The Golfer's Dictionary

A dictionary of popular golf terms from the perspective of an amateur golfer, if you have any suggestions then feel free to get in touch and I'll add them.

Entries

Marker

A small token placed behind the ball (away from the hole) on the green so it may be cleaned. Examples of this include:

  • Stud from a glove or hat
  • Tee peg
  • Coin (watch for tramps or opponents picking it up)

Mixed Foresome

A group of four golfer's, typically comprising of two grounds for divorce.

Mulligan

A provisional shot played in the event the first ball landed in a hazard and maybe lost. If the first ball is determined "lost" then the Mulligan is taken along with a one shot penalty.

As we all know, a good marker knows how to correct for Mulligans.
