How to play buck putt- the best putting game.

Buck putt is one of my favorite gambling games. It goes as follows:

When a player is on the green, another player may yell "Buck putt!" to indicate they believe that player will 3 putt or worse. If the player successfully two-putts, the challenger must pay $1. If the putter does in fact 3 putt or worse, they owe $1.

The game ramps up as any number of players can buck putt. The putter is unable to refuse. So in a situation where 3 other players yell "buck putt!" that could cost the putter $3.

One additional rule, if the putter one-putts, they are owed a predetermined dollar figure, typically $5. Have fun!
