Just about everyone knows that in the game of golf, one shot under par equals a birdie and two under par is an eagle; often referred to as a double-birdie. But did you know there are words for the rarer and almost impossible triple- and quadruple-birdies? Yes, that’s right – a quadruple birdie would represent a hole-in-one on a par five hole. And I’m fortunate when I can just hit the ball off the tee.
