Golfers Make Outrageous Claim of Achieving a Feat That’s Only Been Done Once in PGA Tour History

Many minor events in golf work on a self-scoring system. While this works well to build trust in the sport, some use this to their advantage. Filling your scoresheet with no one to monitor you makes it incredibly easy to stray from the honest path. There have known to been many armature players who have tweaked their score to make it seem like they performed better.ADVERTISEMENTArticle continues below this adA scramble team recently turned in a scorecard that suggested they had the lowest score in the history of golf, and it sounded too good to be true.ADVERTISEMENTArticle continues below this adThis team claims a record-breaking low score in golfGolf Digest recently posted about a scramble team that submitted a par-free scorecard. Every hole on the team’s 18-hole scorecard was a par or better. While tough, this is not an impossible task. Had the score been 18 birdies, maybe the team would have gone unnoticed, but it didn’t end there.The team claimed they had made 12 birds and four eagles. Their scorecard also stated that the team holed an ace on a par-4 and an albatross on a par-5. An ace or a hole-in-one is certainly a rare event, but an albatross surpasses that. It can only be scored on a par-5 or above and is also called a double eagle. This means the golfer has to hole the ball in two strokes on a par-four, which is immensely difficult.The ace the team had claimed was on a par-4 hole. Andrew Magee is the only golfer to even accomplish this on the PGA Tour, doing so at the 2001 Waste Management Phoenix Open. He sunk the ball into the hole right off the tee on the 17th hole in his first round.Due to the absurd claims of par-4 holes in one and an albatross, the legitimacy of the scorecard was immediately questioned. The team had stated that their final score on the par-72 round was 46. Golf Digest wrote, “There’s always that one group that posts an outrageous number. Do you believe them?” Fans certainly didn’t.
