Tell us what’s happening:
Don’t know what I’m missing

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 (name == 1) {
    return "Hole-in-one!"
  else if (name <= par - 2) {
    return "Eagle"
  else if (name == par - 1) {
    return "Birdie"
  else if (name == par) {
    return "Par"
  else if (name == par + 1) {
    return "Bogey"
  else if (name == par + 2) {
    return "Double Bogey"
  else if (name >= par + 3) {
    return "Go Home!"
  else {
  return "Change Me"
  // Only change code above this line

// Change these values to test
golfScore(5, 4);

Be careful not to use the assignment operator instead of an equality operator.

It still doesn’t work

Post your code again, so we can take a look. Please use 3 backticks on the line before and after the posted code, so it formats correctly.

I posted my code again

Why are you referring to a variable called “name”? You should be using the strokes variable passed into the function. name is an array and will never be equal to a number.

I am going to sleep now, but hopefully I have given you enough hints for you to correct your code.

Thank you very much! I really appreciate all your help.
