accountant I spent most of my career in senior sales, marketing and management roles within the information and communication technology (ICT) sector. I am an enthusiastic, high handicap golfer who developed an interest, then a fascination, and now a passion for understanding the Rules of Golf. I have been resident in Dublin, Ireland, for 35 years and am an active member of Milltown Golf Club.

My relationship with the Rules began in 2000 with my participation in the Inter-Club Rules of Golf quiz competitions for Golf Clubs in Great Britain and Ireland, supported by the Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews. I then progressed to writing articles, running quizzes and delivering presentations on the Rules at various Golf Club and corporate functions. In March 2008, I was the first person to achieve a 100% correct mark on the public Advanced Rules of Golf Course examination, run by the Professional Golfers Association (PGA) in their headquarters at The Belfry, West Midlands, UK.

Also in 2008, I commenced writing my weekly web blog, which is increasingly popular amongst golfers of all abilities, as it is the only source on the web that is totally dedicated to miscellaneous content on the Rules of Golf. A year after he started to blog, my first book, ‘999 Questions on the Rules of Golf’, was published in the UK and has now been sold in over 50 countries. I then launched 'Rhodes Rules School', a series of weekly emails posing questions based around photographs of Rules incidents that may be encountered by golfers whilst on the course. I am also a guest contributor on several international golfing web sites.

I am pleased to confirm that my book, previously only available as a print publication, is now available as a downloadable eBook, '999 Updated Questions on the Rules of Golf 2012-2015'. It is available as both a .pdf file (computers) and as a Mobipocket file (Kindle, iPad, Blackberry, smart phone or other compatible device). I can confirm that all the questions and answers have been updated to accurately reflect the amendments that became effective on 1st January 2012.

If you are not familiar with my book, first published in 2009, here is a short overview:

  • '999 Updated Questions on the Rules of Golf 2012 – 2015' is an eBook to help golfers of all abilities to enjoy their sport more, improve their scores and make the right decisions on the course.Most golfers would like to know the Rules of Golf better. ‘999 Updated Questions on the Rules of Golf 2012 – 2015’ is the smart way to learn the Rules because it is easy to dip in and out of, contains interesting scenarios, many of which readers will recognise and relate to, and the format will appeal to the competitive side of most golfers. There are questions, answers and most importantly, explanations to the myriad situations that occur on the course that golfers may encounter. Answers are conveniently located immediately beneath each question and are directly referenced to the applicable Rule of Golf, the Decision on the Rule, or the appropriate Definition. The questions are tiered into three knowledge levels; there are 333 simple questions that every golfer should be familiar with; there are 333 more difficult questions relevant to both casual golfers and Golf Club members; and there are 333 advanced questions for those seeing to expand their knowledge of the Rules. For variety, the questions are further subdivided into three formats; true or false, open answer and multiple choice. A detailed index provides an easy and convenient way for readers to reference specific situations as they arise. There are multiple questions on every one of the 126 sub-sections to the 34 Rules of Golf, all of them updated for the amendments that became effective from 1st January 2012.

My mission is that this book will assist all golfers, whatever their level of ability, to enjoy their sport more, improve their scores and help preserve the integrity of the fantastic game of Golf.
