Tell us what’s happening:

Please ca someone help - I just can’t work out where I am going wrong?

Your code so far

var names = ["Hole-in-one!", "Eagle", "Birdie", "Par", "Bogey", "Double Bogey", "Go Home!"];
function golfScore(par, strokes) {
// Only change code below this line
if (strokes = 1) {
return names[0];
} else if (strokes <= par -2) {
return names[1];
} else if (strokes == par -1) {
return names[2];
} else if (strokes == par) {
return names[3];
} else if (strokes == par +1) {
return names[4];
} else if (strokes == par +2) {
return names[5];
} else {
return names[6];
// Only change code above this line

golfScore(5, 4);

The only mistake you’ve made is to use

if (strokes=1)
//instead of using
if (strokes==1)

You quite literally made no mistake, I don’t see why should you thank me! Nonetheless, you’re welcome. I’m almost at the same point as you are.
