All About Golf
By Sintilia Miecevole, Fri Dec 9th

Sunny laid back Sunday morning, extended weekends or a vacation,discussion on none of these is complete without a mention ofgolf. What exactly is Golf? Well it is an outdoor ball gamewherein the aim is to hit the ball into a series of holes in theminimum possible strokes. A round of consists of 18 holes.Now the number of strokes you need to hit one hole is your Par.Each hole has a teeing area around it, which includes a fairway,a rough sideway and a green well-mown area around the hole. Thenthere are the "not so wanted" barriers like sand traps, wateretc that are called the bunkers.

It is believed to have originated from an ancient game calledchole, supposedly meaning, "ball". Most of the people believethat Scotland is where was born, probably out of a banned15th century game called 'gowf'. However many folklore relate itas an acronym for Gentlemen Only, Ladies Forbidden. The modernGolf came into being again in Scotland in the later half of the19th century. Later on over the 20th century saw a faceliftwith a variety of equipments and techniques being invented.

Golf has woven itself in the social fabric as the game of theelite and high-end businessmen. Would you believe if we tell youthat many US business school add to their managementcurriculum? It is a game of social status. After all one has toshell out huge sums on latest equipment, the right clothing andthe green fees of the course. This has still kept awayfrom the reach of common man. Nevertheless, the massivepopularity of the game can be judged by the very fact that thereare over 32,000 courses in the world!


Players move around the course with their caddies whomanage the equipments of the players. The

player whose ball isfarthest from the hole gets a chance to play first when eachindividual player has had his chance of playing the ball once.The game is won by the person or the team that scores themaximum holes. It can be played by teams in foursome or byindividuals. A very interesting term taking rounds in thegolfing community is "Golf handicap." This is the score ofproficiency of different players, which affect their net score,thus allowing players of different capacities to play againsteach other.

People say is not played by rules but by etiquettes.However, there are a few laid down rules. The most basic are"play the ball as it lies", "play the course as you find it",and "if you cannot do either, do what is fair". A Golfer canplay several types of shots such as tee shot, fairway shot,bunker shot, puts, pitch, flop, chip and a swing. A golfswing is the most complex shot that involves perfectcoordination of the complete anatomy of the player.

Over the years equipment has grown in term ofsophistication and technique. From balls, tees and clubs togolf carts, bags shoes, etc; it is a whole big market out there.The British officers first started professional golf. Now thereare several tournaments like PGA tour, Ryder Cup, U.S. Openetc. In this time and age when pollution is a big problem, thevast courses prove to be the breathing lungs of cities andtowns where they are located. They nurture the local flora andfauna and provide a welcome respite from the concrete jungle.
