three jack
 n.— «In golf parlance, it was the dreaded “three jack” on Oakmont’s vicious No. 1 green that did in Baddeley. He missed an 8-foot putt for bogey. Knifed a 4-footer coming back for double and then holed the short remnants left for triple-bogey 7, sliding in about 11 minutes from a two-shot tournament lead to a guy on his way to being mired in the pack that couldn’t catch champion Angel Cabrera. That triple bogey on No. 1 was a large contributor to Baddeley’s total of 80 yesterday.» —“Baddeley’s day goes downhill in a hurry” by Colin Dunlap Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (Pennsylvania) June 18, 2007.
