Does playing in a scramble count as not having a bogey for an entire round? 🤣

... I have had bogie free rounds, how many I can't really say although probably less than 10. And never 2 bogie free rounds in a row! 🤪

I think my biggest achievement (or evidence of bad approach shots?) is hitting birdies on back-to-back holes by chipping in. That felt pretty dang good.

... Well done! I played yesterday with 2 guys struggling with all their shots. One on #9 after 4 shots to get pin high right of the green to an easy straight forward 352 yd par 4 and hitting over a mound from thick grass and the other on the left side having to clear a bunker from deep rough after 3 to get there ... guy on the right hits it a little thin and it smacks the pin dead center and stops. Guy on the other side hits his too strong and it takes one hop and ready to run off the other side but that one hop wedged right against the flag/foam donut and the hole. I have never seen 2 players pitch in from bad lies on the same hole AND both shots lucky the flag was in the way or would have had at least 15-20 feet coming back. Ya have to think the golf Gods have a warped sense of humor. 🤪

No way! I think they do just enough to keep us coming back.

According to the USGA, 1.6-percent of male golfers who have a USGA Handicap Index have indexes of zero or better. Among women golfers, the percentage is even smaller: 0.37-percent. So the percentage of golfers who are scratch is very, very small.

I've been lucky, good, good and lucky.

9 holes no bogeys a few times

18 holes no bogeys, no birdies. Once

Most amount of birdies in 9 holes, 3 a few times

Most amount of birdies in 18 holes. 5 Once, correction twice. Just did it again last Sunday

I keep score cards with personal records, from nice courses, or from group outings.

Managed my bogey free nine holes earlier this year, one birdie and eight pars.  The back nine, I can't quite remember how that went.....

Bogeys are actually my goal!

Seriously .. I describe myself as.. "average recreational bogey golfer" .. so making a bogey, and not worse .. and with a possible chance at a par .. is a "good" hole for me.

At my course I have had a bogey-free front nine and a bogey-free back nine, but never on the same day, obviously... otherwise you would have certainly heard about it.  😀

I don't mind bogeys at all, as long as I don't string a bunch of them together.  🙄   I don't make many birdies, but I also don't make a ton of doubles or worse.  Yes, I can make them.  I have a lot of birdie-free rounds, and I can throw in some doubles here and there.

On the other side of this question I had ZERO pars on the back nine the other day (after making six pars on the front nine).  I did hit four of nine greens and three putted them all.  To my knowledge, I don't recall EVER a having a par free front or back nine except maybe when I was taking up the game as a kid which was 50 years ago.  I hope I got that out of my system.
