What Does Under Par Mean In Golf?

by Joseph Hardison / , September 21, 2021

Par is the standard to which golfers aspire. Par 4 holes are typically more challenging than pars for 5 and under, while 6s tend not only be a whole lot shorter but also provide an opportunity cost with their length--you cannot get closer without going off-course! The beauty of this sport lies in its simplicity: it takes just one great shot from each player (and sometimes none at all), so every match has high suspense until someone finally sinks that winning putt or makes bogey Number One instead.

Usage Examples: "This hole was really tough because there were three bunkers on either side."

The Golf Course Par

18 holes of golf can be a challenge, but it's not impossible. An expert golfer will require the par to complete one course from start to finish with about 72 total strokes for an average level playing field and 70 if they play better shots than others do on their way around. You might have 10 Par 4s, four 3 hole courses or even five 5 peeves making up your final scorecard at the end.

The Under And Over Par

One way to be a superior golfer is by understanding the different types of strokes and how they affect your score. First, let's go over par for this hole which would mean completing in less than four shots — that means you need at least one under-par or better if not two!

A very good player might complete their round on three holes while others may take five; there isn't always agreement among golf enthusiasts as to what counts as "under" any given number so remember those terms too: birdies (one), eagles(two), etc.

The Below Par

"Below par" is an English idiom that means to not feel well, or perform below your usual standards. It can be used for a person's performance in golf because "par" (the number against which all performances are measured) would describe how they're playing on this particular day when compared with what their normal level should have been like beforehand as someone who has played many rounds previously without being too far off course due just from getting older and less practiced at it over time since nobody improves every single round--that comment applies regardless if you play sport-related activities where improvement happens gradually instead of suddenly improving dramatically after doing something once or twice then leveling off again soon afterward, but I'm using Par here specifically about scoring rated shots during games. 

It's not a great score, but it can still be impressive. Under par means golfers get lower than expected scores on their shots and this is what makes them different from players who tee off with numbers that are above average or even high for Golf percentage.
