For all that s worth in the field, some esteemed individuals
do make a complete jackass picture, unknowingly or no when they
are on the green. The reason for such is they may either never tried
golf or never considered that etiquettes do preside over this gentleman
s game. Do you belong in one category, or both? So stop being someone
else s eyesore whenever a round of golf is decided by reading over
this golf lessons. Who s to say, it may save your face, your job,
or your prospects in the long (or short) run.
Golf Lesson 1: Be a Gentleman
Golf is a game of elegance or it won' t be called a gentleman's
sport. There are strict regulations on some clubs to wear a certain
outfit but for some public golf courses, this regulation may be
a bit slack. Still, golf should be participated in a proper decorum.
As golf become more and more a platform on which professionals intermingle
and negotiate the quality of one's dress can often be regarded the
expression of an individual s success.
Golf Lesson 2: Leave Every Golfer Alone
Each player' s Addresses are treated as sacred. That means all
players stay away and stay put. Nothing can be more exasperating
when somebody acts like a buffoon: standing in front and observing
somebody swing; standing behind and take the risk of getting whacked
by a Seven Iron or even standing near enough to be in somebody else
s corner of the eye. Another man s presence is the ultimate distraction
for players getting ready on Address. What you should do is stand
way back about 5 yards and make no noise. Utterly silent that he
ll forget you were there. Trust me, he won t though.
Golf Lesson 3: Do Your Share and Shout Fore!
Be responsible of your shots. Suffice to say: take care of your
ball. Do watch the entire flight of the ball and take note where
it landed. Nothing can be more frustrating than an hour spent searching
for your ball, especially if your boss also conducts the search
for you. Does this happen? Yes it does and quite surprisingly it
often happens to those novice players occupied with their cool histrionics
that they ultimately missed to remember where the ball landed. And
yeah, do your share and shout Fore!
Golf Lesson 4: Etiquette marks Sportsmanship
You' ll be surprised how much etiquette can be observed in a sport.
If you don' t believe it, wait until you can have your first try
of the game. A lot are to be observed. Even replacing divots is
a considerable etiquette. And no, you just can' t stamp them down;
proper etiquette requires it to be gently tapped by your shoe, as
if tucking a child to sleep. And even then there are other cultures
specific to some golf clubs. A gentleman can really suck in a game
big time and still exude such professionalism that he d be a hot
topic on the bar and grill anytime.
