If a golf score changed from 1 below par to 5 above par how could the score change?

The score would change by increasing 6 strokes - like from -1 to +5. For instance, if the golf course was par 70, 69 would be one under and 75 would be 5 over par. Remember, in golf the lower the score the better. Making par for 18 holes is very difficult for most golfers. Berney Trembly

What do golf shots boogie eagle mean?

You are probably refering to a "bogey" and an "eagle". Each hole on a golf course has a specific number of shots it should take a player to get his/her golfball from tee to hole(cup). This number is refered to as "par". There are par 3,4, and 5 holes on a golf course. On an eighteen hole course, these holes combine for a total of par 70-72 depending on how many par 3,4, and 5 holes the course contains. If a person takes 3 strokes on a par 4, this would be a "birdie" ( 1 under par on that hole). The scoring for a par 4 hole is like this: 2 over (6)= double bogey 1 over (5)= bogey even (4)= par 1 under (3)= birdie 2 under (2)= eagle Hope this is what you are looking for.

How many pars in a 18 hole golf course?

Each hole and every course has its own predetermined par. Par is the standard number of strokes set for each hole or for the entire course. there are 4 par 3's, 10 par 4's and 4 par 5's There are always 18 pars on an 18 hole golf course. Par is considered to be the score an expert should require to finish a particular hole. now, perhaps the above (4 par 3's, 10 par 4's and 4 par 5's) is true on a "standard" or regulation (par 72) course. But there are also courses that are par 69, 70, 71, 73 and so on. These will obviously not follow the standard breakdown. Then also consider "executive" courses, consisting of only par 3's and par 4's. These are often par 58 but again, these can vary as well.

How is the cut line determined for the British Open Golf Championship?

After two rounds, the top 70 players and ties make the cut. This means that the players ranked 1-70 in the field make the cut, but if the 70th person is on say even par, all players on even par make the cut also. It is quite difficult to understand, but if a player is placed 71 or worse after two rounds they will not make the cut.
