A bogey golfer should never make a hole in one, but it happens

I shoot 82 in the local. 0.9hcp. 3 fairways and 36 putts. To be fair it was my second round in six months and I thinks I hit range balls 3 times. Sounds like the OP was out of his comfort zone.
I know a lot of guys 1-2hcps that never break 80 in tournaments. In the words of Bobby Jones, " there is golf and there is tournament golf, and the two have nothing to do with one and other".or something like that.
I've read every post here and its funny my highest score thus far this year had been 83...after reading this topic I went out on Monday and shot a scintillating 93. I am no vanity handicapper...I count every stroke and hole out everything. This was the highest score I've shot in a number of years...it was dreadful...I shot a 44 on the front side and decided to press on the back side and man the freakin wheels came off as did my composure and i shot a 49 on the back side...it was an educational experience.
I tend to disagree with the way the USGA Handicaps are figured....I have a 2.3 HCap but sincerely believe I play more to a 4 or 5...I had a couple of good rounds under par but my average score is 76...I like the way they do the handicaps in the UK...only tournament rounds are considered valid towards a handicap...just some of my musings
