Golf Terms : Golf Scoring


Ok, scoring is, it’s how you account for what
you’ve done on the course. So, one way to find out where you’re at in the game of Golf
is to count your score. And, so they’ve done a study that only 5% of people actually break
100. So, if you break 100 you’re in the top 5% already. So, how do you score? Well this
is a scorecard, and most golf holes are Par 4, which means they’re usually ranging from
300-450 yards. It’s expected that it will take you two shots of hitting the big club
to get onto the green, and then they allot you two putts. But, that also means if it’s
a short Par 4, you might get on the green in one, if you’re a big hitter then maybe
you can get an eagle or birdie. So these terms, what an eagle means is that’s two under the
alloted par for a hole. A birdie means one under par for the hole, an ace would mean
a hole in one. And then a bogie means you’re one stroke over expected par, and a Double
Bogie is two strokes over expected par, and a triple bogie is three strokes over expected
par. So, par just means what the course has determined that a good player should be able
to get to that hole in three, use three strokes for that hole, that would be a par 3, four
strokes par 4, or five strokes is a par 5. So usually, most courses the total score that
is par is 70-72. So that’s all that you do, you count each hole and so if you got a par
on a par 4 hole, you’d mark down 4. If you got a birdie you’d mark down 3, if you marked
a bogie you get 5, and then you add up your score. So if you’re breaking 100, you’re in
the top 5%. Congratulations. Now you want to move up into that top 1%.
