The best place to turn to learn more about golf.

golf are found abound everywhere. However, when one needs to find out more about golf, it is better to search here.

Golf — Rules & Etiquette

In 1744, the Company of Gentlemen Golfers was established in Edinburgh and then codified the first rules of play. They've been evolving ever since. The official USGA rules, plus decisions, covers over five hundred pages. So, no brief article can cover every facet. The following is highly simplified.

In general, the idea is to hit your own golf ball the fewest number of times in order to reach a hole that starts a couple of hundred yards distant. Remember, the rules may not always be fair, but like your parents' rules — they're rigid.

Don’t be surprised if you find anything unusual here about golf. There has been some interesting and unusual things here worth reading.

TEEING OFF

You should tee off between or behind (up to two club-lengths), not in front of, the tee-markers.

BALL IN MOTION INTERFERED

There are universal applications on golf everywhere. However, it is up to us to decide the way used for these applications to get the best results from them.

If you deflect or stop your ball in motion you've cost yourself two strokes. Accidents will happen, but you still pay the price. If a ball struck by you is interfered with by someone else, play it as it lies. If your ball is struck by another ball — oh well, that's life. Unless you're both on the putting green at the start, in which case "that's life" costs two strokes.

PLAYING THE BALL

We do hope that you find the information here something worth recommending others to read and think about once you complete reading all there is about golf.

Play the ball where it lies. Don't try to improve your position by bending anything fixed or growing, except in taking your stance or making your swing.

BALL AT REST MOVED

If you move your ball after it's come to rest, you've cost yourself a stroke. It all counts, baby.

BALL LOST OR OUT OF BOUNDS

If you lose your ball and can't find it after five minutes, you have to play another ball from the spot where the last shot was played. You lose one stroke.

Writing an article on golf was our foremost priority while thinking of a topic to write on. This is because golf are interesting parts of our lives, and are needed by us.

OBSTRUCTIONS

You're allowed to move rakes, beer bottles, etc if they're in your way. If you put them there to interfere with your partner, you owe him a beer. If an immovable obstruction, such as a water fountain, interferes with your stance or swing, you're allowed to drop the ball within one club-length of the nearest clear point that's not nearer the hole.

ON THE GREEN

An area about 10 yards in diameter of smoother, lower grass near the hole is called 'the green'. When you've been skilled or lucky enough to get your ball there, remove the flagstick from the hole and replace it when all players have finished the hole. You can pick up and clean your ball on the green, provided you replace it exactly where it was. And, by the way, you're expected to do all this with golf clubs, (no more than 14), and nothing but golf clubs.

ETIQUETTE

The ideas behind golf etiquette are all common sense courtesies. Dress appropriately, don't make loud noises, and don't toss cans or bottles onto the course.

Most courses are pretty busy so arrive on time. And, if you can't get through a hole or a shot in a reasonable amount of time, let those behind you play through. No taking calls in the middle of play!

Who plays first is usually decided by a coin toss, but you can be creative. Spin the beer bottle works for some.

Don't get in the way of someone's shot. This is not only courteous but in the best interest of your safety. A one-pound clubhead moving at 100 miles per hour can easily turn your head into mush.

To err is human, to forgive is divine. So we would indeed deem you to be divine if you forgive us for any misunderstandings that may arise in this article on golf.

Replace divots (chunks of turf and earth scooped up during a swing). And, unless you have magical powers, rake the sand trap after you're done making your bunker shot.

Don't fling your club fifty yards when you miss that two foot putt.

Now that you've heard a dozen or more "Don't(s)", here's a "Do". Do have a good time.
