The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2018-02-14T06:55:23Z PGA Tour - 2018 Genesis Open Preview 2018-02-14T06:55:23Z pga-tour-2018-genesis-open-preview 2018 Genesis Open Preview Tiger Woods headlines an already star-studded field this week at the Genesis Open. Last year, Dustin Johnson cruised to a five-stroke victory; after a T2 in last week’s AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, it would be no surprise to see him in contention again. Notables in the field include Rory McIlroy, 2017 Player of the Year Justin Thomas, and two-time Genesis Open Champion Phil Mickeslon. Riviera Country Club will be hosting the event for the 55th time of the tournament’s ninety-one year history, and has been the host course exclusively since 1999. Players to Watch: Dustin Johnson: Not only is he the defending champion, he’s also finished in the top-4 the last four seasons. It should be no surprise to see him contend this week. Marc Leishman: Playing some great golf this year, with six top-10 finishes in his last ten tournaments across the globe. Bubba Watson: Although not in the greatest form as of late, he’s still a two-time winner of this event, and this could easily be the week he finds a spark in his game. By Mike @ The Golf Society Getting Ready for a Golf Game 2016-06-10T03:20:36Z getting-ready-for-a-golf-game Getting Ready for a Golf Game - How to Conduct Yourself on the Golf Course by The Golf Society Like many other sports, golf has its own etiquette and set of expectations. Whether you are new to the game or not, it is always a good idea to brush up your golf etiquette. Knowing how to conduct yourself on the course will help your reputation and allow everyone you play with to get more out of every round. Here are a few tips you should follow every time you hit the local links: .   Learn about the game before you start. Knowing the rules of golf is important, whether you are playing a big tournament or just enjoying a round with friends. .   Take lessons. You do not have to be an expert golfer to enjoy the game, but having a basic level of competence will help everyone around you. Take a few lessons with the local pro and prepare yourself before you join a foursome. The other three players will thank you. .   Try not to be the slowest player. There is nothing wrong with a casual game of golf, but consistently being the slowest player in your group is just bad form. Keep the game moving as much as possible and try not to slow down the other people on the course. .   Repair the ground as you go. Keeping the course is good shape is the responsibility of every player. Fixing small divots and putting the ground back the way you found it is one of the best ways to show your consideration to the course and your fellow players. .   Keep your temper under control. No one wants to see a golfer throwing a tantrum. Even if you are having a bad day, you need to keep your temper under control. .   Stick to your commitments. Emergencies happen, and when they do, you will need to cancel your golf date. But barring an emergency, you should strive to keep your commitment to the game. Cancelling at the last minute is bad form, and it wastes the valuable time of the other players in your group. .   Try not to comment too much. There is nothing wrong with complimenting a fellow player on a great swing, but try to stay as silent as possible on the course. Other players are trying to concentrate, and the excessive noise could throw off their game. .   Be a considerate driver. When you use a golf cart, try to make it as unobtrusive as possible. Stick to the accepted areas of the course and be careful to avoid damage to the course as you drive. .   Keep your phone in your pocket. No one wants to hear you chatting on your cell phone as you play. Keep your phone off and in your pocket. If you must leave your phone on, set it to silent mode to avoid disturbing other players. .   Be helpful to others. Whether it is carrying a golf bag for a player whose back is hurting or offering a few tips to a new player, strive to be as helpful as you can. Everyone will appreciate your helpfulness and dedication to the game you love.   Whether you are a scratch player or just an average one, a day on the links should be fun and relaxing. Knowing the rules and following the expected etiquette is the best way to keep the game moving and allow those around you to have as much fun as you are.  Introducing The Golf Society 2016-06-01T06:16:57Z introducing-the-golf-society-1 www.thegolfsociety.com.au There's been a dramatic and very welcome shift in the golfing world in the area of fashion over the past 5 years but unfortunately for the Australian golfer it's been all too hard to get our hands on the brands designing and manufacturing beautiful, modern and innovative golf clothing. The Golf Society delivers golf's greatest brands into Australia, some for the first time into Australia, many with an expanded range into Australia. Where possible we'll be releasing our seasons in-line with European and US seasons so that you're wearing the absolute latest fashions and every item is guaranteed 100% authentic as we're an authorised retailer for every brand we present.
