Fans are saying the CP Women’s Open is a once in a lifetime experience even if you don’t know much about golf.
The tournament is currently getting its weekend hype in Regina at the Wascana Country Club.
Fans were crowded around the holes trying to catch a peek of where the balls were landing and in their spare time, they decided to share what every beginner golf fan should know.
One of them is Jeff Palaschuk, who has golfed almost his whole life.
“If you don’t know anything about golf you should come down and watch because we’ve got the best golfers in the whole world here, which is a rare opportunity especially in Saskatchewan…it’s just an amazing experience to see elite golf at its best and they make it look easy, but it’s not,” he said.
He had some advice for those wanting to get into the sport.
“You want to keep ‘er in the fairway. Par is the amount of shots you get to get the ball in the hole. Bogie is one over (par), double bogie is two over and a birdie is one under, which would be a three on a par four,” said Palaschuk.
But other fans kept it a bit more simple at first.
“Get the ball in the hole as quick as you can,” said Dennis Weisbrod with a laugh.
Then he added to Palaschuk’s terminology list.
“Two under (par) is an eagle, three under is an albatross, which is very rare,” said Weisbrod.
980 CJME will be updating scores for the remainder of the CP Women’s Open, which concludes on Sunday.
Public parking is available in the University’s Lot P for $10 a day, where shuttles will bring people straight to the event.
