|Meaning||Tee shot into the rough|
A squirrel is a golf term for a tee shot that flies into the rough. It is often the result of a golfer's shank.
The term comes from the phrase "with the squirrels," which refers to a ball that ends up where the squirrels usually roam. It lands off the fairway in the rough, in the trees, or even OB.
"That squirrel on the 17th hole really cost you."
