A squirrel is a golf term for a tee shot that flies into the rough. It is often the result of a golfer's shank.
The term comes from the phrase "with the squirrels," which refers to a ball that ends up where the squirrels usually roam. It lands off the fairway in the rough, in the trees, or even OB.
