Here’s a question…If below par is good why do most people mean bad or poorly when they say, “I’m feeling under/below par?”
Par simply means what the standard. If Par for the course is 72 then 72 strokes is the standard # of strokes needed to finnish the course. If you shoot under par you are doing well.
On the contrary if you are feeling under par, you are feeling worse than standard or normal, thus bad. 🙂
