Golf as we know it today originated from a game played on the eastern coast of Scotland in the Kingdom of Fife during the 15th century. Players would hit a pebble around a natural course of sand dunes, rabbit runs and tracks using a stick or primitive club.
In the 20th Century, however, as golf spread around the world, it became not only a popular recreational sport but a multi billion dollar industry that was quickly picked up by the mass media. Players such as Ben Hogan, Byron Nelson, Sam Snead, Walter Hagen, and Gene Sarazen became cult figures in professional golf circles, but the advent TV in the second part of the century took golf to a whole new level. Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Greg Norman, Tom Watson, Lee Trevino, Nick Faldo and Tiger Woods took the game to the masses and made the sport an art form.
