So that's when I thought about throwing three darts and just counting the first dart to hit the number, but then how do you score the hit?    

T
his kind of became an obsession with me, and I started spending all my time trying to work out a system that could and would be a challenge to a good darter, and at the same time incorporate the (rules and) scores of golf.

     Well, after a while (about 12 months) I found that I could usually hit all the numbers 1-18 with three darts, but I still didn't know how to score the hits. Now during this time I had noticed that I would some times hit the triple ring and some times I would hit the double ring and I thought it should count differently for that but I still wasn't sure how.
     Well to make a long (about another 6 months) story short I came up with the idea of just using 1 dart for each hole(or number) 1-18 and now if I hit a triple it counted as an eagle -2 and a double counted as a birdie -1 any thing in the pie was par. (I was just happy to get pars) if you missed the pie then it was a bogie +1. This was the beginning!

     As time went on I felt it was to easy (lucky) to hit the triple ring while trying to get par. So I reversed the scoring thus making the triple ring count as a birdie -1 and the double ring count as an eagle -2. This made more sense to me, and at the same time gave me reason to practice my double ins and outs for 01 game. This was good but I'm not a bogie golfer (for those that don't understand what that means is I shoot double, and believe it or not I've shot triple bogies on a real golf course). So I notice that now that the double ring was an eagle I shot at the double more (it was good practice for shooting double outs) and now I would hit outside the wire of the double ring, but still on the board. That's when I decided to count that as a double bogie (2 over par).

     Well that brought me to how, or what do I do about triple bogies (3 over par), and that's when I thought about when I slipped, and threw a dart completely off the board, and it hit the wall. That became a triple bogie + 3, or the other way was when I hit a wire, and bounced my dart on the ground that became a triple bogie +3.

     There it was all the parts were together. Par, bogie, birdie, double bogie, eagle, and even triple bogies.
