Eagle - +3 Birdie - +1 Par - 0 Bogie - -1 Double Bogie - -3
Golf is the sport that when the player with the higher score loses. The point of golf is to put the ball in the hole with the last amount of shots. When you are about to tee off at a hole, it says that "par" the hole is. If the hole is a par 3, that means that it should only take you three shots to put the ball in the hole. If it takes you only one shot (hole in one) to get the ball in the whole, that is considered an eagle or two under. If it takes you 2 shots to get it in the whole, that is considered a birdie, or one under. Then if it takes you 3 shots, like the hole says, then that is considered a par. You also have the opportunity to go over par which is conisidered bogie, double bogie, triple bogie, and so on. Bogie depends on how many shots over 3 you shoot.
Bogie means one worse than par. On a par 5 hole, if it takes you six strokes, that's a Bogey.
A bogey is one stroke over par.
An eagle in golf is when you score two under par on the hole. Example: On a par 4 you score a 2 or on a par 5 you score a 3
One over par on a golf hole.
You score a 3 or (1 under par)
A birdie is always one stroke below a par. Say when a par is a score of 4, that means a birdie is a score of 3. Then if a par is a score of 5, then a birdie is a score of 4. And then you get the idea.!!
It is not called a boogie. One over par on a hole is called a bogie.
Every hole has a par rating - usually 3, 4 or 5. One under means one less than this. So on a par 4 hole a score of 3 is one under par. This is called a birdie.
