Hello I’m stuck on the Golf Code part of this challenge. I had the first half down put after I get done with the par I got stuck. I feel like I’m getting confused by the golf concept as well here. Here is my code

var names = ["Hole-in-one!", "Eagle", "Birdie", "Par", "Bogey", "Double Bogey", "Go Home!"];
function golfScore(par, strokes) {
  // Only change code below this line
  if (par >= 1 && strokes === 1 ){
    return names[0];
  } else if(par >= 2 && strokes === 2 ) {
    return names[1];
  } else if (par >= 3 && strokes === 3){
    return names [2];
  } else if (par >= 4 && strokes >= 4){
    return names[3];
  } else if (par >= 4 && strokes  ){
    return names[4];
  } else if (par >= 4  )
  
  return "Change Me";
  // Only change code above this line
}

// Change these values to test
golfScore(4, 5);

In golf, each hole is given a number of strokes it would take most good players to get the ball in the hole, this is called the holes’ par - so for example, the longer holes in golf are a par 5, that means if you get the ball in the hole in 5 shots, you got a par on that hole - if you made it in 4 shots (1 less than par), you got a birdie - 3 shots (2 less than par) = eagle - and going the other direction, if you made it in 6 shots (1 more than par), it’s a bogey, 7 = double bogey… so the label given to the score for the hole is the deviation from par, if the hole was a par 4, then finishing it in 3 shots would be a birdie - so what you want to do is make your tests check how far away from par the strokes are, maybe something like…
if(par + 1 === strokes ) { return "bogey" } — hope that helps

Thanks I think this helps!
