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.
