Golf is one of the world's oldest sports, existing in its earliest form
in at least 1353. "Chole" has changed and evolved dramatically since its
humble Scottish roots; today, it is one of the most popular competitive
sports in the world, not only for how enjoyable it is, but for its
leisurely pace. Despite the cliché, however, golf isn't a sport
relegated to corporate executives. Recent champions like Tiger Woods and
even Michelle Wie have helped shape the game's modern image.
Golf is played on a course, typically with nine or 18 holes. Those with
the "back nine" are often used in professional tournaments sponsored by
the game's governing bodies. Golf requires, at its most basic,
golf balls and golf clubs.
To truly be a part of the game, however, you'll need a golf bag, a golf
cart (sometimes it's a long way between holes!), tees, and golf shoes.
Clubs will be your single largest expense when you begin your journey
in golfing. There are different clubs for different shots, creating
the need for golfers to own an assortment. Woods are used for long shots,
like those that begin a round, or when your ball is still situated on the
fairway. Wedges are for getting your golf ball out of a sand trap or a
similarly detrimental hazard. Irons are for shorter shots, like those
that are close to the green, and putters are for when you're trying to
finally put the ball in the cup.
Golf balls, clubs, tees and shoes are available through a number of sports
retailers, especially those that are dedicated to the sport itself.
