According to the National Golf Foundation, the average golf score remains where it has been for decades: 100.
So, according to the NGF, 55% of golfers surveyed report breaking 100.
There are flaws in all these numbers, however.
The first is that they assume golfers are playing by the rules.
How long does it take to break 100 in golf?
You just need to practice the basics really well. Two hours at the range and two hours on the chipping and putting green a week and you can break 100 within two weeks.
Is 100 a good score in golf?
Since a score of 100 is considered an average score for an average golfer, you’ll be considered an above-average golfer if you can consistently break 100.
What score does the average golfer shoot?
The standard par for a course is 72, meaning the average golfer shoots 28 strokes over par to shoot her 100. A milestone such as becoming a bogey golfer, meaning you average shooting 1 over par on every hole, would lead to an average score of 90 strokes.
