The letter "V" - A Vardon grip is often required to perform a Vaulting dormie

Vardon grip
A common grip style in which (for right-handed players) the right pinkie finger rests on top of the left index finger. Also known as the "overlapping grip", it is named for Harry Vardon, a champion golfer of the early 20th century.
PGAT says – Harry Vardon must have been laughing that no one thought of doing this
Vaulting dormie
A possible occurrence in match play when a player converts a lead into a victory without passing through dormie, a guaranteed minimum of a tie at the end of regulation play. For example, converting an 8-hole lead with nine to play into a 9-hole lead with eight to play, or converting a 1-hole lead with two to play into a 2-hole lead with one to play.
PGAT says – When you are leading and you win the last hole which your match plays, this happens. Is that clearer than what they said? I’m not sure.
