I am currently familiarizing myself with golf, and it looks like an interesting spot. I was watching the Safeway Open and saw Sam Burns take a two-shot lead into the weekend. For the golfers here, what do the terms birdie and double-bogey mean? Is anyone following the new PGA Tour season?

I think golf looks so boring, so I can't say that I follow it. I like hearing about the gossip though. My father plays golf, so I can tell you that double-bogey means the golfer sunk the ball within two strokes. I'm not sure what birdie means though. I never heard him use that term.

I'm no expert, but I golf with workmates sometimes. Par = the number of strokes that a golfer is expected to take to sink the ball. Birdie = 1 less than that number. I don't watch golf on telly and I don't follow the pros.
