Rules Of The Game Made Easy

If you didn't already know, the point of the game is to hit/play the ball with your clubs and try to get the golf ball into the hole with as few strokes (aka shots) as possible. This is done without influencing the ball (or course) in any way outside the general rules of the game (2 stroke penalty if you do).
