Best Answer

double eagle, that's correct for the USA but here in the UK 3 under is classed as an Albatross

Scoring terms summarised

+1 = Bogey (then this goes up - ie. double bogey, triple bogey etc etc)

+/-0 = Par

-1 = Birdie

-2 = Eagle

-3 = Albatross (Double Eagle)

-4 = Condor

-5 = Ostrich (almost impossible as this would require a hole-in-one on a par 6 which on their own are very rare)
