Just curious, what probability of mid to low handicapper shooting 8 to 10 stroke better then their handicap especially at tournament?  is it less then 5 percent or even less?

thx

Not totally impossible really. I shot my best round of 78 many many years back at Legends when my handicap was 15. All stars were aligned and with a couple of birdies and a lot of pars, it was achievable.

Unfortunately we see this more often than not.

I usually only enjoy the food and company at the dinner.

What tee are u guys playing that day. If it's white, it's possible.
I usually shoot below 80 for white and above 80 for blue.

Let's give the benefit of doubt to the man. His friends and regular kakis should know his capability.

Play 55 for front 9!! Very good Liao. 
Once you warm-up, you shld easily play 50 and finish with a respectable 105 (+33) which is ard your hcp.

Problem is…..after front 9 will guzzle a couple of beers take a break.

Then back 9 "warm down" instead of warm up…..lol!

Personally I think quite strange that hcp 15 played 78. 

Mercs cup r usually played from blue or competition tees Which Are usually further back from normal blue tees. 

Anyway, this happens in Nsrcc competitions quite often.
