Well I have been aware of the USGA definition of a bogie golfer for some time so I not ignorant of that.   But in my mind when someone says they're a bogie golfer I have always assumed they mean that they typically score about 90 +/- a couple of strokes on a par 72 course.  While that isn't exactly the same as the USGA definition it is the language of most daily fee players I would suspect and is close enough for Government work.

Thanks for the comment.

One issue I have with farther tees is not knowing the consequences of a mishit as I am new to them.

This makes me even more timid about making a good full swing. This factor compounds the distance difficulty.

The same goes for a course I have never played.

So, my handicap will be worse with longer holes, at least until I get used to my new swing.

BTW, what's a golfer who breaks 80 regularly called?
Besides good?

I call him a single (short for single digit handicapper).  

 

If he happens to be married, that complicates it a bit ... e2_whistling.gif

Anyone who shoots 90-100 is a bogey golfer in my book.  Which is a much more lax definition than the calculations contained herein.

95 average versus 93 for the best 10 of 20 rounds sounds pretty close to me. a1_smile.gif).

I chose "Not thinking" as I do not have USGA but EGA HC. But I am with Dave with this one.

 

The software I use for stats calculates also an unofficial USGA HC so I can compare. My EGA HC currently is 15.5 and my "USGA" HC would be about 18. My average for last 10 has been 92.2. I would say I am still a bogey golfer but with a good trend (and currently a broken knee).

 

nb. In case someone is wondering. The reason why my EGA HC is so much lower than calculated USGA HC, is because of two rounds of 85&86 which lowered my EGA HC by 1.2 shots each.
