About This Quiz

Golf is an incredibly difficult game. Whether you've been playing for years or you just took up the sport, you have an appreciation for the challenge of taking a crooked stick and getting a tiny ball into a minuscule hole that is hundreds of yards away from you. 

Golf also tends to reveal a person's true character. There's a good reason why so much business is conducted on a golf course. You are pretty much guaranteed to come face-to-face with adversity at some point in a round of golf. In a brutal way, how you handle that challenge will be on display for your entire group to see.

Similarly, there are certain preferences and tendencies that we believe give a clue as to your usual score. For example, the food you eat at the turn will offer some information as to whether you are prioritizing your athletic abilities or your taste buds at the half-way point in the round. We'll also take information about your set of clubs, your golf attire, and the general shape of your golf shots to come to a conclusion about the state of your game.

Let's get this round started. Next up on the first tee...you.
