What's "possible" on an 18 hole Par 72 4-man scramble?

Got this photo from my brother who played in a tourney in Oklahoma.

According to my math, this is 31 under par on 18 holes.

He thought their 52 would be very competitive lol - ended up 11 strokes back!

Multiple scores in the 40s!

But 41 seems crazy. Assuming 4 par threes (all birdies, no aces), that means they eagled all but one of the rest!?!

I don't believe it at all.
Maybe if they were playing from 4800 yards and had unlimited mulligans.
What was the name of the course? I want to see the scorecard.

LOL.

I doubt Tiger, DJ, Rory and Spieth could shoot -31 on 18 holes, unless maybe it was 6000 yds and they drove every green.

Off the stick 4 man scramble, lowest I have seen was -21.  That was on a pretty short course with mid-iron par 5s.  

You could go as low as you want, depending on the shots they got.  If everybody is getting a ton of shots, -31 is the new -15.  I am assuming this was handicapped.

I am calling BS- I have played in hundreds of 4 man scrambles through the years and never seen a score close to that. The 48 is believable, I was on a team that shot 48. We were all single digit handicaps, including a woman who could bomb the ball and we played at 5500 yards.

Has to be handicapped, but why would you handicap a scramble?

Edit: Just read your last post.  Were they able to buy unlimited mulligans?

The only legitimate way is low hdcp players on a course short enough that all second shots were chips or putts.

Was string used? One of the scrambles I played in sold or gave 10 feet? of string. If you ended up 1 foot from the hole, you could cut off 1 foot of string and save a stroke (i.e. if it was your tee shot on a par 3, you could record a 1).

Edit- just saw the string by other posters...if not string, net, etc. then something else would have to be up unless the course was really short.

A little low, but pretty much the norm for us.  Heck I got 2 birdies in 3 rounds, which is good for me......  One low HC'er has been off, but got 2 yesterday.....  As said tired of reading all these 10HC'ers saying 3/round is the norm.  Just not with my circle of golfers.

Same with the golfer who states that he usually chips one in every round.

I don’t even think impossible begins to touch this. If I was the tournament director I would have shaken their hands and told them to never come back. That sort of blatant cheating is beyond reprehensible.

If I was the director, I would have changed the first place prize from $100 pro shop gift cards to $25/ea and put the other $300 in a raffle.  Let the cheaters get a hat for their hard work.

I just feel bad for the 50.  You remember that time you shot a 50 and finished 1 out of the money?  Yeah....me neither.

Damn. My buddy and I, a 10 and a 12, just shot 30 (-6) in a men's league 9-hole 2-man scramble (no mulligans or bullxxxx) and that was pretty much the highlight of my year so far. Turns out we needed to have shot a 20 or 21 to achieve greatness!! LOL

Birdies on all par 3's, then eagles on every other hole on the course except one?! I can't believe these guys weren't told to f*** off.

Well maybe they butchered a few par 4's and only birdied them... and made up for that with a few par 5 albatrosses.

I just played a scramble with 'helpers' that you paid for, like rope to extend shots and throwable items - lowest score was like 44.
