Thread: Golfing Terminology

  1. #1

    Default Golfing Terminology

    Just thought i'd add a little post to explain some the terminology used in games for people a little less familiar with it. post below and add more that i might have missed.

    Shots:
    nalby(s) = Nice Albatross(es)!
    ne(s) = Nice Eagle(s)!
    nb(s) = Nice Birdie(s)!
    np(s) = Nice Putt!(s) or Nice Par!(s)
    Na(s)= Nice Approach(es)!
    ns = Nice Shot!
    Nt= Nice touch.
    Nace = Nice Ace! (Hole-in-One)
    Nice Hat! = Nice Bogey! (sarcastic)
    Turtle = Impact left slightly late to have a sharp shank to the left, with power boost on full power mode/power mode.
    Rabbit = Impact hit slightly early to have a sharp shank to the right, with power boost on full power mode/power mode.
    PI = Perfect Impact
    Homing Shot - When a pin is hit with enough spin (Often super backspin, but not always) for it to burn its way back to the hole and with some luck actually go in. ( Number of homing points = 20 + (10*number of homing shot) + 30 for pin shot.
    Riser - When the pin is hit with Super Top Spin (nothing else) the ball will climb up the pin and fall back in (with some luck). How high it climbs depends on the spin and force of impact. (20 Points + 50 Points if flag ball)
    Air Riser - When a Rising shot (see above) is done without the ball touching the ground. From your current lie, straight on to the pin. (20 Points+ 50 points if Flag Ball)
    Spiral - When the pin is hit Super Sidespin, the ball will Corkscrew its way around the pin towards the hole. Spiral effect takes precedence over Homing and Rising. (50 points)

    Spin:
    SS = Super Spin
    STS = Super Top Spin
    SBS = Super Backspin
    SSS = Super Sidespin
    STSS = Super Topspin-Sidespin
    SBSS = Super Backspin-Sidespin
    BS = Backspin

    Other:
    AHH FAILED HOMER!!!111one! = Megaman80
    nw = Nice Win!
    gg = Good Game!
    gga = Good Game all!
    gl = Good Luck!
    gla = Good Luck all!
    gw = Great win!
    LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL = general utterance ( la OthersGirl).
    ul = Unlucky!
    wp = well played
    wpa = well played all
    ty/thx/tx/tu = Thank you!
    Pull = Hitting your ball left of your bounds
    Hook= Even worse than a pull, more left
    Push = Hitting your ball right of your bounds
    Slice = Even worse than a push, more right

    Non-Golf
    lol = Laugh out Loud (although most people say this, without doing any of the sort)
    lmao = Laugh my *backside* off
    rofl = Rolling on the floor laughing
    roflmao = rolling on the floor laughing my *backside* off.
    ffs = For ****'s sake!
    brb = Be Right back!
    FTW = For the win!
    FTL = For the lose .
    FTMFW = For the MF-ing win.
    Cba = Can't be asked
    Cbf = Can't be .... (you get the idea.)
    DW = Don't worry.
    FU = (Take a guess) off.
    yw = Your welcome.
    Epic fail = fried_blowney(so he says, but he really is awesome) A fail, of epic proportions, usually referring to someones skills/lack of them or to somethhing they did.. badly.
    ule1bm = ugly luck everyone but me (ty PinkTaco)
    TWSS = Thats what she said!

    Playing in the OT2 Crazy Cup tournament last week with four people participating in the round...

    All four of us get a par on a relatively easy hole (DOH!). I typed in:

    [Kid64] : nps

    That got a couple lol's.

    lol yeah that will always do it. Was it the par 3 hole 3 because with no backspin we got almost all pars as well and usually it is a simple hole

    Default Re: Golfing Terminology

    Some folks use the following (Inter was the first I saw use it):

    wp = well played
    wpa = well played all

    And I think you forgot one of the basic ones (though not golf-related):

    ty/tx/thx = thank you/thanks

    Also, I use "gj" for good job sometimes but I haven't seen too many other folks use it. Sometimes bored with nb and gj seems to be recognized better than wp. Why can't Clap Hanz give us a longer text box? ???

    Default Re: Golfing Terminology

    and not golf related but some of us older non-texting peeps (like myself) did not know this one:

    lmao= laughing my a** off

    and my sons favorite word:

    ROFL=rolling on the floor, which goes with lmao, (laughing my a** off)

    but not to be confused with, or if you want to take the time to put in all the letters,

    ROTFLMAO.... which is completely differently spelled than ROFL.....

    but who is going to try to "correct" grammer that is not grammer in the first place????

    lol

    (laugh out loud)

    I think along with the terminology there should be a thread on etiquette: what to say and when depending on the situation. I had a guy get very upset at me for saying "ul" when he and some others were bogeying some holes where they had lips or balls roll past the green down hills on Peaks. The unfortunate thing was I wasn't missing and hardly anyone else birdied. They were level 15 and 16 so I thought they were just having a bad game. I don't want to go over the entire situation but it could've been handled better during the game; fortunately, we resolved it afterwards.

    Either way, since this is golf and not a first-person shooter, I'd say it's a good thing to be considerate of how others are playing and where they're coming from. If you know them, all's fair; if you don't, don't say anything but positive things if you're up big. By the way, I now often say "tough green" or "tough pin" (if it's warranted, of course) instead of "ul" when I can help it.

    that is weird they got bent outta shape.... I consider "ul" to be an act of kindness towards someone who got a bogey, or even a par if they are in the lead....

    anyone should know that it is an act of kindness.

    I cannot stand those who whine the whole time about their own personal game.... >

    Annoys me to all extremes....!!!!
