Hitting the green in regulation means your ball is on the green ( not the fringe or rough) In the number of strokes that allows you to two - putt for par . One on a par 5 that's 3 strokes ,on par 4 it is 2 strokes and on par 3 it is 1 stroke

In regulation golf?

'Regulation' has different meanings in golf. Par is considered regulation. Hitting the fairway off the tee on a par 4 or 5 is considered a fairway in regulation (FIR) and hitting the green off the tee on a par 3, or hitting the green on a par 4 with your second shot, or hitting the green on a par 5 with your third shot is considered a green in regulation (GIR). The best way to think about regulation and par is that you should always get 2 puts to get par on a hole. Therefore if you are on the green in 2 on a par 4, you can put 2 times to make par and therefore were on the green in regulation.

What is the perfect golf score?

There is no such thing. However, some players think 59 is the magic number, but others think 54 ( 18 under on a par 72 course ) would be a perfect round. I suppose, hitting the fairway in regulation, hitting the green in regulation and then one putting on every hole would be the perfect round of golf.
