|Meaning||A golf hole with a fairway that has a bend to the right|
Dogleg right is a golf hole with a fairway that bends to the right in order to obscure the green from the tee. The term comes from the resemblance of the bend of the fairway to a dog's leg.
A dogleg right course forces a golfer to be more strategic in how he hits the ball cince it's more challenging than a direct line-of-sight hole. The term may also appear as "dogleg left" for a hole bending to the left instead of the right. If it bends twice, it is called "double dogleg."
"He double bogeyed the dogleg right on the back nine."
