THE SEVEN DEADLY SINS OF GOLF

Apart from Missing the Globe (failing to hit the ball at all) golf's seven sins are said to be:

Topping: striking the top o fthe ball with the bottom of the club.
Duffing: hitting the ground before striking the ball.
Sclaffing: skidding the club over the grass before it hits the ball.
Heeling and Toeing: hitting the ball with either of the edges of a club.
Slicing: hitting the ball in an arc that curves to the right.
Pulling: when the ball is hooked to the left by the club.


The clock, not the steam engine, is the key-machine of the modern industrial age.
Lewis Mumford (1895-1990)
