Golfer shout four when a golf ball is heading in the direction of people, I would like to know why this number is called
mikeh is correct. That is the most accepted origination of the term.
Other possible origins include the term being derived from the term "fore-caddy" (caddy waiting down range from the golfer to find where the ball lands.)These caddies were often warned about oncoming golf balls by a shout "fore!"
It's ''fore'' they're calling, not ''four.'' It's likely a shortened version of ''beware before,'' but no one knows the etymology for sure. Its purpose is to warn players ahead of you that a golf ball is headed their way.
people call the word "four" just to warn other people that are golfing to get out of the way or they might get hit with the golf ball
its a warning to watch your nut lol
