Help with the Lingo
« on: June 23, 2006, 10:48:17 pm »

Newbie needs help with the golf lingo.

Any chance you guys could maybe start a list of words with their meaning? 

Like:

Skins

Bladed it
ect.

I'll try a couple Short.

  Skins - Bet on each hole, win a hole win a skin.
   Hit it thin - Club head strikes the ball to high
   Blade it - Much like hit it thin, bottom of club
                 head strikes the ball at or above it's
                 equator (topping it)
   Hit it fat-  Club head strikes the ground before
                   the ball
   Shank it - Ball it struck to close the the hosal
   Fade or Slice - When hit the ball flight curves to   
                        the right(for right handed person)
   Draw or Hook - When hit the ball flight curves to
                         the left(for right handed person)
   Oh Shitt - When the ball flys into woods, hazards,
                  or OB (out of bounds).
 
To late for me to think of any more, maybe tomorrow.

No problem.  I drink and post too.

Oh Shite, yeah I new that one.  Learned it and the "Fore" is actually a golf term a few weeks ago when I played my first round of golf ever.  Luckily for the other golfers, I used the Oh Shite more than fore.

How did you forget:
L-M-N-O-P  - the alphebet on the Tee box leading up to the next PRESS
Toe'd it -  any shot that HogISH hits shiddy
3 Jack
Wolf - the captain
Lone Wolf -  the solo captain
"honey the course is packed"-  translation-  we are playing 27
Two off one- 
Dot Count -  usually around 15-  many times leads to "double um"

I'm off to the course-  hopefully I won't be screaming "GDMF"

The one you need to understand that drives me nuts is the difference between a hook and a draw and a fade and a slice.

A fade and a draw are good things= they are meant to be done and can be controlled!

A slice and a hook are bad things= they are not meant to be done and if they could be controlled they would not have been done.

You can also push or pull a ball which is different than either of the above mentioned terms!

ru-paul, or crossdresser-tried to hit fade or draw, and hit opposite
PBFU-post birdie f--- up

Gary McCord has a hundred of them in his book from a few years back, "A Range Ball in a Box of Titleist" I think was the name.

mulligan - (aka: "lunch ball", "Sunday ball", "do-over")-taking a second attempt at a shot when one doesn't like the result of the first.

albatross-also known as a double eagle-a score of 3 under par..

beach - (aka: "sand trap" or "bunker") any sand-filled hazard

bite- command issued to the ball by a player who wants his/her ball to stop rolling/bouncing. Also the same when using sit.

grip it and rip it..-simply means to drive the ball.

dance floor-the green.

duffer-unskilled golfer, also the same as a hacker.

Dropkick - bouncing the club off the ground first before striking the ball, usually done with the driver.

The Lumberyard - water hazard, from a line from the movie "Caddyshack" - just watch the movie 10 times and you'll have plenty of one liners for the course.

Monkey - the invisible animal in the woods that throws your ball back into the fairway after you slice the hell out of it.  If your ball stays in, the "monkey was hungry" and ate your ball.

"where the big elephants go to die" - where you just hit your ball and it will never be found.

Phil Mickelson - pulling defeat from the jaws of victory, i.e. "Bob pulled a Mickelson on 18 when he hit his tee ball where the big elephants go to die" may also be known as a Jean Van de Velde in certain circles. 

Daly Round - any round full of yo yo-like inconsistencies.  example: birdie, bogey, birdie, bogey, eagle, triple bogey, par, putt your ball into the "lumberyard" off the green and take a "snowman", birdie, double bogey, pick up your ball and go home...
