Shuttlecocks are the feathered equivalent of a tennis ball, used in the game of Badminton. Birdies or Birdie is a technical term used in Golf to indicate one under par. So if the usual form for a hole is par 4 (normally holed in 4 shots) then a birdie would be to pot the ball in one under this (3 shots). Other terms used in Golf to indicate the significance of how many shots against the par are: Albatross - 3 under par Eagle - 2 under par Birdie - 1 under par Par - Matched the given expectation of shots for this hole Bogey - 1 over par Double Bogey - 2 over par Triple Bogey - 3 over par and so on. Hope that answers your question. David
