What score does the average golfer in America shoot?...The answer may sur- prise you...According to a survey by the national Golf Foundation, the average non-pro golfer shoots about 97 for 18 holes...They say only one third of all golfers regularly break 90, and only 8 per- cent shoot in the 70s. Why is a first year player in sports called a =rookie"?...The name came from chess, where the rook is often the last piece played...In the eady days of base- ball, tim-year players were usually the last used...They became known as "rooks" or "rookies'.
