Ok, I need a crash course in GOLF !!! uhh terms
I have an unexpected chance to interview for an executive level position w/ a large REIT. The CEO and CFO I am meeting w/ are huge golf guys, like crazy for golf like we are for guns I guess.
Anyway, I will not be working in the same state w/them so its not like I am going to pinched into a tight spot having to prove my BS from what I say in the interview.
I know Golf will come up during the meeting and from what others have told me, it is actually a huge factor if they like/hire you, I know crazy right.
So here is the deal, I know nothing about golf other than Tiger Woods likes lots of babes, and he lives just down the road that's it, nothing else. I tried watching the Masters for 3 days but jeez I was falling asleep every 5 mins.
Bogey, birdy, eagle wtf ??? I know par is like avg and that is 72 right ?
What are good clubs ? like the HK of clubs ?? any forums I can goto to study up on this stuff. Just enough to BS for 3 mins if I am backed into a corner. I already know the names of local courses. Thanks
Par is equal to whatever the Hole is rated at.
Bogey is +1 over par
Birdie is -1 under par
Eagle is -2 under par
Double bogey is +2 over par
I haven't played since my dad made me in high school so I can't tell you anything about clubs.
A hook goes left and slice goes right. Fairway is the nice pretty grass in the middle that you want to keep the ball in.
The Rough is the crud on the outside you don't want to hit into. Sand trap is just that, a trap of sand to catch the ball. The green is the flat grass surface that keeps the hole.
Gas golf carts can flat out fly and jump hills when set up right. Electric carts are usually loaned to non-members. LOL
