X is a term used to define a round of eighteen holes of golf where all holes were played at one under par (birdie on every hole) resulting in a score of 55 on a par 73 course, 54 on a par 72 course, 53 on a par 71 course, and 52 on a par 70 course. Since a score of 18 is the lowest score that could theoretically be obtained, X is an incorrect term for the score of 54 (or whatever 18 under par is). 54, however, is the lowest score generally accepted as being in the realm of possibility among professional golfers on a par 72 course. This has remained the standard and has never been achieved by a professional golfer in a professional event.
