|Meaning||A golf shot that takes a chunk out of the ground|
A fat shot is a golf term that refers to a shot where the head of the club hits the ground and makes a divot. It is also commonly known as a chunk.
A fat shot comes from a golfer's misjudgment of the ball's placement on the ground and the length of his swing. It is similar to a shank since it is usually a poor shot.
"Wow, that was a fat shot."
"Yeah, you're lucky to stay on the fairway with that swing."
