1. Play Terms
1) Tee Up: It literally means the time to put the ball on the tee or the start of the game, which refers to the act of putting the ball on the tee.
2) Tee Off: It means hitting the first tee shot on the ball on the tee and the start time of the game. Tea-up and tea-off are used in the same sense.
3) Honor: The person who has the right to tee-shot first when deciding the order of play is expressed as Honor with respect.
4) Green Speed: The speed at which the ball rolls on the green is more than 2.8 meters/s, and less than that is slow. We check every day at the golf course, so you can ask the caddie and adjust the putting according to the speed.
5) Carry: A term that describes the distance the ball flies to the point where it falls, based on the point where it falls, not the distance the ball rolls.
6) Run: The distance that a ball rolls from Carry, the distance it flies to the point where it falls, is referred to as a run.
7) Puttinley: A term that refers to the degree to which direction the ground on which the ball is placed is inclined.
8) Conceed or OK: When the ball is close to the hole, it is expressed as a conced when the hole is acknowledged. In terms used by amateurs, not professional games, when the ball is close to the length of the putter from the hole cup, the opponent expresses his/her intention to say okay, and sometimes it is not. In other words, there are no clearly defined criteria such as the distance of the conced or the rules.
Also, if you get a conced, it’s like putting one put, so you just have to add one point to the score.
9) Mulligan: It’s a term used when a ball doesn’t fit in a hole cup, giving you one more chance with no punishment.
10) Drop: Often referred to as dropping a ball, which means moving the ball to a place where it can be played within a club when the ball is in an obstacle or a certain position and cannot be hit inevitably. Drop it from the knee level.
11) Temporary ball: It means a ball that is placed once more as a reserve when the ball is lost or there is a possibility of OB when viewed from a distance after a swing.
12) Booking: A system that allows you to book and play with a specific group or people who are understaffed when a group needs four players but are understaffed.
2. Golf shot terminology
1) Shot: Depending on the type of club, it is expressed as Driver Shot, Iron Shot, Wood Shot, etc. Exceptionally, when taking a shot with a putter, it is expressed as “putting” rather than a putter shot.
2) Approach: When the ball reaches around the green, the approach expresses all shots that send the ball close to the hole cup.
3) Lay Up: When the ball is in a position where it is difficult to send, it is advantageous to send the ball to an advantageous position so that the next shot can be easily.
4) Straight Shot: A shot in which the ball flies in a straight line to the target point.
5) Fade Shot: A shot in which the ball bends from left to right.
6) Draw Shot: A shot in which the ball bends from right to left.
7) Slice: A shot in which the ball bends to the right and is used when it is negative, unlike a fade shot.
8) Hook: A shot in which the ball bends to the left and is used when it is negative, unlike a draw shot.
9) Duff: Use the figurative expression “Duff” when the club’s head hits the ground behind the ball without properly contacting the ball.
10) Topping: When the head of a club does not properly contact the ball and hits the top of the ball, it is called topping.
11) Shank: Shank that fits the heel or hosel part, which is the joint between the head and the shaft, not the center of the club’s head, almost 90 degrees away from the right.
