'Regulation' has different meanings in Golf. Par is considered regulation. Hitting the fairway off the tee on a par 4 or 5 is considered a fairway in regulation (FIR) and hitting the green off the tee on a par 3, or hitting the green on a par 4 with your second shot, or hitting the green on a par 5 with your third shot is considered a green in regulation (GIR). The best way to think about regulation and par is that you should always get 2 puts to get par on a hole. Therefore if you are on the green in 2 on a par 4, you can put 2 times to make par and therefore were on the green in regulation.

There is no such thing. However, some players think 59 is the magic number, but others think 54 ( 18 under on a par 72 course ) would be a perfect round.
