Golf course lingo according to Golf.com

Golf.com put together a great slideshow of 44 of the best sayings in golf.  To view the slideshow, see the link in the tweet below:

I would recommend checking out the entire slideshow in order to gain some street cred next time you hit the links.

Here are my thoughts on a few of my favorites.

“Abominable snowman” is a nine on a hole.  Nice take on the traditional “snowman,” which is an eight.

“Army golf” is a favorite of Tiger Woods, and means you are hitting the ball, “left, right, left, right.”  Tiger seems to be one of the few who can play “army golf” and still shoot 65.

“Danny Devito” is a tough five-foot putt.  If you play fast greens, you are bound to get a few “Danny Devitos.”

“Dollar Menu” is a person who doesn’t tip their caddy well.  As a former caddy, “Dollar Menus” are not cool.

“Wall Street” is the “bailout area on a hole.”  Playing it safe is a part of golf and a part of life.  Wall Streeters either understand this lesson very well or don’t understand it at all.

“White Castle Putt” is a slider.  Stay away from the “White Castles” and the “Danny Devitos” next time by keeping your approach shot below the hole!
