"I had birdied the ninth hole and was teeing up at the tenth"

A 'Birdie' in golfing terms reflects a very good score for the golfer and means they have scored 'one-under par' on any given golf hole.

Meanwhile, a par refers to number of strokes it should take an expert golfer to complete a hole and usually number three, four and five.

Scoring a birdie can mean the golfer has achieved a two on a par-three hole, a three on a par-four hole, a four on a par-five hole or a five on a par-six hole.
