Good Words For Bad Shots
By Kickntrue on 1/10/08
I receieved a great book this year for Christmas, A Disorderly Compendium of Golf, by Lorne Rubenstein and Jeff Neuman. I've found it a lot of fun and wanted to share some of my favorite passages from the book. The first is a list of great words to use for bad golf shots. I've heard of some of them- but others are brand new to me, and with my game sure to get a lot of play in 2008!
