Golfing Terminology brought to you by The Golf Club

Golfing Terminology starting with "M"

Mallet: A type of putter head identified by its broad appearance from front to back when positioned at address.
Match Play
: The original method for playing golf. Playing a round of golf by each individual hole. The player who wins the hole with the fewest strokes is “one-up.” The same player winning the second hole would be “two-up.” Holes that are even are “halved,” and the match score remains the same. Match play is concluded when the player who is “up” is ahead by more than the number of remaining holes. For example, being three holes ahead on the 16th hole. The standard penalty for infractions of the rules for match play is the loss of the hole.
Mickey Mantle
: making a score of 7 on a hole.
Medal play: style of scoring in which the player with the fewest strokes wins. Most professional tournaments are medal play. Also known as "stroke play".
Member's bounce: any favorable bounce of the golf ball that improves what initially appeared to be an errant shot.
Mis-read: when a player takes an incorrect line on a putt.
Mulligan: a do-over, or replay of the shot. It is not allowed by the rules and not practiced in tournaments, but is common in casual rounds in some countries, especially the United States.
Mid-Iron: An iron of the middle range, in terms of length and in distance.
