School of Golf: History (Lesson 3)

School Of Golf History

It's Day 3 of bunkered's School of Golf series - and you're officially halfway through the week!

Every day this week, we are uploading FREE educational content specifically for kids who would otherwise be at school. 

The idea is to keep young uns' brains ticking over and make learning at home both fun and different, whilst also giving them a little bit of golf knowledge that they might not previously have had. You can find more about the  School of Golf  here.

In the meantime, let's get going with today's lesson...
