Golf is played on a large outdoor course, in which a small hard ball is struck with a club into multiple small holes in the ground, the goal is to use the fewest possible strokes to complete the course.
The ball must be hit using standard clubs from the start of each hole to the green and ultimately into the hole, which is marked by a flag. Players strike the ball in turn with the furthest away from the hole going first. At the start of a new hole whoever took the least shots on the preceding hole shall go first. The most common scoring method in golf is called stroke play, where the total number of shots a player takes to get the ball into each hole is added together. Events are held over four days and the winner is the player who completes 72 holes in the fewest number of shots.
The golfer is the only role played in the sport.
There are three main traditional types of golf clubs: Woods, Irons, and Putters. Each golf club are used for different scenerios. Woods are played for long shots, Irons gives you more accuracy then distance, and Putters are used to roll the ball into the hole.
Woods is an American professional golfer. He is tied for first in PGA Tour wins, ranks second in men's major championships, and holds numerous golf records. Woods is widely regarded as one of the greatest golfers of all time and one of the most famous athletes in history.
