New meaning for the word "rider"

New meaning for the word "rider"

New meaning for the word "rider"

This may not be new, but it was new to me. It applies to golf, and perhaps only to Australian golf.

A group of senior ladies came into the clubhouse, and the pro asked them how they had played. One said she had 16 "riders", another had 20. The pro, like me, was not familiar with the term, so asked for explanation. One lady said that a "rider" is when you hit the ball far enough to ride to it. So obviously it only works for two players using a cart.

RE: New meaning for the word "rider"

Having worked course maintenance as a teen 20 years ago trust me when I say that every stroke would be a rider to many folks regardless of distance the ball traveled. Between booze, wealth, and the elderly...if grass could talk you'd never need other entertainment.
