Today's word is foozle, spelled F-O-O-Z-L-E.

Foozle is a verb that means to manage or play awkwardly, to bungle. Here is the word used in a sentence from Golf.com by Gary Van Sickle.



"He foozled a short putt on the 72nd green at Southern Hills in Tulsa that would've won him the 2001 Open, then played solidly in a Monday playoff and defeated Mark Brooks for the title."



The word foozle dates only to the late 19th century, but its origins are obscure. The German dialect verb fuseln meaning "to work carelessly" could figure in its history, but that speculation has never been proven. Not particularly common today, foozle still holds a special place in the hearts, minds, and vocabularies of many golfers. In golf, to foozle a shot is to bungle it and a foozle is a bungled shot. In a Century magazine piece from 1899 called "Two Players and their Play," Beatrice Hanscom reveals more of golf's specialized vocabulary in this poem:

She tops her ball; then divots fly; / In bunkers long she stays; / She foozles all along the course / In most astounding ways: / In sooth, it is an eery thing / The way Priscilla plays.

I'm Peter Sokolowski with your Word of the Day.
