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.
