The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

I just started taking disc seriously this year and Im still a littleunfamiliar with all the lingo. I thought it would be a good topic for noobs also to see what different terminology people use for the same meaning

also a big one you'll hear is

Mando: meaning usually a Tree or some other object like a telephone phone that marks out of bounds instead of a path or a creek, etc.
Scooby- A shoot, thrown upside down at the ground that hits and skips under an obstacle.

Your right about the golf lingo though.... a lot of people don't know what par, birdy or bogey are. I learned playing Tiger Woods Golf...
Turnover is a disc thrown flat that turns to the right for RHBH or mirror image if thrown LHBH. Same goes for forehand drives. A turnover is different than an anhyzer in that a turnover is thrown flat and an anhyzer is thrown in an arching motion similar to that of a rainbow. But to be very general turnover is similar to that of an anhyzer.
Par is whatever the hole calls for: either 3, 4, or 5. If you get the hole in that many strokes it is par. Bogie is one over par, double is 2 over, and triple is 3 over par.
Close, but an s-turn, flex shot, helix, swayze (synonymous terms) is a disc that goes right and then comes back left (opposite for LHBH or RHFH). This shot can be performed with an overstable or understable disc.

RHBH: Right Hand Backhand
LHBH: Left Hand Backhand
RHFH: Right Hand Forehand
LHFH: Left hand Forehand

Usually when you hear of disc flight and/or disc flight when people throw, they're usually speaking of RHBH.
For us, shank can mean any kind of screwed up shot, it's not direction specific.
