Re: First hole birdie curse...reality or not??It's definitely mental with me, and a two way street. It doesn't matter where in the round it occurs, but more times than not a birdie will be followed with a bogey and a bogey or worse will be followed with a birdie. I get pissed with any bogey or worse and vow to birdie the next. When I birdie, I tell myself not to blow the next hole.
As far as the first hole goes, I'm almost relieved with a bogey as I usually tell myself that's out of the way and I can on with business. Well, not really relieved.
