Double-whammy on April 10th for National Whatever Days: Golfer's Day and National Sibling's Day.

Golfer's Day
What a beautiful day it is for some golf! For those that may not know as much about golf, here's some insight on this particular sport. Golf is a precision club and ball sport in which competing players (or golfers) use many types of clubs to hit balls into a series of holes on a golf course using the fewest number of strokes. Golf is defined, in the rules of golf, as “playing a ball with a club from the teeing ground into the hole by a stroke or successive strokes in accordance with the Rules.”

It is one of the few ball games that does not require a standardized playing area. Instead, the game is played on a “course”, generally consisting of an arranged progression of either 9 or 18 “holes”. Each hole on the course must contain a “tee box” and a “putting green” with the actual hole, and there are various other standardized forms of terrain in between such as the fairway, rough, and hazards, but each hole on a course and indeed among virtually all courses is unique in its specific layout and arrangement.

Golf competition is generally played for the lowest number of strokes by an individual, known simply as stroke play, or the lowest score on the most individual holes during a complete round by an individual or team, known as match play. Stroke play is the most commonly seen format at virtually all levels of play, although variations of match play such as “skins” games are also seen in televised events.

National Siblings Day
I know there are some only-child people out there, so grab a close friend and enjoy this day too! National sibling day celebrates growing up with those distinct people who know just how crazy your parents are, went on the same vacations for your whole life, and you will always be attached to them. If you and your siblings don't live in the same town anymore, pick up the phone and call them. Remind them that y'all are always in it together. If you do live in the same town, grab lunch or froyo, but remember today how special it is to be a sibling.
