Worm Burner

What does worm burner mean?

Very low golf shot

Worm burner is a term that describes a golf shot hit very low to the ground, which comes from hitting the top of the ball. The name comes from the trajectory of the shot that is so low that it is burning the worms in the ground.

A worm burner is a poorly hit shot because it comes off the club poorly, which makes it more uncontrollable. Also, the shot doesn't travel far and is more susceptible to hazards. The shot is also known as "quail high."
