The Basics of Golf

Many Golfers aspire to be the next Tiger Woods or Phil Mickelson; however, they too didn't just wake up and had top skills. Let's begin with the basics. With the proper knowledge and practice, golf can be taught and understood relatively simply. 

Whether on the course, at the driving range, or simply in your backyard, practice is still the best way to improve your game.

Today, golf remains a highly popular sport, with television shows based on golf such as The Big Break, online casinos launching golf-themed slots, and even books all about the game.

This is a fast start guide for you to start! This is a guide for beginners to hit the green!

How To Get Started 

The goal is to get your golf ball in as few shots as possible from the point of departure or "tee" into the green and into the hole.

A typical 18-hole golf course or tea, green and flag-shaped physical hole areas.There are also more miniature courses, such as 9-hole courses, that are great for beginners. The course offers different obstacles, which will be revealed as you play the game.

You must start on the green and then to the hole marked by a flag.

First, the player furthest away from the hole will strike the ball. Whoever got the fewest strokes on the previous hole goes first.

When a ball is lost on the course, one stroke is taken, including if it goes into a water hazard. You have 5 minutes to find your ball, and the penalty is two shots, if it goes off or into the water and a distance penalty.

There are several different types of golf grips.

Golf grips are classified into three types: overlapping, interlocking, and 10-finger grips. The most common grip is the overlapping grip. 

There is, of course, no one-size-fits-all grip when it comes to learning how to hold a golf club, but understanding the differences can be beneficial. 10-Finger Grip, Overlapping Grip, and Interlocking Grip are a few examples.

Understanding Golf Scoring Terminology

The language of golf can be incredibly confusing and obtuse. To better understand the following score meanings, have a look and research to see how to interpret Aces, Albatross, and Bridies.
