Golf

Golf is a club-and-ball sport in which players attempt to hit balls into a series of holes on a course in as few strokes as possible. Unlike most ball sports, golf does not have a uniform field of play, and navigating the various types of terrain seen on different courses is an important component of the sport. The game is played on a course with an 18-hole ordered sequence, though leisure facilities are sometimes smaller, with nine holes. To start with, each hole in the sport must contain a teeing field as well as a putting green with the hole or cup, which must be 4+14" (11 cm) in diameter. Other basic terrain types in between include the fairway, rough (long grass), bunkers (or "sand traps"), and different dangers (water, rocks), but each hole on a circuit is distinctive in its structure and design. Individuals or teams compete for the lowest total on the most single holes in a whole round, known as stroke play, or the lowest rating on the most individual holes in a complete round, recognized as match play. In the 15th century, Scotland was the birthplace of golf as we know it today. In 1764, the Old Course at St Andrew's developed the 18-hole round. The Open Championship often referred to as the British Open, is golf's first major and the globe's earliest event. It was first held at Prestwick Golf Club in Ayrshire, Scotland, in 1860. The Masters, the U.S. Open, and the PGA Championship are the other three major tournaments in men's professional golf, all of which are held in the United States: The Masters, the U.S. Open, and the PGA Championship.
