4). Some other names of golf were, Chole, Kolven, Golfe, Golve, but golf finally decided to settle on golf(“History” para.1). During the early years of golf, players would hit a feather stuffed leather ball with a wooden stick(“The Early” para. 2).In golf a player has to strike a ball from a tee to the designated area or the hole in a certain amount of strokes and with a variety of clubs or he will lose(Goodner para. 1).Also the player who gets his or her ball in the hole in the least amount of strokes wins(Goodner para.
Millions of people around the world take pleasure in the game of golf every day, but few know when and where this complicated sport began to evolve. The game is played outdoors on a large course with a series of 9 or 18 holes placed far apart. The intention is to hit a small hard ball using various clubs into each hole with as few hits as possible. The game is loved and hated with equal amounts of interest by many. Golf though is much more to me it is just not exercise it’s an exciting activity which I love.
He was born January 21, 1940 in Columbus, Ohio. He was introduced to golf by his dad, when his dad picked up the sport to help heal a broken ankle. Jack was deemed the nickname The Golden Bear because of his ability to smash long drives, but keep great control near the greens, without any nerves. “He is also in the running as one of the best golfers of all time along with Arnold Palmer, Tiger Woods, etc,” (Jack Nicklaus). Jack was a very popular golfer during his time and even more popular today one famous quote from Jack was, “A kid grows up a lot faster on the golf course.
I think Tim showed his good writing abilities in this book and it showed because it almost seemed like you were right there with him watching this amazing young golfer which has progressed to the best golfer in the world. This book is 45 chapters and the 45 chapters range from Tiger being strapped into a highchair at age 1 and watching his dad pound balls into a net to winning the PGA Championship. The Tiger Woods story is something else. Tiger watched his dad pound balls into a net at age 1 and at age 3 was swinging the golf club like he was a pro. At age 5 he was hitting a three with a fade or draw to perfection.
I can remember it like it was yesterday I picked up the ball verses Chantilly at the restraining line and carried it to the right corner of the box. The right side is my best side for taking shots; I have a fairly strong right hand with my stick. I took my man one on one, I tried to go outside and he was there so I went on the inside of the defender. He wasn’t ready and I had an open shot about fifteen feet out from the goal, I took it. In an instant the Chantilly goalie was on his knees with his stick in the dust.
I was striking the ball very well, even though my swing felt like an unfolding lawn chair. I would have to keep this up for seventeen more holes. In the back of my mind, I knew that a 77 would get me to state for sure. At this same course, just two weeks prior, I shot 77 with a bogey and then a double bogey to finish my last two holes. I knew that if I could just replicate that round, I would be going to state.
It is funny how things have changed. I am now the man who is soaked with sweat, cursing the game of golf, and slamming clubs into the ground. My father sits and watches me as I watched him when I was six years old. I now realize my dad has given me one of the greatest possible gifts he could give me; he taught me the fundamentals of golf. I have learned so much from him about the golf swing, but I realize I will never have a perfect swing.
In this month, local townsfolk played four holes of the game to commemor... ... middle of paper ... ...ne and the advancements that the equipment has made. For a physical project I will build a set of golf clubs to use for the upcoming golf season. I will compare the score that I have shot with my old clubs and the clubs that I have built for my senior project. This will help me further understand how it was to build the clubs that you play with like many men did generations ago. The great Ben Hogan sums up the game of golf the best with," It's the hardest darn game that will bring you back every time with that one elusive shot."(Hist.
I enjoy playing golf. Twice a week, I used to play golf for 2-3 hours at school or in Delhi Air Force Station. It took me 1 year to learn to play golf reasonably well. I love watching golf. My favorite player is Tiger Woods.
That was my first tournament and I was not prepared. I did not expect it to take ten hours. I learned to bring as much food as you can fit in your bag, and do not forget some Advil or pain medicine because your entire body will be sore in the end. All your muscles are ready to give out, your feet just want to be elevated and your back is slouched for carrying a heavy golf bag for many hours. After my first year on the team, the coach warmed up to me.
