Golfing Terminology brought to you by The Golf Club
Golfing Terminology starting with "E"
Eagle: a hole played in two strokes under par.
Early Hit: When a player prematurely releases the cocking
of the wrists on the downswing, resulting in a loss of power at impact.
This is also known as "casting from the top."
Effective Loft: The actual loft on a club at impact as
opposed to the loft built into the club. Effective loft is determined
by, among other things, the lie and the position of the hands relative
to the ball at impact.
Explosion: a bunker shot that sends the ball, and accompanying
sand, (hopefully) onto the green. Also known as a "blast".
Extension: The width of the swing as measured by the
target arm on the backswing and the trail arm on the follow-through.
