How to Play Golf

Many people find it very relaxing when they play golf while others enjoy the competitiveness of the game. Golf is a game which tests the mind and body. It is both challenging and calming at the same time. It may frustrate you, but you will end up falling in love with the game. If you are interested in learning the game, you will first have start with the basics and then continue to master the game. In the below article you will be reading about some of the basic golf rules, how to swing a club and how to hit the ball.

Basic Rules:

The object of the game: The purpose of the game is to get the golf ball from the tee into the hole. You can identify with the flag that is kept near it. Your job is to get the ball into the hole or place it near the hole with the lease possible shots. In a standard golf course you will find about 18 holes, and in a smaller course, you will find about nine holes which are usually perfect for beginners.

You are not allowed to move the Ball on the Course:

As a beginner you will end up hitting your ball in places you don’t want it to land and most of you might have the urge to pick up the ball and move it to a convenient position but unless the ball is blocked by a man-made obstruction you are not allowed to move the ball. If your ball falls in the water, you will have to take one stroke penalty and then try again.

The person with the Lowest Score wins:

Have a scorecard with you and keep track of every shot you hit. If you happen to shoot on par or below par you are doing well at the game.

Swinging the Club:

While swinging the club, you need to make sure that you are standing with your feet apart. When you are in this position, the weight of your body gets evenly distributed to the centre of your feet and not to the toes. On bending slightly and leaning forward will help you to place the club on the ground from where you will be able to hit the ball.

Make sure to place the arm of your dominant side close to your body and when the club is placed parallel to the ground you need to position it towards the sky.

 

Hitting the Ball:

Your weight needs to shift towards the side where you have hit the ball. Your dominant knee will kick inward to close the gap that is there between your legs. Make sure that you don’t stop the swing as soon as the club hits the ball. As you are twisting your hip, you will have to move your arm inside and then back again towards your body.
