Three Tips To Help You Benefit From Golf Video InstructionWritten by Mike Pedersen
Golf video instruction can be a powerful tool in helping any golfer improve their handicap. Yet many golfers do not fully benefit from them. The reason is that their approach is wrong and they are therefore unable to benefit from practical advice and tips received through golf video instruction.
Here I carry three tips to help you benefit and reap full rewards from golf video instruction tapes.
A) Watch whole golf video instruction tape to end first and then slowly review it starting from beginning. Quite as you enjoy watching golf video for very first time, most of instructions and tips will hardly be remembered. Exactly same thing happens when you read a book whose contents you want to retain. This is why it is very important to go through golf video a second time carefully taking note of all instruction and tips. It is not a bade idea to record it all in a note book.
B) Apply only one golf video instruction tip at a time to your game.
Croquet - a historyWritten by Peter Jay
Croquet is a classic yard game that has been played for centuries all over Europe. A game similar to croquet is believed to have been played in Ancient Rome. The current version of croquet, however, originated in about 14th century by French peasants who used wooden mallets to hit wooden balls through wickets made from willow branches. Croquet became popular in Ireland in early eighteen hundreds and transferred to England around 1851. It quickly became popular and spread throughout colonial empire, reaching virtually every area of British colonial rule by year 1870. Traditionally, croquet was played on a professional playing field, with grass trimmed, similar to a golf course. At turn of century, however, Americans, disagreeing with new English rules outlawing mallets with rubber heads, and introducing a six-wicket court, maintained their own version of nine-wicket croquet. Many Americans also developed a more simple and rugged version of nine-wicket croquet, which could be played casually in their own backyards. This is version of croquet that many Americans know and play today. The well trimmed croquet field is still used in professional play, both in America and at international level. Croquet was a popular game among youth of British Empire, who could use it to socialize and flirt without their parents constantly peering over their shoulders. It was initially more popular among women, but in 1874 there was a decline in popularity of game among women, because it was becoming too scientific. The game also decreased in popularity as lawn tennis began to replace it, bringing in more money than croquet. As games popularity declined in England, it increased in America. In 1865, Newport Croquet Club in Rhode Island was formed. In 1871, Milton Bradley published “Croquet – Its Principles and rules.” In New York, in 1882, twenty-five clubs from National American Croquet Association. The game met with some setbacks in America, when in 1890’s, game was condemned by Boston clergy, who spoke against it because of its association with drinking, gambling, and licentious behavior. Croquet was played as an Olympic sport in 1900 and 1904 Olympic Games.
