    GOLF - Gentlemen Only Ladies Forbidden, so help me please. ;)

    HI! :)

    Could you please explain me this sentence about the game, please?

    "[...] just past that bunker that my drive down the fairway usually makes a beeline for [...]"

    I can't play so I don't understand! ;)
    Thanks.

    A bunker is a hazard in golf. If your ball is in the bunker, you have a bit of a problem.

    When someone makes a beeline for something, it means you head straight toward it, quickly.

    The person is referring to a specific bunker, a bunker that his ball usually goes straight to. In other words, he often doesn't do well on this hole, hitting his ball too frequently to this bunker. He personifies his ball a little by suggesting the ball is heading to the bunker on purpose.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Thanks a lot. :)

    "He raised his four iron, its foot pointing at me, wavering in the sunlight."

    Does FOOT mean a clubhead or a grip?
