"I got distracted by the cute girl with the weedwipper working back there, terrible throw. I'm over there, you guys hole out. Gonna be a tough 3." (Pretty decent out on a safe line, but 75 feet away yet, long left for a 12' putt for 4)
Weedwipper?? I'm assuming this is what I've always heard of as a weedwhacker? Not trying to be a jerk, I'm just always fascinated with regional differences.

I shared this with a couple buddies and no kidding I got called out for using the term weed-whipper. Buddies use weedwhacker. Might just be me? I have run string trimmers but I have referred to as weed-whippers and operated one many of the last 35 years since I was about 10.

Played with a noob that joined our tag league card for a few holes the other day and he uncorked this winner from about 10ft. out:

"I find the best results when I aim for the base of the pin. It really makes sure I don't overshoot it and improves my score"

Not a bad strategy if you're a horrendously bad putter. Nothing worse than missing an 8' comebacker for bogey!

I used to use one of these as a kid before the invention of the string trimmer. This is what I call a weed whacker. The 300 yard ditch in front of my fathers house required a ton of whacking with this tool.
The gas powered version is a weed eater or string trimmer IMO.

Second thought, I could go for calling this a weed whip cause that thing will whip your ass.

The tool above I've always heard sling blade, and usually weed eater or bushwhacker for the motorized trimmer.

Weed whipper is a good one though.

To be honest, if you miss 8' puts (practically tap in?) the best tactic is to practice getting them in.
