Golf Rules - Who draws up the Rule Book?

As you know the game of Golf is being played in all parts of the world.
If you are wondering about the rules of the game, well, basically the two main bodies that discuss and deliberate on the rules of the game, and periodically update them, are The R & A (which takes its name from The Royal & Ancient Golf Clubs of St Andrews) and the United States Golf Association.
As independent bodies, The R&A and the USGA work closely together to produce a uniform code of rules so that wherever the game is played the same laws apply.
The rest of the world generally will adopt this Rule Book through affiliation of the respective national unions, associations and federations with these two bodies.
For more information, please refer to the respective websites:
