Concede or Concession, Golf Term

    In match play, a golfer may concede a shot or the match at any time. This is typically done on the putting green, when a golfer concedes his opponent’s very short putt. A conceded shot is considered holed, no matter where it occurs. Example: Davy has a 1-foot putt for par on hole No. 10; Phillip, his opponent, concedes the putt, meaning Davy scores a par for the hole due to the concession.
