What does a person say when they hit the ball?

When you hit the ball in golf you do not need to say anything unless you see that the ball is going into a crowd or may hit someone else. Then the word to yell out is, "FORE". It's the warning word. I have heard some other words used when someone hits the ball into the woods but I can't write them here.

'Fore' is the word that is shouted. The definition of fore is 'located at or toward the front' and the term 'to the fore' means something that has moved into a position of importance. It would be safe to say that a struck golf ball that is moving towards someone is moving into a 'position of importance'. So 'FORE!' is shouted to alert the person that a ball is headed in their direction.

Why do a golfer have to say fore and not five?

It is "Fore", not "four", hence not "five" either. The "Fore" comes from the old use of "Fore-caddies" who were down the fairway looking for the golfers ball coming down the fairway from the tee. The golfer would yell "Fore" telling the "Fore-caddie" that the ball was on the way. Now, of course, "Fore" means "Watch out! Ball is coming your way."
