I can't figure a "Paris Hilton" out.
Golf Lingo Test
By Kickntrue on 5/12/09
Do you speak golf? I found an NY Times article with a couple terms- let's see how you do with knowing them. The article itsself is interesting, but I'm guessing a lot of on course terminology is regional. I knew most of these, but there were a couple writer Bill Pennington mentioned that I didn't know.
If you know one or more of these- drop your answer in the comments so we can all be using the lingo correctly. Add others if you've got them.
What is a(n) ...
[ comments ]
Barkie - par after hitting a tree
Arnie - half lemonade, half ice tea
Breakfast ball - taking a mulligan
Shrimped shot - severe hook
A pigeon - easy pickins'
Oscar Bravo - OB, out of bounds
Paris Hilton - (this is bad) a very expensive hole
Acey Duecy - betting game (ace is the low, duece is the high)
AND, I did not look them up...
Well... you made quick work out of that! Anyone have any new ones?

Nancy Pelosi - too far to the left
Rush Limbaugh - too far to the right
Miltary Golf- Left, right, left, right
Trevor Spring says:
Sonia O' Sullivan - Ugly shot, but it runs for miles.
Rosie O'Donnell- You didn't exactly hit it thin.
Elephant ass - High and stinky
an Arnie is actually when you save par from being the woods.
a Barkie is also known as Woodies or Seves
a USA putt = U Still Away

I thought a 'Danny Devito' was a 5 footer? Dual purpose I guess.

Hasselhoff - shot in the bunker (beach).
Monica Lewinski..Hooker, O.J.Simpson...Slicer, Ted Kennedy...Can't driver over water, Bill Clinton...Can't remember the last hole played.
