Competent without being that great..(with the occasional really good shot)
4.0 at about 12 or so, 4.5 say 7- 10, 5.0 anything under 5.
I know plenty of scratch golfers who could never make it on the pro tour in a million years, so call that 5.5 and you're good..
I used to play golf, got down to about 10 but gave it away, I expect to go back to it when my knees tell me to stick to doubles on the tennis court.
(don't think I'll ever go much lower, though, can't putt!)
This is a pretty good synopsis. I would call a 16 hc a high 3.0. I would say a 4.0 would be a 10 hc.
Scratch golf is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay far from decent pro golf.
Golfs is hard. Tennis, not so much.
