haha...the last time I alluded to what the "average golf score" was ( 100), my post disappeared (or moved). At the time I was only trying to make a new member feel a little better about his scoring and remarking that it was no worse than the average. As I recall, I linked to the information I was quoting. In any event, I could no longer find my post. Perhaps somebody thought it was not relevant to the thread. No biggie, but at the time I thought quite unnecessary to delete/move it. If you "google" average golf scores, you usually find several links that say in effect: The average golf score has remained at 100 for decades. Granted, there "may" be some other references that say that figure is no longer valid. It is also noteworthy it is nearly impossible to include "all" golfers, as there are many who do not record scores, do not maintain handicaps, e.t.c. but as a "generalized" statement, I think it pretty much holds true.
