[Ads-l] Par as in Golf

Could someone with access to the OED please post or send me its entry for
"par" in the golf sense? I'm especially interested in origins of use of the
term which (if memory serves - the "if" being the reason for this request)
was first used by the USGA in 1911, and is considered an Americanism that
ultimately forced the Brits to stop using their chaotic "bogey" system.
(I've been all over the internet and have lots of answers to this, but would
like some OED backup if possible). Many thanks in advance.
DAD
