army golf etymology The term stems from the army marching cadence: left-right-left. In other words, a golfer hits one shot to the left, the next to the right, and very few of them straight.
noun: {{en-noun}}
  1. (golf, slang, humorous, derogatory) The situation when a player is spraying the golf ball all over the golf course in different directions.
    • 2002, John P. Borden, The Complete Guide for the Romantically Challenged Male (page 102) I play army golf; right, left, right, left from one side of the course to the other. More than I would like, I hit the ball into shrubs or trees rather than into the generous mowed areas of grass.
