Playing golf is one of those things not everyone gets. Sure it’s not everyone’s cup of tea but it challenges your mind to think beyond the “liking” factor that leads many to ask why even play golf? Or what is it about golf that gets people hooked to the sport? What type of skill do I need to have to be a good golfer or even to be able to start golfing?
A good number of us think that golfing, as portrayed in the movies, is a game for baby boomers, the elderly, and the retired. The depiction of this on the silver screen is inaccurate. The charted number of people who play golf comes from all walks of life. In 2017 in spring, there were about twenty-six million people who played the sport in across the continental US. Although this number is relatively lower than in the past years, the number shows that there is no lack of interest to it.
There are a few things you need to know about golf balls before you start picking one for yourself. This includes construction, dimples, compression, the feel of it and the spin.
Construction is the design and layers of components that make up the golf ball. The suitability of these golf ball types are classified into four; one piece, two pieces, three, four and five piece construction golf balls. Depending on the type, of course, you are in and the type of gameplay you do, there is a golf ball for it. Next, the dimples of the golf balls also are ergonomically placed on them to help reduce drag from the air and also to help create lift. Compression, on the other hand, is the resistance of the ball to change its form once it is hit by the golf club. Essentially golf balls with lower compression are more suitable for beginner to intermediate players while golf balls with higher compression are typically used by players who can do faster swings.
Golfing is a good sport to have with friends and family. But are other players needed in order to play golf? The answer is no. Players can be on the course on their own enjoying their own time. Sure it would be more fun to play it with other but it is not necessary. To top all that, golfing have to be a difficult sport, unless you really want to refine your game and improve. Anyone you know and you yourself can do it. It wouldn’t be such a bad idea to start golfing soon.
