There are many sports that are available for young adults, whether they are men or women. There is basketball, a game played with two hoops and a ball where the idea is to shoot the ball into the hoop more times or with more points than the opposing team. There is baseball (softball for young adult women) where the object is to score more points.
There is tennis, which involves a net and certain lines and the ability to get the ball into the lines without the other person being able to get the ball into their lines. They involve service games, doubles matches, singles matches and more. And then there is golf, which is a game played on a course with a set of clubs and a hole.
The goal in golf is fairly simple: get the ball into the hole (which is anywhere from double digit yards away to over 500 or more yard) in as little amount of strokes as possible. The lower the amount of “strokes” needed to get the ball into the hole, the better, and the person with the lowest score during competition wins the competition.
Golf is a game that is difficult for many and involves a great deal of strategic thinking. For one, a maximum of 14 clubs are allowed on a course during a round at a given time. Those clubs have faces which are set at certain angles, which account for distance as well as trajectory. Generally, the lower the club (4, 5, 6, etc), the longer it is.
And the longer it is means that more torque can get behind it, creating more force, sending the ball a longer way. Golf is seen as a gentlemen’s or women’s game, in that there is the person competing against the course. Although this is possible that a person would compete against players during competition, the focus is on beating the course.
The goal in golf is to get the ball in the hole in as few strokes as possible, but this is not always easy. There are fairways, which are the parcels of land that lead to the hole. There is rough at the edge of each fairway, which can trap balls and make them harder to hit. There are sand traps, which trap a ball in sand from which a player has to hit.
And then there are the greens. Greens can vary in size, from just a few yards to many yards. On the greens, a golfer is supposed to use a “putter” which is a flat stick that moves the ball towards the hole. The green can be sloped in many ways and the process of determining the route of the ball to the hole is called “reading the green.”
There are many statistics surrounding golf. They are in the following section.
- A regulation golf ball has 336 dimples.
- 23% of professional golfers are female.
- A 175-pound man can burn 460 calories if he carries his clubs during an hour of play. On a nine-hole course, he can end up walking almost 2.5 miles.
- The chance of two holes in one in a single round are approx 67 million to 1.
- By 1900 there were more than 1000 golf clubs in the US.
Golf is generally a solitary sport, though there are playing partners, people in the competition, and people called “caddies” who carry the clubs and advise the golfers. The whole family can enjoy brunch, however, while the person is playing, whether that person in a man or a woman.
Brunch is an activity that is seen after breakfast and before lunch, hence the term “brunch.” Brunch began in England and took 30 years to catch on in the United States. Family brunch is a way for the children and the family to sit down during, before, or after a golf round.
Family brunch generally involves mimosas, pancakes, fruit, special brunch food, and more. Family brunch involves getting together with family. Family brunch involves the use of utensils like forks and knives. There are many terms associated with brunch and golf and they are as follows.
The terms are golf club, golf club events, golf club social events, golf courses, golf course, golf equipment, golf events, golf program, and golf tournament.
