We don't do Par, We get Birdies!

The History of a Golf Birdie

As for the name itself, the word birdie originally was the slang word “bird” in the early 1900s. It meant something “wonderful” or “great”, so scoring a birdie in golf was always “something wonderful.” It became popular in New Jersey in 1903 at the Atlantic City Country Club. A birdie is a term for a score of one-under-par. That means that you are on the green in fewer shots than it takes an average golfer.

Scoring a Birdie

To achieve this feat, golf players must take as few putts as possible and avoid making any kind of error while on the greens or teeing off into the fairway. As with anything, if you want to get really good at something, you need to practice, practice, practice. Scoring a birdie isn’t an easy task, The first step is to set up a long, straight shot that hits the target. The last thing you want to do is get a ball off course, which would require additional puts to get it back on track. You should use your best power club that gives your swing more control over where the ball goes.  You’ll want to make a stroke that is just as long and straight but with more power than you’ve ever used before. You’ll also need to use putters that are also great at controlling the ball. The goal is no wasted motion, so using the right tools will help you get the ball into the cup in the least amount of tries. The birdie is well within any golfer’s grasp, even if you’re the greenest amateur out there. Keep practicing your shots and you’ll soon find yourself scoring birdies.
