look up any word, like dirty sanchez:
 
1.
below average. Deriving from the term in golf "par" meaning average, and sub meaning below.
the definitions below are sub par at best.
 
2.
Another way to look at someone tagged as sub par is to see them as undervalued.
Although Michael the tin-pot weasel vice president referred to Eleanor the manager as sub par, she knew that she was undervalued in the organization, and soon left for a job with far better compensation. Michael, on the other hand, found himself fired for consistently treating the company's clients like dirt.

5.
Something that is of above average quality. In golf, a score that is subpar or below par is better than a score that is above par. Therefore if something was above average, you could say that thing was subpar.
