First among all parts of the competition is a kick start for the golfers. The first part focuses on briefing the golfers and lets them decide whether they are ready for competing. The next part focuses on game preparations such as the game rules, training and putting up of gears. Part three requires a lot of focus as it is where the golfers are feeling the pressure of the competition while acting gracefully under it.
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. Unlike most games, golf does not need a standardized 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.
In every game, the number of strokes each golfer makes is very important. Although, each golfer has his own strokes in playing. Golf uses the match play scoring system where the player gets a point in every hole where they beat their opponents.
Originated in 12th century Scotland, this game was just a pastime to shepherds who compete with each other in kicking stones into rabbit holes. This game mechanic is still applicable in golfing up to this day but the golfers use a club instead of simply giving the ball a kick with their foot.
Now, golfing has become a famous competition of different types. Here are some types of golfing that are becoming widely known:
Stroke or Medal Play
This type of golfing is the most common one as it is used in most tournaments. This type of competition requires the golfers to complete all 18 holes and the one with the least number of strokes wins.
The match play
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. After such, each of the player repeats the act until the competition is over. This type is considered to be the easiest one and this is why it is mostly used by golf enthusiasts.
In this competition, each hole contains a prize called a ‘skin’ and each of the players need to score each skin first. The bag of money is called the ‘skin’ because the bag is literally made of skin.
This competition also known as the ‘last man standing’ is also very popular because of its exciting mechanics; the players in this game are first required to provide a number of strokes which they are only allowed to use within the game and during the actual game, they are only allowed to use the number of strokes they provided.
These are just some of the many types of golf competitions set for the 2018 Masters Review so don’t miss out your chance to see famous golfers including Iain Sharpe take over the golf course.
