The History of Golf
While there is documentation of many cultures playing stick and ball games - the modern game of golf is attributed to Scotland. The game of golf officially became a sport when the Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers established the first rules in 1744 and set up an annual competition with silverware prizes. Today, millions of people around the world play golf.
The Live Golf Experience
Looking to enjoy 18-holes in-person? Luckily, SeatGeek has a large inventory of golf tickets for a variety of golf tournaments. Seeing a golf tournament in-person gives you a much better understanding of the course and how the players approach each hole. TV does not successfully present the nuances of the fairways, the speed of the greens, the thickness of the rough, or the overall difficulty of the shot. A few tips if this is your first time watching a tournament live - follow a lesser known golfer so you can actually see some golf. This is opposed to following someone like Tiger Woods - between the crowds and the police - you won’t see much of them or the fairways.
