Larry was having a particularly bad start on hole number 7 last weekend. After a beautiful practice swing he stepped up to the ball on the tee and made a stroke at the ball and caught nothing but air. While this is a good term if shooting hoops, it is a whiff when playing golf. Some what embarrassed, he again addressed the ball but accidentally knocked it off the tee. He lifted it back on the tee and said, "I guess this means I am now lying one (1), hitting two (2)." Was Larry correct? What is the correct answer and why?
