A short putt very close to the hole that your playing partners award you. You don't have to putt your ball. You'll hear, " That's a gimme!" during a casual and friendly round, but it is not within the rules of golf. Good on the "next" shot not the last.
(aka: "gimmie") a putt that is short enough in length to be certain to be holed with the next stroke. Example: "Great putt Abby! That next one (the putt) is a gimme".
A short putt that is conceded by your playing partners. Using the "gimme" speeds the pace of play. Don't assume your playing partners will use the "gimme". If they don't you could incur a 2 stroke penalty, have to replace your ball and putt anyway.
A putt that is sure to go in the hole on the subsequent shot.
a putt conceded by your opponent and your ball can be picked up
a short putt that the golfer does not hit but simply picks up, declaring the next putt good
A short putt so close to the hole that your playing partners allow for you to simply pick it up – without taking the time to actually putt the ball into the hole. You'll hear, “That's a gimme!” during a casual and friendly round of golf, but it is not within the actual rules of golf. A “gimme” still counts as a stroke. It is just typically used as a time-saving and friendly gesture -- that is offered by your fellow playing competitors.
when a player has only a short putt left to play, other players may grant a gimme, i.e. one stroke iscounted, but the ball is not actually played (under the tacit assumption that the putt would not have been missed)
A shot, usually on the green, but that may be anywhere on the course, that is conceded by a player's opponent. Gimmees are usually applied to short putts that are almost certain to be holed.
A putt that is certain to be made on the next shot and will most likely be conceded by an opponent.
A courtesy. This is when a player concedes a putt, generally because the ball is so close too the hole that the other player is virtually assured of holing.
An easy putt that is likely to be conceded by the opponent.
A short distance putt, which is assumed that the player will make.
Gimme in golf is a shot that the other players agree can count automatically without actually being played.
