Happy Golfer's Day: April 10th is for swingers

If you've had a "rough" day or are tired of puttering around the house - get a "grip." There’s no need to get “teed” off today. Besides National Farm Animals Day and Siblings Day, April 10 is also Golfer’s Day.

This annual “holiday”, also referred to as Golf Day, is dedicated to those who love the sport of golf. Rodman Wanamaker, along with charter members, founded the Professional Golfers Association of America (PGA) on this day back in 1916.

Folks have been playing golf for centuries. The first recorded game was played in Scotland in 1457 and golf has been a popular sport ever since. It is estimated there are more than 28 million men, women and children golfers in the United States alone. And not only is golfing popular with golfers, the sport also provides jobs for more than 2 million people too.

Regardless of how young or old you happen to be or whether you consider yourself a novice or pro, today is the perfect day to get out on the course, play a round or two and take your best swing.
