less strokes to get the golf ball into the hole.

3-4= -1. The player is 1 under par. This is termed a birdie. An eagle is two under par.
If the player took 5 shots to get the golf ball into the hole. The player is 1 over. Again Score
- Par, 5 -4 =1. This is termed a boggie. Two over is termed a double boggie.
