no sweatpar is the score or number of strokes it should take the average player to complete each hole. for ex. if a hole is par 3 and you take 3 shots to get it in the hole then you have finished that hole par. but if you take 4 shots you are one over par or if you take 2 shots you are one under par.

par is NOT what the average player can do. Par is how many strokes a very skilled golfer should take for each hole.
