Double 2 makes 3? If anything, a 3-under should be An-Eagle-and-a-Half.

You're asking sports terms to make sense? Like how tennis points are love, 15, 30, and 40?

I added "one-word" to the clue to get rid of this double eagle nonsense. Some interesting facts: The odds of shooting an albatross are 1 in 6 million. But it's possible to do even better. A hole-in-one on a par 5 is known as a "condor", and has actually been done four times.

It's not nonsense...I've never heard of an albatross and I've heard of a double eagle a number of times. Wikipedia notes the same. An albatross around your neck for not accepting double eagle from the start. ;-)

Just came back from a golf course and saw your golf quiz, which is a great one - not too difficult, but sure it helps if one is a golfer. Condor was a new term.
