Best Answer

According to Golf experts, the term came into fashion in the late 1800's when there was a popular song called "Bogey Man" which included the line "I'm the bogey man - catch me if you can". Originally the term was used for a good score in golf, but when the term "par" became widely used to describe that same desirable score, "bogey" changed meaning somewhat.
