What comes from Scotland, England and the United States after 500 years of playing golf? Golf lingo. Easier to say than terminology. 

A dialect exceptionally rich and timeless in vocabulary. A tongue, sometimes so foreign a non-golfer may run for the hills screaming, "the aliens have landed!" A language so dear that even some golfers have been known to name their pets "Divot" and "Mulligan."
