Jack D. Rule Jr. (born November 13, 1938) is an American professional golfer who played on the PGA Tour in the 1960s.

Rule was born in Mason City, Iowa[1] and grew up in Waterloo, Iowa. He defeated Jack Nicklaus in the 1956 U.S. Junior Amateur semi-finals but lost to Harlan Stevenson in the finals. He graduated from the University of Iowa and turned professional in 1961.[1]

Rule won twice on the PGA Tour, the 1963 St. Paul Open Invitational and the 1965 Oklahoma City Open Invitational. His best finish in a major was T39 at the 1964 PGA Championship.[2]
