More people play golf – level 1

20-10-2021 15:00

24.8 million Americans play golf in 2020. It is 500,000 more than in 2019. Golf becomes very popular in 2020.

It is interesting because the coronavirus also starts in 2020. People cannot leave their homes. Golf clubs are not sure what will happen. They worry the people will stop playing golf. It does not happen. Golf is a sport for more than business people.

Young people start to play golf. They think that golf is cool. There are new technologies and apps. Players can see their progress in their phones.

Difficult words: golf club (a place where golfers meet and play golf), cool (popular and interesting), progress (when you see changes in how you do a sport or activity).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
