Let me explain the major differences between jogging and golf.

First of all, jogging is usually an activity that you can do alone, whereas golf is better when you play with a partner or group of people.

Second, with jogging you don’t need any special equipment, you only need running shoes.

However, with golf, you need golf balls, tees, and golf clubs to play.

Finally, jogging is basically free, you can go jogging anywhere.

On the other hand, a round of golf at a golf course can sometimes be expensive.

Those are the three main differences.
