Below the Hole
Definition: "Below the hole" describes the position of a golf ball in relation to the cup, or hole, once the ball is on the green.
If the green slopes, or if the hole is cut in a position on the green that slopes, being below the hole with your approach shot or lag putt is the desired position.
Below the hole means that your ball is positioned such that you will be putting uphill to the cup. Uphill putts are generally easier than downhill putts, so below the hole us much preferable to above the hole.
Examples: The Golf Guide positioned his ball below the hole, which leaves an uphill putt for par.

Definition: The grass of choice for putting greens in any climate in which it can be grown. Bentgrass is characterized by very thin blades which grow densely and can be very closely mown, resulting in a felt-like smoothness to the putting surface. Bentgrasses are tolerant of cold, but not too fond of heat. Many courses in hotter climates use a different type of grass, although some spend a lot of time and money keeping bentgrass alive (some even install sub-green cooling systems).
Also Known As: Bent
Alternate Spellings: Bent grass


Definition: Bermudagrass is a common turf used by courses in warm, tropical climates and is most common in the southern U.S. Bermudagrasses - Tifsport, Tifeagle and Tifdwarf are common varieties - have thicker blades than bentgrass, resulting in a grainier appearance to putting surfaces. The grain of bermudagrass greens can influence putts, so golfers on such greens must be aware when they are putting with, against or across the grain.
Also Known As: Bermuda
Alternate Spellings: Bermuda grass

Best At Something
Definition: Best At Something is a points-based betting game that can be played right alongside any other type of match in which golfers are playing their own balls throughout (as opposed to alternate shot, for example).
Along with counting strokes, Best At Something requires that each player count points. Points are awarded (or subtracted) for different things throughout the round. Have the most points at the end of the round, win the bet.
In its most common form, 1 point is awarded for any of these accomplishments:
• Fairway hit (it might be stipulated that woods must be used to get a point)
• Green in regulation
• 1-putt green
A single point would be subtracted for:
• 3 putts or more on a green
• Hitting into a hazard
• Lost ball
• Out of bounds
Want to make it more complicated? Tally each category separately. Those leading the positive point categories win from the other players; those leading the negative point categories owe the other players.
Best Ball
Definition: Along with the scramble, "best ball" is one of the most popular golf tournament formats.
Best ball can be played using 2-, 3- or 4-person teams. Each player on the team plays his or her own golf ball throughout the round, and on each hole the low score - or "best ball" - of the group serves as the team score. Player A gets a 5, B gets a 4, C gets a 6, D gets a 6, then the team score for that hole is 4, because the low score of the group was B's 4.
Best ball is usually played as stroke play with the total score added up at the end of the round. It can be played as match play, but best-ball match play with more than 2-person teams results in a lot of halved holes.
When using 3- or 4-person teams, it's almost imperitave to apply handicaps so that the weaker players will be able to contribute.
A 2-person best ball match play competition is also known as Four Ball.
"Best ball" can also refer to a competition in which a single player plays match play against a 2- or 3-person team playing best ball. That variation is good for a low-handicapper taking on a team of higher handicappers.
Handicap allowances for Best Ball competitions can be found in the USGA Handicap Manual, Section 9-4 (www.usga.com).
Also Known As: With 2-person teams, "better ball." With 2-person teams in match play, "four ball."

Best Nines
Definition: Best Nines is a betting game that is more commonly called Nassau. It's essentially three tournaments (or bets) in one: the front nine, back nine and 18-hole scores all count as separate tournaments or bets. See Nassau for explanation and examples.
Also Known As: Nassau, or 2-2-2 when referring to a $2 Nassau

Better Ball
Definition: A best ball competition in which the teams are comprised of two players. When played as match play, better ball is another name for Four Ball.
The two players on the team each play their own ball throughout the round. The low score, or better ball, among the two on each hole is the team's score for that hole.
Also Known As: Four Ball, when played as match play.

Biarritz (Biarritz Green)
Definition: A biarritz, or biarritz green, is a green that features a deep gully bisecting its middle. The gully, which is manicured the same as the rest of the green, usually runs from side-to-side, but sometimes runs from front to back. A biarritz is especially challenging when the hole is cut on one side of the gully and your ball is sitting on the other side, requiring a long putt that must travel down the gully then up its other side to reach the hole. Some golfers choose to pitch over the gully rather than putt through it.
The name "biarritz" come from the golf course in France where the first-known biarritz was constructed, Biarritz Golf Club. The club's La Phare Course is home to the original biarritz.
Big Dog
Definition: A slang term for a driver. It's part of the expression, "Time to let the big dog eat," which is sometimes heard with a golfer who has not been using driver finally pulls it out of the bag.
Also Known As: Driver, big stick
Examples: The Golf Guide used his big dog on the home hole.

Bingo Bango Bongo
Definition: Bingo Bango Bongo is a points-based game that can be played by any number of players, from two up.
In Bingo Bango Bongo, three types of achievements are rewarded with a point. The first player in a group to get his ball on the green gets a point (bingo). The player in the group whose ball is closest to the pin once all balls are on the green gets a point (bango). And the player in the group who is first to hole out gets a point (bongo).
Add up the points at the end of the game, high points wins.
Bingo Bango Bongo gives weaker players a chance to earn points because what matters is being first at something. For example, all members of the group tee off on a par-4. The player who hit the worst drive (farthest from the hole) plays first, and so has the first shot at winning the bingo point.
So, too, with closest to the pin. The best players in the group are likely to be on the green in two (or three on a par-5), while the weakest players might be chipping. The closest-to-the-pin point is only earned once all balls are on the green, so the player who has hacked it up the fairway may be sitting just off the green and chipping - giving that player a great chance to pick up the bango point.
Because of these factors (and because the first person putting will be the one farthest from the hole), strict etiquette must be enforced. The player who is away always plays first.
For a variation, throw into the mix that any player winning all three points on a hole wins double points.
Also Known As: Bingle Bangle Bungle


Definition: A score on an individual hole that is one stroke below par. On a par-4, a score of 3 is a birdie; on a par-5, a score of 4 is a birdie; on a par-3, a score of 2 is a birdie.
Common Misspellings: Birdey, birdy


Definition: The word 'bite' is most often heard as a command shouted at the ball in flight by a golfer who wants the ball to hit the green and stop. A ball hit with backspin will have "bite." Bite can be contrasted with "release." When a ball releases, it hits the green and continues rolling forward. When a ball bites, it hits the green and stops quickly without rolling much at all.

Definition: Also known as musclebacks, blades are a type of iron that has a full, smooth back (as opposed to a cavity back) and a thin topline - hence the monicker. (The topline, by the way, is what you see as you are standing at address looking down at the top of the iron - literally, the top line.) The weighting of blades is concentrated behind the center of the clubface, resulting in a smaller sweet spot. Blades are usually forged and are many better players prefer them because they believe blades allow them to more easily work the ball and feel softer at impact.
"Blade" can also refer to a type of putter that is heel-weighted, heel-shafted and features just a thin clubface without any flange.
