Bogey, birdie, eagle, dogleg, Cinderella story, shank, slice, duck hook, snap hook, snapper, quacker, bunker, cabbage, fried egg, tin cup, deuce, flop shot, kick, bite, long iron, mulligan, up and down, Oscar Brown, pitch and run, punch shot, sandbagger, wormburner, and so many more... This ridiculous lingo used to tumble out of my father's mouth every Saturday and Sunday evening as he, with kid-like enthusiasm, regaled us with the triumphs and tribulations of his day on the golf course.
While I never took to playing, I do love the game. It's rich with history, tradition and etiquette yet accompanied by some seriously silly outfits and laughably playful jargon. My dad remains modest in dress, but his clubs sure make up for it!
Knit with Koigu's Kersti yarn, the single stranded ribbing is flexible enough to stretch over the large headed woods, while the double stranded tops of the covers are thick and lofty enough to protect them. This 100% merino is durable, resilient and even machine washable, perfect for the most adventurous of golfers... and knitters! Go wild with stripes of Koigu's intensely saturated colors, then top your covers off with a pom-pom, tassel or I-cord loop. Cute! (Happy Father's day, Old Man!) -Laura
