Golf gives us some of the wittiest phrases and terminology. Today’s blog would like to compile a list of your favorites. To start the proceedings, here a few favorites:
“Dew Sweepers”. Phrase used to describe players teeing off first on the weekend in tournaments (usually players who are happy to have made the cut, but rarely contenders).
“The go-rights”. Used as a substitute for the word that no-one will offer publicly (can be a contagious disease); you know, the one that starts with “s” and describes a shot that goes immediately right. Once, when traveling and sharing a room with another professional, I got “a case” of them and my friend asked me to move out for fear of getting them also.
“Don’t touch it, Lord, it’s a two shot penalty”. The immortal words of Father Hurley, our parish priest, after he had skied his tee-shot.
