The Grandest Golf Competition Of All Time
Golf is one of the most intense competitions that everyone look forward to. Competitive golf has been widely known for the excitement it gives to everyone.
This competition is divided in parts and the first one is for the competing players. The first part focuses on briefing the golfers and lets them decide whether they are ready for competing. Part two involves the giving of rules to the golfers, letting them set up their gears and practice them for the competition proper. The last part is nerve wracking as it is where the golfers prepare their mindset for the game itself.
Golf is a game where the golfers face a tough challenge of finding the right gear that could let them score. In golf, there is no standard area of playing which makes it different from all the other sports. Every golf course is different from each other when it comes to the design. The only requirement is for the courses to have 9 to 18 holes. There are specific rules and regulations in each game and each golfers must abide these rules.
Every golfer’s number of stroke is counted in the game. Every golfer has his own strokes when playing. Golfers edge over the other by scoring in each whole ahead of each other and the match play scoring system is used in each game.
Golf was first discovered by Scottish shepherds who kick stones to rabbit holes sometime in the 12th century. This game mechanic is still applicable in golfing up to this day but the golfers use a club instead of simply giving the ball a kick with their foot.
Now, golfing has become a famous competition of different types. These include the following:
Medal play or stroke play
The stroke play which is known to many as the medal play is one of the most popular ones as it is used in most competitions. In medal play, each of the golfers are to complete scoring 18 holes with the least number of strokes.
The match play
In a match play, there are two teams that completes the holes and the team that scores the most wins. This type is usually played in golf clubs and players in a match play follows a strict set of rules and regulations.
Scramble is where the player hits the balls in the hole and it will be decided which shot he made was the best. After such, each of the player repeats the act until the competition is over. Scramble is very popular among golf enthusiasts because it is the less complicated among all the other types
In this type of golf competition, a ‘skin’ which is a bag of money is placed in each hole and the players that hit the hole gets the skin and each of them compete to score first than the rest. The bag of money is called the ‘skin’ because the bag is literally made of skin.
This competition also known as the ‘last man standing’ is also very popular because of its exciting mechanics; the players in this game are first required to provide a number of strokes which they are only allowed to use within the game and during the actual game, they are only allowed to use the number of strokes they provided.
