How to calculate golf scores.

Golf courses generally consists of 18 holes, and playing a round of golf means playing 18 holes. The first 9 holes are call the OUT course, and the next nine holes are called the IN course. ‘Par’ is a base score for each hole, and generally in a par 72, 18 hole course there are 4 par 3 holes, 3 par 5 holes, and 10 par 4 holes. In a par 3 hole, a player should put the ball in the hole cup in three shots. Putting the ball in 2 strokes makes it a birdie and putting the ball with one stroke makes it a hole in one. In a par 3 hole, putting the ball in the hole cup makes in 4 strokes make it a par. Putting it in in 3 strokes makes it a birdie, in 2 strokes makes it an eagle, and in one stroke makes it a hole in one. In a par 5 hole, putting the ball in the hole cup makes in 5 strokes make it a par. Putting it in in 4 strokes makes it birdie, in 3 strokes makes it an eagle, and in 2 stokes makes it an albatross. For a par 4 hole, scoring 1 point less makes it a birdie(-1), 2 points less makes it an eagle(-2), and 3 points less makes it an albatross(-3), 1 point more makes it a bogey(+1), 2 points more makes it a double bogey(+2), 3 points more makes it a triple bogey(+3), and 4 points more makes it a quadruple bogey. Scoring par for 18 holes(generally par 72) is called even, scoring less than even is called under par, and is recorded as -1, -2, -3, and etc. Scoring more than even is called over par, and is recorded +1, +2, _3, and etc.
