I definitely mulligan all over the course, not just after the first drive.

When the goal of a round of golf is to win each hole, not have lowest total score is more commonly known as Match Play. Yes Skins does the same thing but Match Play is the best answer and should work on the quiz.

Match should not only be accepted. It should be the answer with skins being an acceptable type-in.

i'm not an expert but doesn't skins differ from matchplay in that if after two holes the first has been drawn and the second is won by player two, under skins rules the score is 0-2 but in matchplay it would be 0.5-1.5. Having said that, in both the aim is to win each hole so I should probably shut up.

Congratulations… this has beaten all the Kardashian quizzes to become the lowest-rated featured quiz.

Let's get those numbers up, then. Golf is exponentially better than the K's (IMO).

>>>Desired area to land your tee shot.

Well, my desire is having it land in the hole, even if I have to buy a round of drinks.

That was the only one I missed. I'd always thought the line from Caddyshack was "You're on 'er, your honor."

That was the only one I missed too. I haven't seen Caddyshack, and although I've been golfing all my life I've never come across that term. I usually hear something like, "It's your tee box."

I always knew the fringe to just be the "edge of the green"

There typically is a specific layer about a foot or two wide that is longer than the grass on the green but shorter than even a fairway cut let alone an intermediate rough cut. Clue gets it right.

The entirety of my golf knowledge comes from wii sports.
