IMG_4028-Large-1-1

Everyone should have at least one passion. Something that makes you truly happy and allows you to escape from daily challenges that may otherwise interfere with a joyous life. For many, this means turning to things like yoga, hiking, painting, sculpting, baking, playing sports or any other similar hobby that can take their mind off negative happenings for a little while. These activities can help bring a healthy balance to life and motivate an individual.

For one man struggling through a challenging childhood of illness and doctor visits, the opportunity to play golf presented itself right when he needed it. He developed a passion for the game that not only made a positive impact on his health but set him up for a happier future.

Learn about Some of the Most Challenging Golf Courses in the World

Origins of the Driver

Drivers have come a long way since the first, hand-carved wooden stick (also known as the golf club) was invented in Scotland in the 1400’s. These sticks were used to play a game that everyone now knows as golf (whether the Scotts adopted the game from the Dutch, Chinese or other cultures has been an on-going debate for years). Drivers were originally known as “long noses.” Today, drivers are part of a family of clubs referred to as “woods”, and are designed for long-distance shots off the tee to achieve maximum results on the course.
