Blue tees: ya, black: hell ya, but white??
Par 72: ya, but par 71 or 70?

Or is it simpler than all this ... 79 is "breaking 80" irrespective of the above!?

As long as it's not off red, you should be proud of your achievement Smile

Why worry which one is legit? Every course rating can be different as well. If it's for your own bragging right among friends, just tell that you scored "79 from blue Tee" today (if it's blue). If it's from white Tee, just say "79" will do lor, unless they ask from what tee.

Regardless of what tee, breaking 80 is an achievement itself

Congrats Bro. Next target <= 75

Must be me... I bring out the worst in people who share buggies with me Smile I made sure you used up all your bad shots at one go by passing over some of my spare lousiness during our game... next time before you bet big big, please golf with me the day before Razz

Strangely enough, I play my worst round in recent months (esp when it is off the whites on a short course) with you too that day...mmm... wonder if you have the same magical properties too???

Thanks LG ... next targets:

<= 75
Break 80 from blue
Bad round should never be > 90
Single digit handicap

Ya man, we both got rid of our bad shots that day! Have u played since? If not, bet big for your next round Smile

We should make our "bad shot" round a regular fixture Beer

The ultimate litmus test to verify if u break 80 is to base on this formulae

Take your score....and deduct against 80

If the result is negative, u break 80

Breaking 80 is a threshold that many golfers will never experience. Enjoy the accomplishment.
