What are the odds you'll be better..?

To paraphrase Dean Knuth, The Pope of Slope:

What are the odds that a 19-handicapper to shoot a 77 from tees that had a course rating of 71.2 and a Slope of 133 (mucho difficult-o!). 

The 19-handicapper shooting:

10 shots or better are 37,000-to-1

5 shots better would be 174-to-1

But in this example, a 14 shot improvement (being a 19-handicapper, going from 91 to 77):

100,000 to 1 (or more than a lifetime of golf)
