of certain golf courses. Where good scores

ass A poorly struck shot that is "high
and stinky." Usually applied to a popped-up
drive that is higher than it is long. An

that was a good shot."
- According to the rules of golf, equipment
is "anything that can be thrown, broken,

trees or other overgrown terrain; or over
the edge of a natural or artificially elevated
area; or below the surface of any body of
water, whether moving or impounded."

hold a ball for another player to hit.
practice drives against a backboard.
