How Easy Does Golf Look

particularly if they are watching the world's best players competing on professional circuits where 300 yard drives, iron shots than hit a green and spin backwards and holing 40 foot putts are all in a day's work.

So then, how hard can it really be to hit a small white ball down a wide-open fairway, lob it onto a green and roll it into a hole which is considerably larger than what the ball is? After all, there are no opposition players standing in your way, no one trying to distract you or take your legs out from under you, and golf has seen huge improvements in equipment technology - designed to make the game easier, so surely it must be a piece of cake to master?

These thoughts are understandable when observing the elite playing, but every golfer, especially those new to the game, knows that reality is quite different. Many people who have been able to play any sport they turn their hand to, have struggled with golf. The most individual of all sports can also be the most frustrating. Even the best players can have the round of their lives one day and the next time they play feel like the world is against them.

But there are reasons we keep coming back to the game. Even if only one round out of five is somewhere around our expected playing standards, the positives of playing with good friends and hitting just one great shot in a round is enough to bring us back week after week. All the money spent on green fees, equipment and lessons is made to seem worthwhile when we hand in a good scorecard and sit back for a drink and a laugh as we compare rounds with our golf buddies.
