|Meaning||A golfer with a handicap of zero|
A scratch golfer is a player who has a handicap of zero or below. It indicates that the player is very good.
The scratch golfer can play to a zero handicap at any golf course. The term is similar to "bogey golf", which represents a level of play that equals a bogey on each hole.
"He hustled me out of a grand when I thought he played bogey golf instead of being a scratch golfer."
