The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

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.

"Everyone In Here Is Your Friend" -   :)

I like "Thank you Treesus!" and "Arboreal Golf" the best.... but i think i say "Crap. Yanked it" and "Nice up" the most often.
We call that one branch that stick out the ninja branch.
I enjoy meow-ing at people that i now have enough arm to get where they're going and don't get it there
"dead duck" when someone throws a high shaky throw.
"Nice Run"
"Get it" when someone makes a run at the basket with thier shot
"get legs" someone shot comes up short but slides to the basket
"settle" shot lands in the cirle and lays down.
"Shankapotomus" used for about any bad shot.
" if it wasn't for that tree... it would have gone in !!!!!" is what i hear alot of times. Usually coming out of my own mouth.
A timeless favorite
"Can your husband come out to play?"

Associated with High altitude shanks
"Serve a meal on that flight?"

Needs no explanation
"Nice up...Cindy Flopper"

Perfect for weak throws on short holes
"Wow....another throw like that and you'll be there"
"It was lookin' good 'til you let it go"

"You're still out"

"Goes the wrong way, goes a long way"

"F.I.N.I." (saying to myself on some putts where a solid miss could have some bad, very bad consequences)
You forgot about "welcome to Birdie Town!" and the Birdie Dance
Treenied or Treejected when somebody hits a tree...

"Bang some chains!" for any shot that looks like it might do just that...

but the most common one I hear begins w/ an "F" and ends in a "K"...
I am a big fan of Treejus. Often when "Thank You TREEjus" it is the first time others I am playing with have heard it. So then I go onto explain that we are in Treejus holy sanctuary (the DG cousres) where the trees, floral and fauna come together for our baptism into the church of the freesbitarians. Sometimes treejus giveth and and sometimes he taketh away...

I am by no mean religious but more spiritual and this seems to be the closest thing to religion I can invest time and energy into....
when someone yells " skip !" and skip in our group says "what!"
Some of my favorite things to say:
"Throwin' Circles" taken from Wade as an encouraging remark to shooting well during a round or after a really good shot, or to pump you up before the round to say I am gonna shoot really well today.
I also like to say: "Nestle." I say "nestle" a lot during a round because by telling the disc to nestle in the air it could be a shot that isnt quite what you wanted but by saying nestle you can either be saying nestle (aka get down) or be saying nestle right ( if the shot is coming in too hot on the right and you want it to be going left) and vice versa saying nestle left (if the shot is coming in too hot on the left and you want it to kick or sit down and roll to the right). I have honestly found that although soundwaves do not directly affect the flight of the disc, the soundwaves based on the tone of your voice do affect the quantum field so by yelling these things at the disc about 50% of the time the disc will do exactly what you are telling it to do...straight up, believe it or not.

One thing that my brother says that I think is absolutely rediculous refers to after he or someone else hits a deuce: "The birdie factory of _____(insert name) is officially open. Union labor workers have resolved their labor disputes and will be making brand new _____(insert year) birdies.
