Knowing More About This Sport-Golf

Mar 22, 2008
Golf as we understand it originated in Scotland, although it is probable that ancestor games to modern golf originated on the Continent. Golf originated at Saint Andrews, in Scotland. Golf is defined in the Rules of Golf as "playing a ball with a club from the teeing ground into the hole by a stroke or successive strokes in accordance with the Rules.

Golf courses can be built on sandy areas along coasts, abandoned farms, strip mines and quarries, deserts and forests. Although golf is a minor issue compared to other land-ethics questions, it has symbolic importance as it is a sport normally associated with the wealthier Westernized population, and the culture of colonization and globalization of non-native land ethics. Golf competition may be played as stroke play, in which the individual with the lowest number of strokes is declared the winner, or as match play with the winner determined by whichever individual or team posts the lower score on the most individual holes during a complete round.

Some Golf Equipment:

1. Golf Bag
2. The Golf Ball
3. We have Golf Clubs

Some Golf Techniques:

1. A chip shot is a very short lofted shot, generally made with an abbreviated swing motion.
2. A drive is a long-distance shot played from the tee or fairway, intended to move the ball a great distance down the fairway towards the green.
3. A drive may place the ball on the green as well, but the term "approach" typically refers to a second or subsequent shot with a shorter-range iron club chosen for the distance required.
4. A draw is when you shape a shot from right to left in a curving motion.

Some Golf Playing Tips:

1. The golf swing has a very unnatural feel to it and therefore must be practiced in order to allow it to begin to feel natural.
2. Try not to buy expensive equipment as a beginner.
3. One of the most sure fire ways to start playing better golf is to get to the first tee mentally prepared to play your round.
4 Try to avoid playing many times per week or limit it to 9 holes.

Some Do's And Don'ts In Playing Golf:

1. Do play more break on downhill putts and less on uphill putts.
2. Do make your short putts easier, like chess try forward planning, try to hit your long putts to the easiest place from which to make your second putt.
3. Do take the final 'gimme' putt, don't pick your ball up when it is near the hole and assume you putted it.
4. Don't be afraid to pass on golf outings that usually double the price of playing unless the purpose of the outing has meaning for you personally.
5. Don't spend a ton of money on your newly added clubs, just go to the local second hand store or discount chain and buy something from the bargain bin.
6 Don't rob your family of your valuable time playing golf.
