Did you know a 'looper' is just another name for a caddie? That a finnigan is like a mulligan, only better? That a greenkeeper may also be a golf course superintendent but that a superintendent is not always a greenkeeper? That clubs called woods are made of metal? And that irons are not made of iron at all?
Sometimes the language of golf seems more daunting than the sport itself! Learn how to talk a great game of golf with the help of Golf A to Z. From the pro shop to tees, through fairways and greens, and back to the clubhouse, this all-inclusive glossary explains more than 1,000 terms and phrases commonly used on and around the golf course, written in clear, everyday language that is accessible for everyone, from the armchair golfer to the seasoned golf veteran.
Divided into five chapters that follow the path players take in a round of golf, Golf A to Z defines everything from the simplest terms (stroke, hole, and round of golf) to the most obscure (Sherman tank, in the log cabin, and chili dip).
