An idea was proposed on the golf course last week by an Aussie Golfer reader that could do this jazzing up a little and I just love it. In ten pin bowling, a run of 3 strikes in a row is called a “turkey” and there’s other terminology for different numbers of strikes ranging from a “wild turkey” to a “sombrero”. You may think that’s strange but no stranger than a “birdie” or “eagle” really is it?
So how about introducing a term for three birdies in a row?! Or four or five?! Or a different term for each! Three-in-a-row could be a “dinglebot”, four could be a “violin” and five could be a “Tiger” (I realise that’s the only one that makes any sense).
What do you think? Dumb idea or not? If so, tell us. If not, have you got any ideas what these should be called? Let’s start a whole new era in golf and propose a few names (email them in or comment below) and I’ll set up a poll here on the website for different phrases and we’ll all democratically decide on a whole new set of golf lingo. Tell your friends, start the conversations and say you were part of bringing something new to golf!
