China also witnessed

When we consider the fact that the game of golf did not come to America until the late 19th century Cheap Tennessee Titans Hoodie , the success of our native-born players is nothing short of astonishing. The list of PGA players with the most wins is dominated by Americans. And most writers and critics agree that Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Wood, both born in the U.S., are the two greatest golfers in the history of the sport. How did this happen?

For centuries, the game of golf was considered a rich man’s sport. In fact, it was known as the “Game of Kings.” As a result, few commoners applied. Invented in Scotland in the 15th century, it was enjoyed by aristocrats and nobles alike. While game did gain a loyal following in parts of Europe, it did not catch on in America until the Industrial Revolution.

A time of growth and prosperity, people of every class got a lot richer. In addition to a growing middle class, there was also a sizable upper class for the first time in the nation’s its history. Many of these upscale American families started taking their societal cues from the Europeans, especially the English. They read the same books, followed the same fashions, and played the same games as the gentry in Europe.

At the time, the two most popular gamessports for upper-crust individuals were golf and tennis. Both were imported to with an aggression that bordered on obsession. Tens of thousands of golf courses and tennis courts were built in America during the 20th century. The U.S. is now home to about half of the world’s golf courses, far more than any other nation! It is no wonder we produce so many world champions.

Where to go?

With more golf courses than any other state, Florida is often the destination of choice for golf vacations in the U.S. Of course, it is not only the sheer number of courses that attracts people, but the amazing variety and year round play. Golfers of any skill or experience level can choose from more than 1,250 golf courses in the Sunshine State. They can challenge themselves on championship courses or learn the game on less difficult grounds. Either way, they will need electric golf carts for sale to help them get around.

As much as players may love the game, golf would be far less enjoyable without electric golf carts for sale. Think about it! Not only would you have to walk hundreds of yards to the next hole, you would also have to carry your own bags. The game would then become an endurance test that would take three or four times as long to complete. In other words, golf wouldn’t be a major sport without electric carts for sale.

Yes, we know, they seem like toys. But the carts are an integral part of the entire golfing experience. Therefore, it is important to consider them before you book your next golf vacation. What should you ask?

Like any other vehicle, golf carts wear out and become less dependable as they age. In fact, it is not at all uncommon for them to break down because they require EZ go golf cart parts. Older carts are also more dangerous than newer models, since they do not handle as well. It is for these reasons and many more that you should always ask about the age of the carts at a particular course. If they have an ancient fleet of golf carts, it may be best to visit another resort. "
BEIJING, Feb. 8 (Xinhua) -- The West's relentless disparagement of the Sochi Olympics has been all too familiar even prior to its opening on Friday, which was supposed to be a sporting event but suffered identical political finger-pointing as Beijing did six years ago.

The rhetoric was old-fashioned but not unexpected: alleged corruption, overrunning costs and human rights infringements. That is despite opinion polls, notably one by Gallup, produced headlines like ""Russians See Gold in Sochi Olympic Games.""

China also witnessed overwhelming domestic support for the 2008 Olympics, but no matter, as Western media bombarded Beijing with negative coverage at the time. The pattern was obvious: play down the consensus and whip up differences when there is ideological or political distance between the West and the Olympic host country.

Granted, the Olympics cannot but put a spotlight on its host, and Sochi is clearly not without headaches. So was Beijing, London, and probably in two years Rio de Janeiro.

However, to magnify troubles under a microscope and pin political tails with a less than glorious agenda is unbefitting for the grand Games. In fact, it appears opportunistic, albeit habitual given the West's track record.

""The Olympics are about building bridges to bring people together,"" International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach said wisely at the opening ceremony. ""They are not about erecting walls to keep people apart. Embrace human diversity and unity.""

Such was the spirit Chinese President Xi Jinping carried to Sochi. It is customary for the Chinese people to offer congratulations upon their neighbors' joyous occasions, Xi said.

China firmly supports Russia in holding the Games, not only manifesting China's respect for sportsmanship and the Olympic ideals, but also providing a timely vote of confidence in a close neighbor and friend.

Such principles, promulgated in China's ""new pattern of relationships between major countries,"" should apply to other international affairs beyond the Sochi Olympic Games.

In stark contrast, Euro-Atlantic leaders have shied away from appearances at the Olympic spectacle to avoid what would - or would not - be characterized as guilt by association. Apparently, politics rather than humanity was on their minds.

Many, including our friends at The Economist, have stoked the memory of the 1980 Moscow Olympics, taking pains to remind the world of the so-called international hostilities evidenced by the absence of a numb.
