How many people can break Par in Golf?

Less than 1% of all golfers on earthAnswer:The Par value for a golf course is that score that can be attained by an expert player> A professional and certified professional player is by definition an expert player The United States Golf Teachers Federation® trains and certifies golf teaching professionals. It is the largest organization of strictly golf teaching professionals in the world with over 25,000 members. It may be assumed that at least this number of people can break par. It can be further assumed that not everyone who can break par will want to join the organization for either time or financial considerations and that many fine expert level golfers exist outside of the organization. Assume that only 30% of the expert golfers belong, this implies that there are more than 75,000 golfers capable of breaking par at any course and many more if you consider golfers who regularly play at only their local courses where they are familiar with the course. The Golf Research Group estimates that there are 57 million golfers in the world (their criteria for "golfers" are not known). Thee implication is that at least 1% of golfers and as many as 2 to 3% of golfers can regularly break par and a much higher percentage can break par on occasion.
