Golf Score and Handicap

Hope this helps.

Par 3

By getting the ball into the
hole with 3 strokes of your club,
that's a par.

2 strokes=birdie
3 strokes=par
4 strokes=bogey


Similarly..
Par 4

3 strokes=birdie
4 strokes=par
5 strokes=bogey

if the total number of strokes you consistently
play for an 18 hole game is 102, it means that
you play off a handicap of (102-72)=30.
