Since 1975, The PGA of America and the USGA, working together to support the best interests of the game, have offered to the public a series of workshops on the Rules of Golf. This annual cooperative effort brings together a significant number of the most knowledgeable thinkers and educators on the Rules of Golf to offer a variety of workshops around the United States for anyone interested in learning more about the worldwide code that governs the playing of the game. These workshops are attended by Rules officials employed by professional golf tours, volunteers who offer their time and expertise to the USGA and state and regional golf associations to help run competitions, PGA professionals who work at golf courses across the country, amateur and professional golfers who play the game competitively and especially average golfers who are interested in knowing more about the Rules so they can increase their enjoyment and appreciation of the game.
Workshops are held each year during the months of January, February and March. The 2014 curriculum will include three offerings:
1. Fundamentals of the Rules of Golf: a two-day workshop covering the fundamentals of the Rules of Golf and the principles upon which the Rules of Golf are developed.
2. Rules of Golf Workshop: a 3½-day workshop covering all 34 Rules of Golf, unabridged and in detail.
3. 85+ Rules of Golf Workshop: a 3½-day workshop covering all 34 Rules of Golf, unabridged and in detail for individuals who have demonstrated a very high level of Rules knowledge by scoring 85 or higher in the past four years on the 100-question PGA/USGA Rules of Golf exam given in conjunction with three-and-a-half-day workshops.
