What's "possible" on an 18 hole Par 72 4-man scramble?



Got this photo from my brother who played in a tourney in Oklahoma.



According to my math, this is 31 under par on 18 holes.



He thought their 52 would be very competitive lol - ended up 11 strokes back!

    Multiple scores in the 40s!



    But 41 seems crazy. Assuming 4 par threes (all birdies, no aces), that means they eagled all but one of the rest!?!

    I don't believe it at all.

    Maybe if they were playing from 4800 yards and had unlimited mulligans.

    What was the name of the course? I want to see the scorecard.

    LOL.



    I doubt Tiger, DJ, Rory and Spieth could shoot -31 on 18 holes, unless maybe it was 6000 yds and they drove every green.

    Off the stick 4 man scramble, lowest I have seen was -21. That was on a pretty short course with mid-iron par 5s.



    You could go as low as you want, depending on the shots they got. If everybody is getting a ton of shots, -31 is the new -15. I am assuming this was handicapped.

    I am calling BS- I have played in hundreds of 4 man scrambles through the years and never seen a score close to that. The 48 is believable, I was on a team that shot 48. We were all single digit handicaps, including a woman who could bomb the ball and we played at 5500 yards.

    Looks like half the field wasn't even in when this picture was taken. Maybe the 41 team didn't win?

    Has to be handicapped, but why would you handicap a scramble?



    Edit: Just read your last post. Were they able to buy unlimited mulligans?

    The only legitimate way is low hdcp players on a course short enough that all second shots were chips or putts.

    Was string used? One of the scrambles I played in sold or gave 10 feet? of string. If you ended up 1 foot from the hole, you could cut off 1 foot of string and save a stroke (i.e. if it was your tee shot on a par 3, you could record a 1).



    Edit- just saw the string by other posters...if not string, net, etc. then something else would have to be up unless the course was really short.

    A little low, but pretty much the norm for us. Heck I got 2 birdies in 3 rounds, which is good for me...... One low HC'er has been off, but got 2 yesterday..... As said tired of reading all these 10HC'ers saying 3/round is the norm. Just not with my circle of golfers.



    Same with the golfer who states that he usually chips one in every round.

    I don’t even think impossible begins to touch this. If I was the tournament director I would have shaken their hands and told them to never come back. That sort of blatant cheating is beyond reprehensible.

    If I was the director, I would have changed the first place prize from $100 pro shop gift cards to $25/ea and put the other $300 in a raffle. Let the cheaters get a hat for their hard work.



    I just feel bad for the 50. You remember that time you shot a 50 and finished 1 out of the money? Yeah....me neither.

    ****. My buddy and I, a 10 and a 12, just shot 30 (-6) in a men's league 9-hole 2-man scramble (no mulligans or bullxxxx) and that was pretty much the highlight of my year so far. Turns out we needed to have shot a 20 or 21 to achieve greatness!! LOL



    Birdies on all par 3's, then eagles on every other hole on the course except one?! I can't believe these guys weren't told to f*** off.



    Well maybe they butchered a few par 4's and only birdied them... and made up for that with a few par 5 albatrosses.

    I just played a scramble with 'helpers' that you paid for, like rope to extend shots and throwable items - lowest score was like 44.

    I play in a weekly 9 hole scramble

    If we play 2 putts the possible score doubles and if you chip in or putt from the fringe that counts as two putts

    Good 6 man teams can go pretty low

    Lots at stake, you can win two balls each

    There is also a blind draw, so everybody gets a chance
