It turns out Monday is World Emoji Day, which means there is now officially a day for everything, including Pithy Blog Post Day later in the year (not really. Actually, maybe, who knows.). But it's a fitting entry point to discussing emojis, because there is one of those for everything as well: joy, remorse, utter bewilderment. The spectrum of emotions one can convey in digital form neatly maps the range one experiences on the golf course. Which brings up the inevitable question of what certain emojis mean in a golf context. That's where we come in with our handy glossary.
😯: You're playing the club champ in the first round.
🤔: Guy says he's a 16 but he hits it 320 off the tee.
🍀 : It bounced back in the fairway!
☠️: There's water there.
👆: One up.
👇: One down
🖕: Why would you even ask me that?
🤐: If anyone asks, we were home sick.
😴: Wire-to-wire winner.
🙈: Your playing partner's reverse pivot.
💩: Your back nine.
🙏 : Here's hoping we didn't hit anyone.
🤑: When you win the closeout, press, AND the junk.
🍗: We need to see you putt that.
🎲: We can try to get on without a tee time, but it's iffy. . . .
