And what is a "golf term"?

The word may be further traced to Proto-Germanic *skit-, and ultimately to Proto-Indo-European *skheid- "cut, separate", the same root believed to have become the word shed. The word has several cognates in modern Germanic languages, such as German ScheiŖe, Dutch schijt, Swedish skit, Icelandic skŪtur, Norwegian skitt etc. Ancient Greek had 'skor' (gen. 'skatos' hence 'scato-'), from Proto-Indo-European *sker-, which is likely unrelated.
This looks more plausible than the Ship high in transit story which appears to be more of a cock and bull shared among golf players while they "play"
