PGA Golf Glossary

Glossary Description

Founded in 1916, The PGA of America is the largest working sports organization in the world, comprised of more than 28,000 dedicated men and women promoting the game of golf to everyone, everywhere.

Of course the PGA website is offering a wealth of golf information and news. Great to see that as part of their golf instruction section, PGA also offers a glossary of golf terms. The golf terminology presented comes in a clean and moderate way. All terms are arranged on one page, with navigating to the different letters via anchors. The site wide search function will also return results from the glossary.

Example Term: Balata

A rubber-like substance used as a cover material for golf balls. Pure balata is rarely, if ever, used today. Instead, manufacturers use blends or synthetic material. Many players prefer balata or balata-like covers because it provides a softer feel. And can provide increased spin. (Most of the players in the championship played with balata-covered balls).
