Highlights of Golf Basics:
Chapter 1 – Rules of the Game
A game of golf can last for any amount of time and is dependent on the number of people playing, their experience and ability with the game, and the availability of the course. A lone golfer playing on a course that is not busy may be able to complete a game in less than three hours, while a group of four playing on a crowded course may take over five hours to complete a game.
Chapter 2 – Golf Terminology
The following terminology is commonly used during play. Understanding these terms will aid in the further understanding of many of the terms used throughout this manual, and will ultimately aid in increasing your enjoyment and satisfaction in the game of golf.
Chapter 3 – The Equipment
Once the appropriate clubs have been decided upon and purchased, a golf bag is required to ensure ease of transportation across the green. A standard golf bag should be of the correct weight, and should not be too heavy for the player to carry. It should include balls, tees, a pitch marker repairer (which is an implement used to repair damages to the green), and should also have a towel that hangs from the strap to dry and clean club heads during play.
Chapter 4 – Get a Grip
A good grip plays a key factor in developing a good swing, and consequently a good game. The basis for developing a good grip involves correct placement of the club in the hands and tightness of the grip to ensure your hands work effectively together as one.
Chapter 5 – Hitting the Ball
During a swing legs should be planted firmly on the ground and feet should be approximately shoulder width apart. Knees should be slightly flexed and should remain so throughout the swing. Weight should be evenly distributed between the left and right feet, and between the heel and the ball of the foot.
Chapter 6 – Superb Short Games
The term short game refers to play occurring on or near the green. Shots taken during the short game focus more on accuracy as opposed to power or distance. Common shots utilized in the short game are chipping, pitching and the flop shot.
