Before we begin, let's first have some basic information about the game GOLF.

The word "golf" is not an acronym for anything. Rather, it derives linguistically from the Dutch word "kolf" or "kolve", meaning quite simply "club". In the Scottish dialect of the late 14th or early 15th century, the Dutch term became "goff" or "gouff", and only later in the 16th century "golf".

The linguistic connections between the Dutch and Scottish terms are but one reflection of what was a very active trade industry between the Dutch ports and the ports on the east coast of Scotland from the 14th through 17th centuries.

Some scholars suggest that the Dutch game of "kolf", played with a stick and ball on frozen canals in the wintertime, was brought by the Dutch sailors to the east coast of Scotland, where it was transferred on to the public linkslands and eventually became the game we know today.

Now that you know some basic origin of the game, let's discuss on how to play the game.

How to play golf?

The game of golf has been around for over 100 years! In those 100 years, we had heard of many great golfers, but many great golfers are still yet to come. As you read on you will discover the different techniques, and the different parts of the game.

Putting

Most golfers believe that driving the golf ball is the most important part of the game. All they are worried about is hitting the ball the furthest. In real time golf, that's not the case. Putting is when you have a club with a straight blade at the bottom about 1 to 3 degrees in loft. The object is to get the ball in the hole. It's not as easy as it looks. In fact, it's actually the hardest part of the game. When you're putting, you have to read the break. In other words, you have to look at the putting surface and see what way the ball is going to break into the hole. If you ask any pro about putting, they will all agree with me that putting is the most important and hardest part of the game. As the old saying goes, " Drive for show, Putt for dough"!

Chipping

Chipping is also a very important part of the game. When you are chipping, you are trying fly the ball on the putting surface close to the pin so that you can make the putt. Chipping occurs from about 5 yards to 50 yards. There are different types of chipping. One is called Bump and Run. When you do this, you put spin on the ball so it will hit the putting surface, bump up and run towards the cup. Naturally after that you'll have to putt

Driving

When a player drives the golf ball, he's not after distance. The key to driving is accuracy. Tiger Woods may hit the ball 310 yards but his driving accuracy is terrible. When you drive the golf ball, it doesn't mean your teeing off with a driver. When your on shorter holes you might use an iron or a wood. Ill get into the clubs a little later on. When you drive the ball you tee the ball up on a tee about 3 inches in the air. It gives you a little bit of a boost to hit the ball. With a 11 degree driver, driving the ball off the ground wouldn't be to easy! Driving isn't the most important part of the game, but it is sure necessary.

Clubs

A golfer is aloud to carry a maximum of 14 clubs including a putter. The clubs consist of a 3 iron, 4 iron, 5 iron, 6 iron, 7 iron, 8 iron, 9 iron, pitching wedge, and sand wedge. The woods consist off 1 wood, 3 wood, and 5 wood. They make 7 woods and 9 woods and they make a 2 iron and 1 iron but the clubs I listed are the ones that count. The lower the number, the lower the ball flight will be, and the further the ball will go. A 7 iron will go a shorter amount of distance then a 5 iron. A 1 wood will go further then a 3 wood. A sand wedge is used out of the sand and a pitching wedge is used to pitch the ball up on the green. That's the basics about the clubs of golf.

Stop spamming blogspot users with asking to exchange links. Do not you know that pair of links (from blog A to blog B and visa versa) are not good for SEO. One way link is what you need. And my answer is now, I will not put a link to your blog at this stage. May be later if I find something interesting for me on your blog. Also, as I consider your comment on my blog as spam, you won't get 10ES as other author of comments.
