5 Cool Things About Golf

National Golf Day!

National Golf Day!

Happy National Golf Day! I am not a golfer but having lived in Augusa, Ga for several years, I grew to appreciate this sport. Every year, thousands of avid golf fans flooded the city to be a part of Masters Week at Augusta National. The streets sourounding Augusta National were lined up with vendors of all sorts and the atmosphere was charged. I miss those days.

Anyway, here are some interesting and random facts about this genteel sport.

  • The modern game of golf originated in 15th-century Scotland.
  • Golf will be included in the 2016 and the 2020 Olympics.
  • One of the world’s most popular actors, Samuel L. Jackson, is also an avid golfer. In fact, the star of flicks like “Pulp Fiction” and “Django Unchained,” has a contract clause to play golf twice a week whenever he films movies.
  • Golfing is out of this world–well at least off the planet! It’s true! To this day, golf is one of only two sports, along with the javelin throw, to have ever been played on the moon. Back on February 6, 1971, Apollo 14 member Alan Shepard hit a ball with a six-iron, swinging one-handed as a result of his pressure suit.
  • There are 336 dimples on a regulation golf ball.

There you have it. Go out and play a couple of rounds today. Oh, by the way today is National Taco Day. Maybe you can enjoy a delicious spicy taco while you improve your swing. Have at it!
