    I have had an inordinate amount of skulled/thinned iron tee shots on par 3s, that tend to sit pin high and give me a decent look for birdie. Considering my first name is Vinnie, my friends have deemed that particular shot the “Vin Scully” (legendary Dodgers Broadcaster)

    Just thought of another random one that my buddies and I use. Whenever we jam a putt home, we call it a Quentin Jammer (former UT Longhorn and SD Charger cornerback) lol

    We call a long drive a 'two cheeker', as in, "That was a two-cheeker."
    A putt on the lip is a Cuban. It needed one more revolution.
    A lost ball is a 404.

    If you leave a putt short, but “dead in the hole”, we call it a Rockefeller.

    Most of ours are in regards to putting:
    Hammer Hands ( Or los manos de los hammers)- a person who hits putts way past the hole
    Shrimp D**k- a putt left well short

    Then we have this guy Mark who thinks he gives the best reads on putts (they are actually often pretty good) but he never makes anything himself. Those are Mark Reads and they have been a running joke for some time.

    Years ago, there was a golfer in town named Buddy Buchanan. He was known for giving himself putts well outside gimme range. It became common for guys in our group to say "I took a Buddy Buke on that hole." Or, "I had a Buddy Buke bogey. "

    The "grinder"......in our big 4 man team games- 4 net pars or better on a hole.

    Lately the terms to use are fairway genie when we hit a drive that manages to stay on the fairway after a hook/slice turns into a fade/draw

    A “Fabby” bet is for Fabulous Merchandise. Winner, instead of cash, gets to choose something from the pro shop that the loser buys (typically a shirt, not a Scotty Cameron!)

    The advantage is you can wear the shirt as a sort of wearable trophy in future rounds to gloat.

    For the guy in our group that has a succession of putts lip-out, we say he has liprosy.

    I hit a particularly solid drive down the middle and I commented that I had "Nutted that one". Buddy steps up and flails one left into the woods and said that he had "Neutered that one". Now poor drives illicit the "neutered" comment.

    A "toilet ringer" in our family is when you hit one of those putts that roll half way around the lip of the cup but doesn't drop. Like water swirling around the toilet.

    Maybe the thread should be sophomoric phrases/words?
