P: I'm teaching Yang Chen, well, I'm trying to teach Yang Chen how to play golf.
Y: Are you sure this is a golf course?
P: This place is great, Yang Chen. OK, what were you expecting?
Y: Well, I was hoping to meet Tiger Woods. 这儿都是小孩儿，简直就像个游乐场。
P: It's sort of like an amusement park. We call it putt putt golf, or just putt putt.
Y: Putt putt, 听起来好可爱。
P: Yeah, for children such as yourself, Yang Chen. So anyway, Putt putt golf means miniature golf.
Y: 噢，迷你高尔夫球。So it's not a real golf course.
P: Well, Yang Chen, if we went to a real golf course we would definitely be the worst players on the course, especially you.
Y: No, you are the worst player.
P: But here we play with little kids so we can kick their butts!
Y: Oh god, 欺负小孩子， Shame on you.
P: No shame. I do it all the time. Stop complaining and grab a club. Let's tee off.
Y: Tea? 喝茶?
P: No, you spell this tee T-E-E, it's a small peg that holds the golf ball.
Tee off means to start a round of golf. You can also use 'tee off' in everyday life when you start something.
Y: Tee就是高尔夫球的球座。 Tee off就是开始。我们的老板昨天 teed off the staff meeting with a great speech. Don't you think?
P: You don't have to 拍他的马屁. He can't hear you right now. So let's just play some putt putt and kick some little kids' butt butt.
Y:OK. Let's tee off.
