Video Golf Tip | Etiquette on the Course

The game of golf is seldom played alone; it is usually played with either one, two or three playing partners. It is essential to have the utmost respect for your playing partners so I am going to discuss a few social graces that are really essential to the game. First of all, turn your cell phone off. You don’t want your phone ringing in your backswing or someone else’s. Noise is such a deterrent in the golf game so be very quite, stand still, don’t jingle change in your pocket and always stand a safe distance from you’re your partner. Don’t stand on the tee and also stand facing your partner, never in front of which is a safety issue, and certainly not in back of because that person can see you with their peripheral vision. As we move forward onto the golf course and the green, the line of the putt is the line between the hole and where your ball is located. Never walk in that line because you don’t want to leave footprint or indentations that will affect the roll of the ball. Always walk around the hole or in back of the person who is putting. These are issues that really involve a lot of common sense but very important if you want to be a favored guest or golf partner.
