Could you earn the Golf merit badge? Take this 18-question quiz to find out

You don’t have to swing like Spieth or blast it like Bubba to earn the Golf merit badge.

You do have to know about golf’s rules, its equipment and its lingo. (Like: Was that a hook or a slice I just hit?)

This wasn’t a problem for the 3,826 Scouts who earned the Golf merit badge last year.

But what about those Scouters who regularly play the game or watch professional golf on TV? It’s time to put your golf knowledge to the test.

My magazine colleague Keith Faber put together this 18-question quiz with answers taken straight from the Golf merit badge pamphlet.

Be Prepared: Like the game itself, this quiz is frustratingly difficult.

  1. Missed one (94%) & got triple-bogey. Looks like a small bug in the scoring. Otherwise great stuff. Do these exist for other badges?
