For my innovation day project I chose golf because even though I play it I don't know much.

Golf is a sport that you can play at almost any age. Golf can also help with coordination and balance, as well as arm strength. Now some facts: the longest drive ever was 515 yards and the longest put was a monstrous 375 feet, each year 125,000 golf balls are hit into the 17th hole at the Stadium Course at Sawgrass. The chances of making 2 hole-in-ones in one round of golf is one in 67 million. Golf balls travel farther in hot weather than in cooler weather. Golf is one of the oldest sports. Some people think that golf is not a fun sport because of the waiting, but that is part of the sport.

About the Golf Ball

Did you know that the first golf ball looked like a small tennis ball? Did you know that golf balls originally had a light material inside so they would go further. The first golf balls used leather on the outside.

How to hold the club.
