From its humble origins in Scotland the sport of golf has exploded to become one of the most practiced leisure activities in the world. The game is played everywhere from the Amazon to Siberia. It doesn’t matter if you don’t have the best clubs, a decent collection of balls, or even access to a country club, the average person in much of the western world can just get out and play at their local course. It’s a fan favorite too and tournaments in the United States and Europe draw crowds in the hundreds of thousands. While the sport can be expensive and even downright snobbish in places, it is still a game of the people and for the people.
