Watch the Birdie

golf-ballJust 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.

albatross n. a golf score on a hole representing three strokes under par; also called a triple birdie or double eagle.

condor n. a golf score on a hole representing four strokes under par; also called a triple eagle.
