Many people who know little about golf believe that it is a boring game played by old people. However, that’s far from the truth. Golf is a dynamic and versatile game, as there are many different types of games and scoring systems you can play and use. You can even earn bonuses, much like in casino games found in the Casino Room. So, if you are one of those people who shy away from golf whenever they have a chance to play, it’s time to change that. Below, you will see the most popular types of competitions and scoring systems that should change your opinion. Stroke Play Stroke play is the most popular and most common type of golf competition that is usually played at professional tournaments. In this game, all players or teams take a shot at all 18 holes. The total number of strokes required by a player is counted, and the person or team with the lowest total number wins.  Match Play In match play, two teams or two players take shots at each hole as a separate event or round. The player/team with the lower number of strokes on a particular hole wins that contest. If the two players have an equal number of shots, the hole is halved. The total number of hole wins is counted and the winner is determined. Foursome Foursome is a type of golf game played by two teams of two players, four players in total. Players of one team take turns hitting the ball until they pot it. One player has the first shot on odd holes and the other on even holes, regardless of who made the last shot. This game can be played under both stroke and match rules. Four Ball Four Ball is similar to Foursome, but each player plays with their own ball. They compete separately for the holes, and their results are added together at the end of each round. The team with the better stroke count wins the hole. Moreover, the team with more holes wins the competition. Scramble Scramble is one of the most dynamic and most interesting types of golf competitions. It is played by teams...

The Greatest Golf Tournaments of 2019

The Greatest Golf Tournaments of 2019

May 7, 2019

2019 is upon us, which means that now is the perfect time to discuss the best there is in terms of golf competitions. We will be focusing more on the events themselves and less on the motels, anecdotes about the courses and the promotions from Ladbrokes. Here are the greatest golf competitions in the world. The PGA Championship Our list could hardly start without this little number. It is sometimes referred to as US PGA and it is one of the four major championships. Starting with 2019, it will occur every May, making it the second championship of the year to watch out for. What separates the PGA Championship from the rest of the tourneys is the fact that it invites the top 100 players to join, provided they can meet the requirements. The criteria are difficult to follow and even more onerous to achieve. You can either be a former PGA champion, or among the 15 lowest scorers, win the last five Opens, Open Championships, or Masters, win a tournament sponsored by the PGA Tour, or by special invitation by the PGA of America. This year’s Championship is held at the Bethpage State Park in the state of New York. You are more than welcome to check out the results of Brooks Koepka (trust us, it’s worth it). The Masters This tournament was originally brought into existence by Clifford Roberts and Bobby Jones and has since sported numerous traditions, like the green jacket that is given to the winner for a year. To get the said jacket, golfers from all over the world battle over 4 days on the green. The tournament usually occurs in April and this year was no different. On April 14th in Augusta, Georgia, we’ve found out that the winner was the one and only Tiger Woods who, unfortunately, didn’t make the cut for this year’s PGA Championship. This is Woods’ fifth green jacket, which puts him behind Jack Nicklaus by one win. The US Open In Jun, golfers will try their best in the US Open on Pebble Beach. We are yet to see who the winner will be, though people are already speculating that Koepka has a...
