What Is the Lowest Golf Score Over 18 Holes Ever Recorded?


Visitors: 248

The lowest golf score recorded on an 18 hole is absolutely amazing? Eat your hearts out. . .

The Guinness Book of World Records does recognize a “world record" in this category. What we can say with certainty is that no round of 54 has ever been recorded in golf . . . but that a round of 55 has been recorded.


In 1962 Homero Blancas put together a front nine of 27 and a back nine of 28 for a round of 55. He had 13 birdies and one eagle, and used only 20 putts.


On Sept. 5, 2007, Jay Osmon posted a round of 56 at Cattails Golf Club in Alamosa, Colo. The tees Osmon played during his 56 were around 6,000 yards in length, and the par was 71. Osmon had a 26 on the front nine and a 30 on the back nine.


Kris Wasylowich of Lethbridge, Alberta, posted a 57 on Paradise Canyon, in May, 2006. Wasylowich played the front nine in 27, and the back nine in 30.


Jason Bohn and Shigeki Maruyama share this spot. In 2000, Maruyama posted a round of 58 in a U. S. Open sectional qualifier. In 2001, Bohn shot 58 in the final round to win the Canadian Tour Bayer Championship.

There are others who also hit 58 but they are the only touring professionals who did it in high-level competitive events.

So now you have no excuse anymore for not hitting in the 50's. I'm just joking but it does show what is possible with the right amount of determination, discipline and passion for this wonderful game called golf.

It is great to have such a high standard to work towards in trying to set your lowest golf score.
