The answer is: zero. Of course Steve Sprurrier takes pride in something Steve Spurrier does. Per

In more than 30 years of coaching, Steve Spurrier has never lost a round of golf to one of his players. New challengers are apt to dismiss the claim, but Spurrier is happy to provide witness accounts of each of his triumphs. It’s a record he takes seriously.

The last to take his shot was kicker Ryan Succop, who played at South Carolina from 2005-08. Succop was good, and Spurrier knew it.

Succop had two triple-bogeys on the day and finished with a 79. Spurrier edged him out with a 77. On nine out of 10 days, Spurrier admits, Succop would’ve won. But that’s hardly the point.

Succop later said that he had never been so psyched-out on the golf course as he was that day. He was serious, Spurrier mind-fricks everyone he plays with if it's close, and when you try to retaliate he feeds off of that. Still, Succop, as a kicker who is doing quite well in the NFL he is used to mental pressures ... and Spurrier still caused him to melt.
