Nate, I think you are making my point for me
. One definition of par is "an amount or level considered to be average
". You are clearly describing the performances where you scored a four
as above average and very memorable. Essentially you are "patting yourself on the back" for what you consider a par performance and by extension describing a score of 5 as mediocre. Shouldn't "one of the best" and "memorable" holes you ever play be considered a birdie to you? It sounds to me like you agree that a four is a great score, a five is mediocre, and a 3 is exceptional...so where is the disagreement
Does anyone have a technical reason like a rule/guideline/formula why 911 is a par 4 and not a par 5?
