A golfer whose handicap is zero is called a “scratch golfer.” A golfer whose handicap is approximately 18 is called a “bogey golfer.” It is possible to have a handicap below 0; these are referred to as ‘plus’ handicaps, and at the end of the round, a ‘plus’ handicap golfer must add their handicap to their score. If their handicap is a plus number, like +3, then adding that number to the number of total strokes will actually increase that golfer’s final score. If a player shoots a 69 and has a plus 3 handicap, their final score will be 71
The golfer should consider the body as consisting of three separate and distinct parts, the lower body (from the waist down), the upper body (between the waist and the shoulders), and the shoulders. The shoulders rotate around the upper body (specifically the spine) which acts as the anchor for the shoulders. Common sense tells you that if that anchor (the spine) moves, there’s almost no possibility that the clubface will return to the same position it started from at address. In order for your clubface to return to its position at address you will have to move your spine back into the exact position it was in before it moved. What do you think the probabilities are that you can do that? Since the chances are slim to none that a moved spine can be successfully moved back to its original position, it is imperative that every effort be made to keep the spine stationary during the swing up until impact with the golf ball.

The golf swing is outwardly similar to many other motions involving swinging a tool or playing implement, such as an axe or a baseball bat; however, unlike many of these motions, the result of the swing is highly dependent on several sub motions being properly aligned and timed, to ensure that the club travels up to the ball in line with the desired path, the clubface is in line with the swing path, and the ball impacts the centre or “sweet spot” of the clubface. The ability to do this consistently, across a complete set of clubs with a wide range of shaft lengths and clubface areas, is a key skill for any golfer, and takes a significant effort to achieve.

Public courses and private golf clubs both offer lessons for novice players. Depending on the region in which you live, there are costs and benefits with either option. At private clubs, you will likely have a golf pro instructing you. This person may have better experience than instructors typically hired by public courses. Of course, you will pay more accordingly. Usually the greens are better maintained in private country clubs, as well.
The majority of professional golfers work as club or teaching professionals (“pros”), and only compete in local competitions. A small elite of professional golfers are “tournament pros” who compete full time on international “tours”. Many club and teaching professionals working in the golf industry start as caddies or with a general interest in the game, finding employment at golf courses and eventually moving on to certifications in their chosen profession. These programs include independent institutions and universities, and those that eventually lead to a Class A golf professional certification. Touring professionals typically start as amateur players, who attain their “pro” status after success in major tournaments that win them either prize money and/or notice from corporate sponsors. Jack Nicklaus, for example, gained widespread notice by finishing second in the 1960 U.S. Open to champion Arnold Palmer, with a 72 hole score of 282 (the best score to date in that tournament by an amateur). He played one more amateur year in 1961, winning that year’s U.S. Amateur Championship, before turning pro in November 1961.
Once you get the hang of the sport, you may never leave your golf clubs at home again. Courses exist all over the world, allowing you to continue golfing while on vacation (or even planning your trip based on the courses that exist at the location!) Regional differences permit you to enjoy the local vegetation, landscape and scenery during your play. Many resorts include golf courses among the amenities offered to guests.
