Yard - One
of the basic units of measurement in golf. Some others are: the stroke (1.4 swings
= 1 stroke); the minute spent looking for a lost ball (1,145 seconds); a 30-foot
putt (divide by 5 if preceded by the phrase "I sunk" and by 10 if preceded
by the phrase "I missed"); the club-length in determining whether a
putt is a gimme (the length of the clubhouse along its longest axis, not including
stairs or porches); and liquid measure at the 19th hole (one drink = two drinks).
Yips A nervous
disorder that afflicts golfers on the green. An inability to take the putter back,
coupled with twitchy hands and the complete absence of nerve, constitutes a case
of the yips. No golfer has ever permanently conquered this condition.
You da man!
A popular expression among golfs great unwashed, generally heard in the millisecond
after a shot has been struck and well before the outcome of the shot can be determined.
This is very annoying to da man when his shot lands in a lake.
