The Grandest Golf Competition Of All Time
Golf is one of the most intense competitions that everyone look forward to. Competitive golf has been widely known for the excitement it gives to everyone.

The second part is where the golfers are let to prepare for their gears and undergo practices as they are also given the rules of the competition. The last part is nerve wracking as it is where the golfers prepare their mindset for the game itself.
The biggest challenge in every golfer in any game is choosing the right club that could hit the ball enough to shoot it in the hole. Unlike most games, golf does not need a standardized court. The design of each golf course differs from the other and the space is not the same as well. However, each golf course must consist of 9 or 18 holes. There are specific rules and regulations in each game and each golfers must abide these rules.
Every golfer’s number of stroke is counted in the game. 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.
This game was originated in Scotland sometime in the 12th century as shepherds kick the stones to small rabbit holes and those who scores first wins the game. This goal is still used in golfing these days and the only difference is that golfers use clubs instead of just kicking the ball.
Now, golfing has become a famous competition of different types. These include the following:
Medal play or stroke play
This type of golfing is the most common one as it is used in most tournaments. In the stroke or medal play, each golfer must complete all 18 holes in the course and the player the lowest total net scores when it comes to number of strokes wins.
The match play
Match plays is where two teams of golfers compete in scoring the most holes from each other. Match plays are mostly used in golf clubs with many club members and since this type of competition is played by teams, the rules and regulations must be strictly followed by each golfers.
The scramble competition
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. Most golfers play this game for its simple mechanics.
In this competition, each hole contains a prize called a ‘skin’ and each of the players need to score each skin first. The prize is called the ‘skin’ because it is a bag made of skin which contains cash prize.
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.
