Top Golfers of All Time

Top Golfers of All Time

Golf is a game in which players use a special club to sink a small ball into each of the nine or 18 holes on an outdoor course using as few strokes as possible. Fields used for the courses were originally grazed by sheep, whose tails were clipped short for an effective grazing pattern. In addition to the traditional names “irons” and “wood,” today’s clubs are more likely to be made of stainless steel than iron. 

The heads of woods are normally made from metals like steel or titanium, rather than wood. During the 15th century, golf became popular in Scotland.
