It means being 7 holes ahead with only 6 left to play (ie. impossible to catch up so that match is called at that point). It also means the match only had to get to the 12th hole to decide it.

On the 12th green (of 18) you have already won 7 holes and there are 7 still to play. You then win the 12th hole as well therefore you are 8 up and only 6 holes remaining.
