More people play golf – level 3

While most sports struggled to survive the pandemic, golf thrived, becoming more popular than it had been in decades.

As the pandemic began in 2020, people needed some way to get out of the house. In 2020, the world shut down, and golf associations were concerned about solvency and if people would play golf again.

However, there has been a resurgence. Last year, there were 24.8 million golfers in the US, an increase of about 500,000 or 2% over 2019, which was the largest increase in 17 years.

The pandemic may be a part of it; however, companies and technologies are also playing a role. There are changes to the game itself. Everybody is welcome to play, the sport is becoming cooler, and there are technologies both on and off the course that make the game more accessible.

Difficult words: thrive (to live or do very well), solvency (the ability of a company to pay its bills or debts, resurgence (a new start or increase after a period of little activity or popularity).
