Why does sub-par mean bad when under par in golf is good?

What is the scoring in the game of golf?

Scorecards are divided into two sets of 9. One for the first 9 holes and the other for holes 10 through 18. Little pencils are used to log in how many shots were taken for each hole. After you tee off, keep track of all of your shots and then write down each hole's total shots before starting the next hole. Compare your number of shots to the par of the hole to see how you did. If the first hole is a par 4, and you finished in 5 shots, then you made a bogey, and you are +1 for the round, meaning you are one over par. Remember, the number of shots to make par depends on whether the hole is a par 3, 4 or 5. After the 9th hole, you'll notice a place on the scorecard to record your score on the front 9. Add up your score and compare it to what par is for the front 9. This is also when the erasers come out. Say that par for the front 9 is 36, and you shot a 45. This means your score is 45-36 = +9, or 9 shots over par (for the front 9). Repeat the same process for the back 9, and then add the two scores together to get the total score for the round.
