What does fore mean?

Watch out

Fore is a golf term that is yelled when someone hits an errant shot. It is meant to warn spectators or other people nearby that a ball is travelling their direction.

Since spectators congregate so close to the course and holes are so close together, errant shots often strike unsuspecting people. It is also used to get golfers who are on the green to move when you nuke a shot farther than you expected.


Wow he shanked that one
