The Grandest Golf Competition Of All Time
Golf is one of the most intense competitions that everyone look forward to. This year, we bring one of the grandest golf competitions of all time – The 2018 Masters.
First among all parts of the competition is a kick start for the golfers. This part gives them guidelines and helps them assess their taking part in the competition. The next part focuses on game preparations such as the game rules, training and putting up of gears. The last part is nerve wracking as it is where the golfers prepare their mindset for the game itself.
The game of golf involves a ball and different clubs where the players choose among the clubs could and which among them could give them the best shot and could score the ball in a hole. It doesn’t require a standard area as court. Golf courses vary in design and space and this is what makes the game unique. The only requirement is for the courses to have 9 to 18 holes. However, like any other game, there are certain rules and golfing regulations that players are to follow.
One important factor to note in a game is the number of strokes the golfer makes. The strokes vary from each golfer. Golf uses the match play scoring system where the player gets a point in every hole where they beat their opponents.
Golf was first discovered by Scottish shepherds who kick stones to rabbit holes sometime in the 12th century. This goal is still used in golfing these days and the only difference is that golfers use clubs instead of just kicking the ball.
Now, golfing has become a famous competition of different types. These include the following:
Stroke play or the medal play
This type of golfing is the most common one as it is used in most tournaments. In medal play, each of the golfers are to complete scoring 18 holes with the least number of strokes.
In this type of golf competition, golfers play in teams with the same objective and the team that gets the most number of holes wins. This type is usually played in golf clubs and players in a match play follows a strict set of rules and regulations.
In this type of golfing, each player scores the balls in a hole and it will be decided which among the shots is the best one. Then the other players copy the same strokes until the game ends. Most golfers play this game for its simple mechanics.
In a skin competition, the players compete for a certain prize known as the ‘skin’ in each hole.
The prize is called the ‘skin’ because it is a bag made of skin which contains cash prize.
The flag competition is also called the Last Man Standing or the Tombstone because in this type of competition, the golfers start the round with an allotment of strokes and they later on play along the golf course until the strokes they alloted run out.
There are many more types of golf competition and in the 2018 Masters Review, these competitions will be played by golfing enthusiasts such as Iain Sharpe and other famous ones from around the world.
