With the ink scarce yet dry it becomes necessary to issue a second edition, and I frankly own that I gratefully appreciate the ready recognition which the first met with. The original work remains intact, with the exception of a few verbal corrections.

Growing out of more extended observation and experience, a new chapter has been added on "Hazards"; also new chapters concerning the development of the "Haskell" ball and the introduction of aluminum clubs.

Preface To Third Edition

The universal use of the rubber-core ball has made it advisable to recast the chapter on "Balls," and some entirely new matter on the general subject of the modern ball has been added. The new Rules of Golf, together with the interpretations made by the U. S. G. A. in 1909, are appended, in place of the old code.
