During National Golf Month in August, golfers are encouraged to share their experience and bring new golfers to the game. Be a mentor to a new golfer. Introduce them to the fairway and the hazards. Help them keep score and don’t be too rough. They might be a little green, but at the end of the month they just might be on par! (nationalcalendarday.com)

I learned a new golf term last weekend — greenie. While playing in a tournament at Marshfield, Ted Noirfalise said I had a greenie which I had never heard the term. A greenie is a closest to the pin on a par 3 hole within the group you are playing with. Greenies are a side game added to existing games or played by itself.
