Around the gilds?
Somebody please shed light on what "around the gilds" means in the following:
"Now the first clue is if you see your playing partner a little blue around the gilds then you can be rest assured that he is not breathing and he’s tight and he’s tense and he’s probably not going to have very good tempo."
(David Leadbetter's talking about breathing for tempo in golf swing)
Re: Around the gilds?
I suspect that you've come across a typing error. As far as I'm aware, it should be 'a little blue around the gills'. It relates to how fish breathe and on humans it refers to the area around the face and neck (not certain about the exact location, but that's more or less correct).
Hope this helps,
