Rhein Gibson holds the record for lowest golf score: 55. Furyk’s 58 is the official record for lowest round in PGA Tour history, but a few golfers have actually recorded rounds of 55.
Tiger Woods ‘ Lowest Round Ever We know from the statistics above that Woods ‘ best round ever on the PGA Tour is 61, which he has accomplished several times.
55 Is the Lowest (Known) 18 – Hole Golf Score Ever Recorded. The lowest score ever recorded for a “regulation” 18 – hole round of golf (not an executive course, not a short course, minimum par of 70) is 55. He had 13 birdies and one eagle and used only 20 putts. The golf course where Blancas’ 55 was posted no longer exists
The lowest 72 – hole score in Tour history came in 2009, as Steve Stricker was 33 under at the 90- hole Bob Hope Classic. Ernie Els holds the lowest 72 – hole tournament mark at 31 under — at the par-73 Plantation Course in Kapalua, HI — during the 2003 Mercedes Championship.
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.
Trailing Wood by three strokes with just four holes remaining, Sarazen holed a 235-yard 4-wood shot on the 15th hole for a double eagle, the rarest shot in golf . It was known as ‘the shot heard ’round the world.

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.
Tiger Woods might not be one of the longest hitters this season, but he does own one of the biggest drives of all time. In 2002, Woods unleashed a 498-yard bomb on the 18th hole at the Mercedes Championship at Kapalua’s Plantation Course. It holds up today as the longest recorded drive of the 21st century.
