I'm very close to breaking 100 and shot 46 on my last 9 hole round,just thought it would be good to ask how much play that entailed in breaking those scoring barriers as frequency of play and practice does have a bearing along with talent.Some have said but not all.It's interesting to know.

broke 100 in 2 months after I took up the game (had alot of guidance and tutoring from a friend who averages 73-75 and ten years of hockey helped a little) shot a 91 at the end of that summer, did

I started playing when I was 10. I probably broke 100 within my first year of playing cuz I was hooked. I broke 90 by age 13, broke 80 by age 15. Played on my high school golf team. But actuall

Quote: Wanna break 100? Learn to putt. Wanna break 90? Learn to chip. Wanna break 80? Learn course management. Wanna break 70? Play tournaments.

I never had many rounds in the 100's when I first started playing. It took me about 3 years to break into the 70's. Now I hover around high 70's low 80's. A great round for me is about 75.

All things relative. My home coures is 72.3/132 from the tees I play.

pretty much the exact same story for me.

I regularly broke 100 almost straight away.

broke 80 after about 18 months.

i do remember my first few times nearly breaking 80, getting to the 18th needing a par and just failing.

been playing 3 years and i am happy if i shoot in mid 70s. Really good day is 73/74.

Average 79.

I am dissappointed if i shoot 80+.

Have shot under par twice on 9 hole courses.

Not sure when I seriously broke 100, but let's say 20 years. Took another 2 years to break 90 and one year to break 80.

I started playing when I was around 10 or so. Didn't take it seriously until about 3 years ago.

Broke 100 in less than a year, but took 7 years to break 90 as I didn't golf much (maybe 20 rounds per year on average. I started playing weekly this year and it took 2 months to get to playing in the 90's all the time and about 2 more months to break 90, still haven't broken 80 but I have shot a 83 4 times so it is close.

today was the day I broke 80!

3 doubles 5 bogies 7 Pars 3 birdies I went 38 - 41. I sank an 8 footer that broke 2 ft on 18 for birdie and an 8 over 79. nice thing was I didn't pay attention to my score card so I had no clue that the tricky birdie putt was for 79. It was very nice suprise when i added up my card to see the 79!

been playing 5 1/2 months now.. took me 3 to break 90, ill shoot high 70's occasionaly now as well.

Perhaps you'd be so kind as to sign a bunch of autographs for everone 'cause you are destined for greatness.

5.5 months and shooting occasionally in the 70's.... You are either totally full of baloney or you are the real deal rising star. Not saying you are misleading us...only that your success is improbable.

Started playing in '69, broke 90 in '72,,,broke 80 in '73,,,been stuck there ever since.

I think the leap from consistantly breaking 80 to a sub-5 hndcp is hugh requireing far more time than the avg player can dedicate. I live in S. Fla, can play every day if I had the time but to shoot 75 or better on a regular basis is a goal I don't have the time for nor the athleticism to accomplish.

I am slow starter so it took me a long time to break 100, 90, 80 and after 24 years I broke par three times.

I think the formula for lowering your handicap

Putting number one and the ability to get up and down from around the green.
for handicaps up to shooting par.

When you are shooting under par the ability to hit greens becomes more of a factor and maintaining your putting and up and down ability.

Broke 100 within the first month or so when I started playing regularly at age 19 or 20. Broke 90 and 80 the next summer when I was practicing/playing 5-6 days a week and after taking a few lessons.
Sadly I didn't play much the past few years, but I'm getting back into it now. The best I've done this year is low 80s, but hopefully I'll be back in the 70s next summer!

I can almost guarantee if you work on your short game you can break 90 within 3 months and 80 within a year. A couple years ago I started focusing on keeping a steady head after reading a Golf Diget article by Hank Haney. I then bought a product on ebay called the Steady-Head (like $30 bucks) which is pretty cool and actually works. I took 3-4 strokes off my game in less than one year by working on the short game and keeping a steady head. Good luck.
