Away - "Who's away?" - If you are the one who is farthest from the ball, you will be the first one to play.

Birdie - If you get the ball in the hole with one hit less than the score that you are expected to make, you have hit a birdie.

Bogie -If you get the ball in the hole with one hit more than the score that you are expected to make, you have hit a bogie.
