How do you compete?
Golf is practiced on a grass course outdoors, but doesn’t have a standardized field of play. In general, the game consists of going through the course completing 18 holes, which are marked with flags. In the case of nine-hole courses, they can be played twice to complete a full round of 18 holes.
You can use a tee, a small support to place and hit the ball. Regarding the course, it has some obstacles that players need to overcome.
Golfers must carry a minimum of 5 clubs and a maximum of 14. These clubs vary depending on the materials they are made of, which can help players reach higher speeds and further distances.
There are two different formats in tournaments: On the one hand you have the stroke play, which consists of finishing the 18 holes counting the number of strokes given to the ball. The player whose strokes are the lowest wins. In general, the course is repeated four times in competitions.
On the other hand, there is the match play, where players compete against each other. Whoever scores the most holes, wins the game. Won and lost holes are considered within this format and the match might be declared over if one party has taken a lead that cannot be overcome in the number of holes remaining.
