hit and giggle
 n.— «For two men who were outstanding athletes and intense competitors as coaches, Black and Snyder take a laid-back approach to golf. They shoot in the 90s, but score barely matters. “I’m not sure what the term for it is in golf, but in tennis we call it hit and giggle,” Snyder said. “We just enjoy being outside and appreciating the scenery and the camaraderie. Sometimes we keep score. Sometimes after a bad hole we just forget about it.”» —“Former coaches find time for golf” by Doug Smith Austin American-Statesman (Texas) Oct. 26, 2006.
