55 Is the Lowest (Known) 18 – Hole Golf Score Ever Recorded.

Augusta National Golf Club: 12th Hole Famed golfer Jack Nicklaus doesn’t just think the 12th hole is the hardest at Augusta National , but he also thinks the 155-yard par 3 may be the hardest hole in tournament golf. Also referred to as “Golden Bell,” the hole is the shortest on the course.
These numbers come in handy for calculating a handicap after you have played some rounds. For example, say you go out and shoot an 85 over 18 holes. You could then look up the course and subtract the course rating from your score, in this case 85 -71 = 14.
