The R&A and the Royal Spanish Golf Federation have launched a Spanish language Rules of Golf app for iPad and iPhone. The app includes video footage of two of Spain’s top female professionals, Belen Mozo and Mireia Prat. A guide to the etiquette of the game is also provided by two-time Open Champion and R&A Working for Golf Ambassador Padraig Harrington.
Video footage, illustrations and images are used to explain the many different rules issues which can arise in a round of golf. In addition to a quick summary of the most commonly occurring rules situations, the app features the complete Rules of Golf and a quiz to enable users to test their knowledge.
David Rickman, Executive Director, Rules and Equipment Standards at The R&A, said, “The aim of the app is to act as a quick and easy reference guide to the most frequently occurring Rules and to help ensure golfers are prepared for the many different situations which they might face on the golf course. We hope the app will be used by golfers in many Spanish speaking countries, including those in Latin America.”
The Spanish Rules of Golf app is available to download from iTunes.
