Swinging a Golf Club 101

Golf is the game of mastering details. If you have never practiced golf before, then you probably don’t understand the amount of concentration and devotion this sport involves.

First, you should focus on the way you stand. Your front foot should be placed ahead of the ball, with your feet a little bit wider than the width of your shoulders. This way the club will rest against the middle of your body and you will have total control over it.

Second, you need to get close to the ball but not too close. Your arms shouldn’t be totally bent or outstretched to reach the ball with your club. Check your alignment and bend your knees slightly.

Finally, it is time for the backswing, where you hold the club above your head. Remember to follow through even if you don’t hold the club too high in the backswing.

During all phases, you should keep your eyes on the ball. Now follow it and see where it will take you. It all starts with the right swing. If you can master your club, then you are in for a good game.

Golf? What does it Even Mean?

If you are interested in history or have spent a considerable amount of your time exploring Wikipedia pages, then you might find this interesting. Things that we practice on a daily basis usually have an interesting history and one of them is the word golf. What does it even mean? Where did the word come from?

A lot of historians date the evolution of the game to a popular game played by the Romans called paganica.As the Romans conquered most of Europe, the game started to spread widely. Another theory suggests that the modern game originates from a Chinese game that was very popular between the eighth and the fourteenth century.

However, it is proved that the modern game originated in Scotland. The word “golf” is derived from a very old word that means “club”. It was first mentioned in a document linked to King James II when he banned the game as it acted as a distraction from archery. The ban was lifted when King James IVgot interested in golf himself and started practicing it. This only proves how popular the game was.
