Golf is said to have its origins in a game played by Scottish shepherds from the end of the 14th century. The idea was to use a wooden stick to hit small-sized stones through the air towards an exact point. It was in the 15th century that students at Saint Andrews began to use clubs and proper balls. In 1860, the English Open Championship was the first major official competition, followed soon after by the US Open in 1895. The creation in 1916 of the US PGA (Professional Golfers Association) marked the birth of professional golf.
