Tees? Check!

Balls? Check!

Clubs? Check!

It’s time to put on your best golfing attire and see if you have what it takes to ace this ultimate rules of golf quiz!

Now before we get going, raise your hand if you have trouble waking up for work in the morning. Press the snooze button too many times? Don’t care if you walk in late? But now let’s say you have a tee time for Sunday morning at 6 a.m. Bet you’d have no trouble waking up then! And you’ll be right on time to boot!

You see, there’s something different about waking up early when it involves heading out to the course. Bright and early on a summer’s day, there’s a cool breeze and the crisp smell of morning dew. Your buddies meet you, and away you go, driving out to the first hole. As the morning goes on, you spot other golfers, giving them a polite head tilt or quick wave as you pass from hole to hole, stopping politely if they are about to swing. It’s just part of the etiquette! You appreciate the sport, you respect the rules and before you know it, you’re on the back nine - hoping the wind and the bunkers treat you a little better than they did on the front!

So as you begin this quiz, we wish you golfer’s luck: "May your drives be straight and down the fairway. May you avoid the rough. And when your balls fly over water, may they land only in soft, green stuff”! It's tee time, here we go!
