Hi! Welcome to my website, kansasgolf.org. I am Carroll Ball, a passionate golfer and professional writer with several years of experience in golf.
With my in-depth knowledge about golfing, I will be helping other enthusiastic golfers improve their golfing. Acting as an instructor and guide, I will be posting several guides and informational articles for every golfer to relate with.
A Little About Golf
Golf is a popular outdoor sport, with approximately 2.2 million taking up the sport in 2015 only, according to Forbes. Being a low-intensity sport appeals much to both the young and old, either for competitive or recreational purposes.
Unlike other “ball” games, there are no standard fields – any terrain works great so far it has the required holes (9 or 18). For you, you only need a set of clubs, a ball, and some tees.
Golfing is often referred to as a gentleman activity with so much fun and challenge for interested individuals. There are enough reasons why you should grab a club and play the ball-to-hole game.
So if you’re looking for convincing reasons why you should play golf, you might want to continue reading.
1. A Simple Exercise
Although golf is a less intense sport, it can also be considered a good exercise for the young or old. It is an outdoor activity, and most golf courses are so big that you have to walk several meters.
According to a post on Harvard’s website, about 120 calories are burnt from walking (3.5mph) in 30 minutes. In golf, you are always on your feet, constantly moving and swinging a club.
All these activities may look simple, but they can increase your heart rate, burn some calories and help maintain a healthy lifestyle.
2. Improves Health, Concentration, and Mental Health
Getting the golf ball into a hole requires a high level of concentration. As you aim for the spot, you also watch your shot power, height and also include some creative thinking to put the ball in the right path.
This doesn’t look easy, but it isn’t what it seems. There are several golfers around the world, with more still joining. Golf as a sport teaches you how to concentrate, focus, coordinate yourself and ensure accuracy at all times.
As you concentrate on the game, you shift your focus, more blood gets to the brain, and endorphins are released into the body. Also, you free yourself from stress, tension, pain and, ultimately, elevate your mood.
3. It Helps You Build a Good Social Life
To be candid, there isn’t much fun playing golf alone. Hence, playing with family and friends is the real deal. Interestingly, there are several golf associations such that you can meet new people and make new friends.
Unlike many other sports, golf can be played by all ages, and you get to meet many business people. While you develop good social connections, you can also forge new business relationships.
4. Fewer Chances of Severe Injuries
Being a low-impact sport, golf can be played by anyone, including old adults. Furthermore, the chances of getting an injury are minimal. There isn’t anything like tackling as in football, heavy waves as in water sports, etc.
