Sample Sentences & Example Usage

    I kept the ball in front of me pretty decent today, and didn't scare too many chances at bogey, but my main thing was obviously I putted great and was seeing the lines today. If I can putt like that every day, I would probably have a few more wins.

  3. Thailand Miguel Jimenez:

    I am disappointed to make bogey on the last, but... you're always happy when you're under par - and the more under par you are, the happier you are, i have the flu, and I'm very bunged up and slept terribly last night, but apart from that I'm fine.

  4. Michael Hoey:

    We had 10 or 11 holes with not much wind, which was an advantage teeing off early, i hit the ball well, and it suits me that there's a bit of length off the tee ; you can carry a few corners and reach the par fives in two. It has been a long time since I had a bogey-free card.

  5. Wisconsin Germany Martin Kaymer:

    In 2010 I didn't make many mistakes, I really avoided the big numbers, if you miss the fairways once in a while, you have to accept that that bogey is not a bad score. It's very easy to make double bogey or even worse... in those bunkers, you can have some very strange lies, a strange stance in there.
