The first sport to be played on the moon was golf.
Despite the fact that golf was named the most boring sport to watch by people of all nationalities, it is the first sport ever played in space. Alan Shepard, the commander of Apollo 14 and a golfer, intended to leave a lasting legacy just before departing the Moon’s surface. Shepard used a special 6-iron club to hit two golf balls on the moon.
The golf ball, according to Shepard, had traveled for miles. Since then, it has crashed in a crater known as the “Javelin.” One of the golf facts that will make you reconsider how boring the game is.
You’ll know what to answer if someone tells you it’s impossible to play golf on the moon one day…
