The first rule of golf talks about playing in the spirit of the game – acting with integrity, showing consideration to others, and taking good care of the course. Being aware of and practicing golf etiquette is almost as important as the rules themselves.
No one cares how good you are, or even if you know all the rules (as long as you play by the rules).
