In most cases, trying change the wording into "common English", whatever that is, would create imprecision in the meanings that the rules are intended to convey. Most such changes would require the rule thus modified to become far more wordy in attempting to say the same thing, making the task of locating specific items even more difficult than it already is for those uninitiated in the arrangement of the document.
The rules are written in more of a legal form, but one that is actually not that hard to understand. The Rules of Golf are certainly quite simple when compared to something like signing up for Medicare and Medicare supplemental insurance. That is stuff that needs to be translated from whatever twisted logic was used to write it. Trying to wade through tax forms is another chore that is beyond reasonable.
The Rules of Golf are written with a strong leaning toward logic. It only takes a basic understanding of a few of the fundamental principles which provide the basis for the way golf is supposed to be played, to see their wonderful efficiency in defining the processes needed to play the game.
I find there are so many little swing thoughts going on that it's hard to not miss one or two. I think the most common fault is letting the head move forward a bit during the swing. I try to get to the point that these things happen naturally without specifically thinking about them. that's the rick to improving your game.
And when you add a few beers to the mix, all hell breaks loose.
