What's your favorite disc golf phrase?

One of mine is "Nice Up!" because of its ambiguity. You can really mean it, when someone saves a par using a superb second shot. Or, it can be sarcastic, when someone's putt behaves like an upshot, instead of going in.


"In Jail" to mean stuck inside so many tree branches there seems to be no way out.

"Bogey Band!" - when someone hits the band on a discatcher
"Nice rip" - same connotations as nice up
"Bird Dog" - for a birdie shot
"Hey man, there's a tree there" - obvious reasons

We also have pretty ruff...ruff. We call it the badlands
I often find myself saying "nice up" or "good run," and although I'm with Terry on the sarcastic potential of the statements, I'm usually trying to be encouraging. I like to say "in jail" too. I hate to hear (but sometimes don't mind saying) "that would have been great for the other location."

Last but not least, I have to credit my good friend David for pointing out that the phrase "tear it up out there"--which I also say often--is quite specific to our sub-culture and quite alien to most others.
I dont think its my favorite disc golf phrase but when i play with the buddies and were all having " one of those days" its fun to yell DONKEY at the top of your lungs as your buddy is getting ready to shoot normally during a run up. It seems to help the shankopotomus. But if you earn it off the tee pad id say nice pull.
"thumber? I hardly know her" Just about every time someone throws a thumber
how about "i should have thrown my other driver"
Get In!
Greg Bagthrower-"Don't say NICE while my disc is in the air!"
"Earnie" - a hard birdie putt, a putt you have to earn, or opposite of a "gimmie".

"Worm Burner" - A drive that flies flat into the ground.

"Shoot the Moon" - A drive that has more height than distance.

"Playing like Sonny Bono" - When a player seems to be hitting a lot of trees

"Nice shootin, Tex!" - When a player makes a GOOD putt.
Nice phrases, guys, this is fun!
for anyone who seems to be hitting a lot of trees my friends and I often say in a low goofy voice "(insert name) FRIEND OF TREES!" or if someone hits that one branch sticking out that shouldn't be hit we say something to the effect of "Its like yao ming" or shaq. Also whenever we hear someone grunt or make some noise during a drive we repeat the noise and say "Thats how you get the power. You make the noise." That though is mostly to make fun of other players on the course... kinda mean when I think about it.

One friend is notorious for not always getting his drive to turn over shouting "OH NO" and running off comically.

Another one being "sit sit sit SIT" or "CHAINS" if it looks like a shot that could make it.

My favorite is one that everyone does when they have an immediate groan after there throw because they could feel it go bad.
