Golf is a game of etiquette and exposure. Players are responsible for their actions and personal conduct on the golf course, even when others may not be looking.
Players must know and abide by the rules of golf and be able to conduct themselves in a kind and respectful manner towards others, even in a competitive game.
In golf, it is important to show respect for oneself, playing partners, fellow competitors, the golf course, and for the honor and traditions of the game.
Confidence plays a key role in the level of play that one achieves. Players can increase confidence in their abilities by being positive and focusing on something they are doing well regardless of the outcome.
Players are responsible for their actions on the golf course. It is up to them to keep score, repair divots, rake bunkers, repair ball marks on the green, and keep up with the pace of play.
To succeed in golf, players must persevere through bad breaks and their own mistakes, while learning from past experiences.
A round of golf should begin and end with a handshake between fellow competitors. Players also should be still and quiet while others are preparing and performing a shot.
Using good judgement is very important in golf. It comes into play when deciding on strategies and choices on and off the course.
It is important to appreciate your fellow competitors no matter what the outcome of the game might be. Camaraderie, mutual respect and friendship are integral parts of golf.
Golf is unique from other sports in that players regularly call penalties on themselves, and report their own scores.
