Golfers at every skill level have likely had to yell out, “Fore!” at some point during their playing career. The warning dates back nearly 140 years, at which time it essentially translated to “look out ahead.” As one might assume, golfers today use the term to caution any person in the immediate area that that an errant ball has taken flight.
First-time golfers must learn what to do when they hear someone shout fore, and when they themselves should make the call. In the event of someone else calling fore, a person should cover their head and face while searching the air for the ball. The odds of such a shot actually hitting another player are very low, but it is always best to err on the side of safety.
On the other hand, a player should call fore once the ball begins to travel toward a neighboring fairway. If a player immediately loses sight of the ball or feels no players are in immediate danger, he or she can make the call once. If a shot is clearly headed toward a highly populated part of the course, an individual should repeatedly make the call until the ball has landed.
