Golf is a simple game. You have a bunch of clubs and a ball. You have to hit the ball with a club into a series of holes laid out in the middle of a large, grassy field. As simple as it is, many people believe golf is the hardest game in the world. If you’re like most golfers, you play the sport for fun, relaxation, and a chance to get out and enjoy the great outdoors. If you’re like Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, or Tiger Woods, you get to do all that – and make a gazillion dollars to boot!
