|Meaning||Golf shot that looks good but you can't find|
An Amelia Earhart is a golf shot that feels and looks good off the club but ends up with a ball that disappears. It comes from the famous pilot who mysteriously vanished in 1937 during a flight over the central Pacific Ocean.
Golf can be a frustrating sport as shots like the Amelia Earhart can have so much promise but end up. The shot could be on the money but taken by the wind or perhaps it caroms off an unforeseen object. Unfortunately, the result of an Amelia Earhart usually is a one-stroke penalty.
"That Amelia Earhart really messed with my mind and I couldn't recover."
