"Extra shots taken after a bad shot". Even douchey dolfers only do that once a hole. If a fellow golfer does it more than once per hole, kill them. With their own clubs. Should read "extra shot" (only one).

A shot veering right is only a slice if hit by a right-handed golfer. Similarly, if it veers left it is a hook only if hit by a right-handed golfer. The veers are reversed for left-handed golfers, of whom there are quite a few.
