For some reason this really gets on my nerves. You see it mostly from the print golf journalists as opposed to the TV guys. I mean, are they too lazy to type out the extra nine letters? Is it to sound hip? At next years Masters are they going to be talking about the extra length added to "Gussie?" Now get off my lawn.

I pointed this out 2 weeks ago when "someone" posted "Shinny" twice in one sentence.  In that case, I think he was trying to make it sound as if he was familiar with the club, maybe trying to "give the impression" he had played there.  

It's text talk.

Isn't a "shinny" a pick up hockey game? Greens should be slick then.

What are the chances that the guy who called it ''Shinny'' twice in one sentence also wears mandals and may or may not have a man bun?

Probability is high.  I repeat, probability is high.  




By the way - played at a public track two weeks ago.  We got a golf cart with a bent front wheel - it had a terrible "shinny" at higher speeds.

Why would anyone pass up the opportunity to say c0ck as much as they want this weekend? I know I won't. My CPS (or cocks per sentence, for the layman) will be at an all-time high.

It sure is: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shinny Essentially a casual pick-up game with no pads/checking. However, I'm not sure how this translates to this weekend..?

Shinnecock Hills was officially founded in 1891.  
Twitter was officially founded in March of 2006.


There is a good probability that "Shinny" is a relatively new term coined by those who prefer to type than talk.

I’ll be that guy.

I wouldn’t call it Shinny out of respect for the native Shinnecock people and their burial lands upon which the course is built.

Not trying to be PC or anything - you can call the course what you want - but I’ll err on the side of being overly respectful vs not.
