I think anyone who has a handicap of 18 or above would be considered a hacker. Think about this, if you normally have rounds in the mid to high 80’s, your handicap will be generally around 10-14, depending on the slope and rating of the course, but an average course, your handicap would be in that range. Think about this too – if you’re avg. score is high 80’s, isn’t that bogey golf? Bogey golf I think is a milestone for a lot of folks; it sure as heck was for me when I first started playing the sport. If your handicap is 18 or more, youâ€™re generally shooting mid 90â€™s and higher, youâ€™re probably having a lot of snowmen on your scorecard and that to me is a hacker. Bogey golf isnâ€™t, generally people who have bogeys are 2 or 3 putting but have a legitimate chance for a par.
Good points. I’m so into the PGA that I kind of consider anyone who isn’t scratch a hacker…. That is probably a bit extreme.
Yeah, that’s a bit extreme, though I can clearly see your point. There are plenty of scratch golfers in the world.
