Substandard, not acceptable.

If you really think about it, this saying is backwards. In golf, to be below par is good, however in this saying below par means bad. What a crazy world we live in...
Teacher: Your report was well below par, which is why it received an F.
Smart golfer: If it was below par, then why did I get an F? That sounds pretty silly to me.
