One of the most important terms associated with golf is par. Par is the ideal score that a golfer can obtain on a particular hole. Each hole is assigned a number that indicates the number of strokes that should be needed to get the ball into the hole. This number is determined by the distance from the tee to the hole and by the obstacles that may be in the way.

If a golfer gets the ball into the hole in three shots on a 3-par hole, then that golfer has made a par. If the golfer makes the ball into the hole with one stroke more than par, this score is called a bogey. Two strikes higher than par is called a double bogey, three strikes higher than par a triple bogey, and four strikes higher than par a quadruple bogey. Anything higher than four strokes is simply just referred to by the number of strokes.

On the other hand, if a golfer is able to get the ball into the hole with one stroke fewer than par, this is called a birdie. Making the ball in with two strokes below par is an eagle, while doing so with three strokes below par is called either a double eagle or albatross.
