WHAT DOES GIMME MEAN IN ENGLISH?

gimme

Gimme

In golf, a gimme is a shot that the other players agree can count automatically without being actually played. When a player has only a very short putt left to play, other players may grant a gimme, but the ball is not actually played. A gimme is a time-saving convention under the tacit assumption that the putt would not have been missed—e.g. when the ball is only a few inches from the hole. Gimmes are not allowed by the rules in stroke play, though the practice is common in casual matches. However, in match play, either player may formally concede a stroke, a hole, or the entire match at any time, and this may not be refused or withdrawn. A player in match play will generally concede a tap-in or other short putt by his or her opponent. The word is a colloquial contraction of the phrase "give me".
