The first rules of golf were a code of thirteen laws created in 1744 from the Honorable Company of Edinburgh Golfers. In 1754 the Society of St. Andrews Golfers also adopted this code of thirteen rules. In 1888 the Society of St. Andrews Golfers, now the Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews, drew up their own set of rules and by 1897 the R&A was generally accepted as the governing body of Golf. When the USGA was founded in 1894 they adopted the R&A's code of rules and added a few of their own. It took until 1952 for the USGA and R&A to settle on a uniform set of rules for the game of golf. In 2004 the governing body for the rules of golf split off from the R&A Golf Club of St. Andrews to form a group solely focused on governing the rules. This group is known solely as the R&A. Now the R&A and USGA meet regularly to discuss and coordinate rules.
