030 Putt-putt Golf

(Sounds of kids laughing and playing)

Y: 今天我和Patrick打高尔夫球。

P: I'm teaching Yang, well, I'm trying to teach Yang Chen, how to play golf.

Y: Are you sure this is a golf course?

P: This place is great! What were you expecting?

Y: Well, I was hoping to meet Tiger Woods. 这里都是小孩儿,简直就是个游乐场啊。

P: It's sort of like an amusement park. This is putt putt golf, or, just putt putt.

Y: Putt putt, 听起来好可爱。

P: Yeh, for children such as yourself, Yang Chen. So anyway, putt means miniature golf, little golf.

Y: 噢,迷你高尔夫球。So it's not a real golf course.

P: So, Yang Chen, if we went to a real golf course we would be the worst players on the course.

Y: No, you are the worst player.

Y: Oh god, 欺负小孩子. Shame on you.

P: ...especially you, but here we play with little kids so we can kick their butts!

Y: Oh, god, 欺负小孩,shame on you.

P: I do it all the time. Stop complaining and grab a club. Let's tee off.

Y: Tea? 喝茶?

M: No, you spell this tee T-E-E, it's a small peg that holds the golf ball. Tee off means to start a round of golf. You can also use tee off in everyday life when you start something.

Y: T-e-e, 就是高尔夫球的球座。 Tee off就是开始。我们的老板昨天teed off the staff meeting with a great speech, don't you think?

P: You don't have to拍他的马屁. He can't hear you. Let's just play putt putt and kick some little kids' butt butt.

Y: Let's tee off.
