Missing golf, whine and moan (6)


I believe the answer is:


'moan' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'missing golf whine' is the wordplay.
I cannot really see how this works, but
'golf' could be 'g' (phonetic alphabet: alpha, bravo, charlie etc.) and 'g' is located in the answer.
The remaining letters 'whine' is a valid word which might be clued in a way I don't understand.
This may be the basis of the clue (or it may be nonsense).

'and' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for whinge that I've seen before include "Moan" , "Grouse" , "Complain, whine" , "protest?" , "Peevish complaint" .)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian.
