Unique golf phrases/words that you use...

A thread here using the terms Percy and Lammy for Persimmon and Laminated woods got me thinking of terms my friends and I have used over the years.



My favorite is the "Maltbie". My friends and I adopted this in honor of Roger Maltibe and his win in the 1976 memorial. It was any bad shot/swing that ended up in great shape. It comes from his shot on 17 that bounced off the metal gallery stake well left of the green and ended up on the green about 20 feet from the hole. It then morphed into sort of an insult when ever somebody did hit a good shot, implying that it was just luck....



The shot in question: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MPl4CKwRYEA



Another came from a local guy in our hometown. My buddy and I were playing with him one day, and he had a straight in 2-3 footer for par. He misses it about a cup to the right and yells out, "**** it, I thought I was going to pull that one!!". We had to turn our backs and try hard not to crack up. This then turned into the snide comment we would use with each other when ever we missed a putt to the right, "I guess you thought you were going to pull that one"....



Any similar turns of phrases that that our fellow GolfWRXers have come up with??

    "MULCHIE"



    My buddies and I were playin in Myrtle Last year and we were at Tidewater on the signature par 3 12th, nicknamed 'The Wishing Well'



    I stuck one pretty close, and my player partner who loves to run his mouth, finally shuts up. He steps up and pulls one long and into the bushes at the left of the green, and the ball settles a couple feet behind a small bush in the mulch.



    We were playing birdies, sandies and greenies & skins that day for some small $.......he gets to his ball, basically chunks it out of the mulch, it hits the top of the little bush and kicks over towards the hole for a tap-in par. The first ever 'Mulchie.'



    Not only did I not win the skin for that hole, my greenie was canceled out by his freaking mulchie!!



    He's not affectionately called 'McMulchie' by myself and the other guy on the trip.

    "Mulchie", that's a good one.



    When my buddy and I were playing down south with a guy I got to know from Georgia, we were using the "Maltbie" phrase. on just about every other shot, really going at each other...



    This guy we were playing with was pretty laid back and quiet, and at first doesn't say anything. Then on the back nine says in the thickest southern accent I have just about heard "What the **** is a Maltbie?"

    My hometown buddies and I play double points for "Barkies" when we get together, in addition to stuff like birdies, sandies and greenies. A Barkie is par or better on a hole in which you hit a tree.

    When I play with my buddies in a scramble or 4 ball and someone hits it close, we encourage the next player to hit a "Liberace". That's when you put it inside your partner.

    Your post put a grin on my face Mike.



    These have popped up from time to time. Caution -- they had better be GOOD pals before trying them out - LOL.



    1) Shot into the trees (especially when a guy gets in there and seems to hack in there for a few strokes) -- On the next tee box you say, "Is it arbor day?"



    2) When a partner floats a stinker off the tee on a par 3 say, "Good thing we're here and not on the 17th in Scottsdale."



    3) When the guy in your group walks around with extra golf balls in his front pockets, ask him, "Are those Pro-V's or are you just happy to see me?"
    A cynic sees the cost of everything
    and the value of nothing.

    Played with a couple guys I'm decent friends with about a month ago and whenever you hit one mediocre but it still ended up decently and "In Play" they called it a Jimmie Roberts. Thought it was pretty clever. Not as good as the Liberace though

    I play these with my buddies, we call them "woodies". Trying my best to work in a "woodie" joke with that "Liberace" quote, but am afraid it would be to off color:)

    We have this one guy in our group that is the funniest guy, always talking crap. The other day he's putting and rams his ball way by the hole and is still out, as he's walking to his his ball he says "FISO". I look at him as say "FISO?", he says "yeah, F$:@ I'm Still Out!"

    Same guy, I hit a wedge that sails the green and looks at me and says " that shot was all LOFT" I say "what?". He says "Lack Of F:$@ing Talent"

    I agree with Duff and others - Liberace is the winner.



    Will still add a couple of things my pards and I say:



    "Man, you should be working at the Mustang (Ranch)." - the player has been hooking the ball over and over



    "Millerizing" - one of players in group is constantly making comments after everyone else's shots



    As I said, not nearly as good as Liberace. But worthy of a chuckle maybe.

    My friends and I have something like the 'Liberace' except you just urge the other player to 'stick it inside me' after you've hit a shot in close to the pin.



    Successfully doing so is known as 'the double stuff'.



    We did, on one rare occassion, execute the 'quadruple stuff', with the first player hitting it around 10 feet and the other 3 shots getting sequentially closer to the hole.



    I'm just warped, I guess.



    In the spirit of the sandy and the mulchie, we also have the 'barky'. Pretty self explanatory.

    6 (on a par 4) is a Michael Duble.

    7 is a Gretzky.

    8 is a snowman.

    9 is a "shop teacher" with one finger bent down as if it has been cut off.

    10 is a moose.

    11 is a "spike" for the non-hunters it is a deer with one spike.

    Here are a few I have heard and used..



    When you back it up off the green you " Tore the ears off of it."

    When you leave the ball just short of the hole on a putt thats a Castro cause u only need a couple more revolutions

    If you pick up on a hole its LOIBIP ( loss of interest ball in pocket)

    And my 85 year old grandmother used FUBAR when she played her ladies day events and didnt have a favorable lie.
