                                                                  By George Gabriel



   Golf started a little more than 500 years ago. It may have gone back as far as the roman days. The
golf ball was a leather pouch stuffed with feathers. Is it possible the kids back then started the game of
golf by taking the feathers of their father’s arrows and stuffing their pouch, and used a club instead of a
bow to get the curvilinear motion of a game they really wanted to play?

The Scottish Shepherds started playing golf back in Scotland, by hitting a leather ball stuffed with
feathers. So many people played the game of golf in Scotland, that the government eventually stopped
the game. The government wanted the people to practice archery, so they could be good enough to
defend their country. Was stopping the game of golf altogether a mistake?

Judging by the enthusiasm of how golf is moving forward today. They might have been better off
stopping the use of the mashie and niblick golf club, and made it mandatory to use the bow and arrow
instead. It would have accomplished two things. The people would have improved their archery skills,
and for the people who continued using golf clubs, it would have speeded up golf play at the same
time. All they had to do to make it safe was lengthen the tee time intervals. The wind may have been
the only other dangerous factor. The biggest problem would have been getting an audience or a crowd
to watch along the sidelines.

Now taking a look at the similarities of golf and archery, one would think they went hand in hand. Both
sports require a shaft, target, distance and accuracy. The two sports are played with a curvilinear
motion. Players from both sports have to use a straight arm and a bent arm. The two sports have
rounds to play. Both the arrow and golf ball are capable of going 400 yards or better in a single shot.
The tournaments included junior tournaments. Carrying either equipment is typically swung over the
shoulder. The circle in a target is the approximate size in width as the tin cup. Equipment for both
sports is made with grooves in them. The one difference between the two sports that stands out the
most, one requires a nock and the other requires a niblick to play with?

                                                            Archery History
                                                             By Per Graeve



 Archaeological findings show that the bow and arrow has been around for at least 20,000 years.
Findings of stone arrow heads in Africa indicate that the bow was invented there possibly as early as
50,000 BC. The bow is considered to be the first machine constructed by humans that could store
energy. The principle has always been the same, the archer transfers his muscle energy into the bow
with help of the string and then the bowstring passes on the power to the arrow and gives it a
tremendous speed. The impact of an arrow is lethal to any pray or enemy.

The bow has been a popular weapon in warfare for thousands of years. The Egyptians used the bow
against the Persians 5,000 BC.

Skilled archers has been a valuable asset for many Kings through history, and as a hilarious example
of that is James II, King of England who in 1457 AD stated that football and golf took to much time from
archery practice and therefore should be banned!

Archery has a long history as a sport, and the Scottish club Kilwinning Archers was formed in 1483 and
thus one of the oldest sports clubs in the world. Archery was an event at the Olympic Games in 1900,
1904, 1908 and 1920. The International Archery Federation – FITA was founded in 1931 and the first
World Championships took place the same year. During the 1940s international archery began to
grow. Target Archery is since 1972 again a game in the Olympics. Archery can be practiced in many
forms, but the most common styles beside Target Archery is Field Archery and 3-D Archery. Flight
shooting is another branch of the sport and it exits on shooting an arrow as long as possible. A more
rare style of the sport is Clout Archery. The target is on the ground and the distance is 165 meters for
men and 125 meters for women.

Per Graeve has been an archer for more than 30 years. He is the former of the Archery website
Archery Gold. The website contains articles on archery, forums and blogs. http://www.archerygold.com
