The 2018 Masters: Everything You Need To Know

For all golf enthusiasts, the 2018 Masters is one grand event to watch out. The element of excitement is what makes the competition fun to watch.

First among all parts of the competition is a kick start for the golfers. The first part focuses on briefing the golfers and lets them decide whether they are ready for competing. The next part focuses on game preparations such as the game rules, training and putting up of gears. The third part is the nerve-racking part where the contenders ease their pressure for the competition.

The biggest challenge in every golfer in any game is choosing the right club that could hit the ball enough to shoot it in the hole. It doesn’t require a standard area as court. Golf courses vary in design and space and this is what makes the game unique. The only requirement is for the courses to have 9 to 18 holes. Yet there are rules and regulations set for each game.

In every game, the number of strokes each golfer makes is very important. Every golfer has his own strokes when playing. In golf, each player has to defeat his opponent in a match play scoring system.

This game was originated in Scotland sometime in the 12th century as shepherds kick the stones to small rabbit holes and those who scores first wins the game. This goal is still used in golfing these days and the only difference is that golfers use clubs instead of just kicking the ball.

Now, golfing has become a famous competition of different types. These include the following:

Stroke or Medal Play

This type of competition is widely used in professional tournaments. In medal play, each of the golfers are to complete scoring 18 holes with the least number of strokes.

The match play

In a match play, there are two teams that completes the holes and the team that scores the most wins. Match plays are mostly used in golf clubs with many club members and since this type of competition is played by teams, the rules and regulations must be strictly followed by each golfers.

Scramble Competition

Scramble is where the player hits the balls in the hole and it will be decided which shot he made was the best. Then the other players copy the same strokes until the game ends. Scramble is very popular among golf enthusiasts because it is the less complicated among all the other types

The skin

In this competition, each hole contains a prize called a ‘skin’ and each of the players need to score each skin first. The prize is called the ‘skin’ because it is a bag made of skin which contains cash prize.

Flag Competition

This competition also known as the ‘last man standing’ is also very popular because of its exciting mechanics; the players in this game are first required to provide a number of strokes which they are only allowed to use within the game and during the actual game, they are only allowed to use the number of strokes they provided.

These types of competition are what urges golf enthusiasts such as Iain Sharpe to come over and compete for the 2018 Masters Review so join the hype and watch this annual grand golfing event.
