Keeping score in golf is fairly simple. After each hole, you record how many shots it took you to complete the hole. At the end of your round, add the scores from each individual hole and you’ll get your gross score for the 18 holes.
Stableford is a scoring system in golf which, rather than counting the total number of strokes taken, involves scoring points based on the number of strokes taken at each hole.
The maximum score for each hole played is limited to a net double bogey – which is equal to Par of the hole + 2 strokes (double bogey) + any handicap strokes the player is entitled to receive on that hole based on their Course Handicap.
Stroke play , also known as medal play , is a scoring system in the sport of golf in which the total number of strokes is counted over one, or more rounds, of 18 holes; as opposed to match play , in which the player , or team, earns a point for each hole in which they have bested their opponents.

If you want to be considered good you at least need to have an official handicap . The survey found golfers around 16 to 20 handicap to be the average golfer . The USPAG puts the “official” average at a 15 handicap . This would mean a player who typically scores around 90 on the average course.
In golf , a greenie is when you hit your tee shot onto the green on a Par-3 and make par or better. If an opponent (or teammate) also got it on the green off the tee, whoever is closer to the pin has the greenie opportunity.
Handicap differential = (Adjusted Gross Score-rating of the course) X 113 / Course slope ratings. The course rating is simply the scores of a new golfer on a normal course under a normal playing condition. Slope rating is the rating of 113 for a course based on the standard difficulty.
The 10 -Shot Rule means any player within 10 shots of the lead after 36 holes also makes the cut, whether they’re inside the top 50 and ties or not.
But as McIlroy pointed out post-round, once the shock factor wears off, he just has to adjust to his new numbers. “I mean, I was hitting little 7-irons from 155 yards at Riviera last week.

Best ball (also known as fourball in the Ryder Cup ) involves 2-person teams where each player on the team plays his or her own golf ball throughout the round. After each hole the player with the lowest score on the hole (or “best ball”) out of the 2-person team serves as the team’s score.
Score your scramble using stroke play rules. Write your team’s score in the field in the first row below the hole number. Note that in scramble play, all four players hit their best shot, then each player hits from that position. The process is repeated for each hole.
