Jennifer Zelazny April 6, 2005 2 Comments You should know by now, I enjoy random thoughts and factoids. Today, my morning for fun read led me to finally realize what Yahoo! stands for: Yet Another Hierarchical Officious Oracle. I love information like that, and I have to say the rest of that article was pretty interesting too. My friend Doug recently bought a new set of irons and with it he got an “A” wedge. My father refers to it as a “gap” wedge, but why it is not called a “G” wedge is beyond me. Not knowing this information was bothering me so I finally found what “A” stood for: Attack wedge (definition, source). (This was bothering me much like when something slips your mind and you drive yourself crazy until it randomly re-enters your conciousness.) The “A” wedge mystery then also led me to ask, “why do we yell ‘fore’ on the golf course when a ball is going towards someone? I finally answered this question too!

Approach makes sense, but Attack sounds more like my style 😉 Reply Leave a Reply Cancel ReplyYour email address will not be published.
