In that case, revealing the whole scoring is too big a hint.
Normally, golf contest reveal the score for the _total_ of the holes, but as
there's only one course, total score is also the score of the hole.
And that's not because the score and tie-breaker score is the same that
solutions are the same. Simply, there is no way to untie them according to
Given two solutions with the same score and tie breaker score, imagine how
frustrating it would be if one of the golfer gains one char and not the
other... But if the solutions are different, there may be absolutely no way
for the second golfer to shave one more char...
