Everything About The 2018 Masters

Golf enthusiasts around the world have been waiting for the 2018 Masters. Competitive golf has been widely known for the excitement it gives to everyone.

The first part of this competition is for the golfers to prepare for the game. The first part focuses on briefing the golfers and lets them decide whether they are ready for competing. Part two involves the giving of rules to the golfers, letting them set up their gears and practice them for the competition proper. The third part is the nerve-racking part where the contenders ease their pressure for the competition.

The game of golf involves a ball and different clubs where the players choose among the clubs could and which among them could give them the best shot and could score the ball in a hole. It doesn’t require a standard area as court. Every golf course is different from each other when it comes to the design. The only requirement is for the courses to have 9 to 18 holes. Yet there are rules and regulations set for each game.

In every game, the number of strokes each golfer makes is very important. Every golfer has his own strokes when playing. Golfers edge over the other by scoring in each whole ahead of each other and the match play scoring system is used in each game.

This game was originated in Scotland sometime in the 12th century as shepherds kick the stones to small rabbit holes and those who scores first wins the game. This goal is still used in golfing these days and the only difference is that golfers use clubs instead of just kicking the ball.

As times change, more and more types of golfing is made. Here are some types of golfing that are becoming widely known:

Stroke play or the medal play

This type of golfing is the most common one as it is used in most tournaments. In medal play, each of the golfers are to complete scoring 18 holes with the least number of strokes.

Match plays

Match plays is where two teams of golfers compete in scoring the most holes from each other. This type is usually played in golf clubs and players in a match play follows a strict set of rules and regulations.

The scramble competition

Scramble is where the player hits the balls in the hole and it will be decided which shot he made was the best. After such, each of the player repeats the act until the competition is over. Most golfers play this game for its simple mechanics.

Skin

In this type of golf competition, a ‘skin’ which is a bag of money is placed in each hole and the players that hit the hole gets the skin and each of them compete to score first than the rest. The word ‘skin’ comes from the actual bag of skin where the cash prize is placed.

The flag

The flag competition is also called the Last Man Standing or the Tombstone because in this type of competition, the golfers start the round with an allotment of strokes and they later on play along the golf course until the strokes they alloted run out.
