Golf Scoring Pt. 1

Hey everybody! Today I want to teach you a little bit about golf scoring. In the game of golf the goal is to hit the ball into the hole in as few shots as possible.

 

Each golf hole has a par number of three, four or five. If a golfer hits the ball into the hole in the same amount of shots as the holes’ par number than that golfer was even on that hole.

 

When a golfer gets the ball into a hole in fewer strokes than that holes’ par number there are certain feather-friendly names that those shots are called.

 

Birdie – Is not just the name of my goofy brother, but it is also the name for a golfer’s score. A golfer scores a birdie when they get the ball into the hole in one shot less than that holes’ par number.

 

Eagle – An eagle is a very strong bird and the name for a golfer’s score. A golfer scores an eagle when they get the ball into the hole in two shots less than that holes’ par number.

 

Albatross – An albatross happens when a golfer gets the ball into the hole in three shots less than that holes’ par number. It is also a very big seabird.

 

Condor – The condor is an amazing bird and an even more amazing golf shot! A golfer scores a condor when they get the ball into the hole in four shots less than that holes’ par number.

 

I hope you enjoyed your bird-filled scoring lesson. Birdie will be back next time with some more golf scoring fun!
