Synopsis:

A Dictionary of Golf's Colorful Vernacular

There are things they don't teach you in golf school. You may come away knowing how to play a reasonable game of golf, but if someone said to you that he was snake bit ever since his beagle, would you have a clue what he was talking about? There is a secret language of golf that goes far beyond par and birdie. How much of it do you actually know?

... On the 18th tee, Jimbo decided to let the big dog eat. Feeling the pressure, he foozled and hit a wormburner into the mahoofka. His mulligan turned into a culligan when he launched a lateral into the drink. The rest of the hole was all military golf. On his approach, he chili-dipped and landed on the beach, where he found himself facing Yasir Arafat. Jimbo grabbed his spatula and escaped from the cat box and onto the froghair, only to fall prey to a case of the yips. Jimbo ended up carding a snowman by the time he left the dance floor. His buddies went straight to emergency room, but Jimbo got back in the BIPmobile and headed for murderer's row...

From the Author: As we began to put the list of words together, we were astounded at how many terms there are in the lexicon of golf lingo. After years of painstaking research and conversations with countless cabbage pounders, mop squeezers and turf spankers, we compiled a list of 789 essential terms for anyone who aspires to be the boss of the moss. How much of it do you actually know? Take this simple quiz to find out.
