I got my first birdie today!

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 

Hello,
Today I got my first birdie! No one in my family golfs so I had no one to really celebrate it with. I played with 3 other guys though, really nice, who congratulated me though. It was a long par 3 (195 yards) and I hit a 5 wood stinger with a slide fade. I ended up 35 yards short of the green. I took out my new 2009 Vokey wedge and..... I holed it! Bounced once on the green and then rolled and hit the flagstick to drop! Haha I apologize, I didn't know where to post this. It's a really big milestone for me.

 

Thanks so much and may god bless you all! ^_^

Congratulations, that's great!

I've got to ask though......a 17 hcp and you've never had a birdie before?

Really! Hopefully he means the 1st one for this year.

Congrats on the bird... I'm sure you'll have many more.

Ha no, unfortunately I have to say this is my first birdie ever. I make pars with the occasional bogey consistently, hence the 17 handicap, but I've never been able to successfully make a birdie.

Sorry Kevin..... Sounds as if you still haven't grown up.

This is lame. I have a friend who never breaks 100 and even he has made an eagle. Hole in one, okay, double eagle, shout it out. Birdie? :YAWN:

I know sir, even though a lot of players of pretty much any handicap have had at least one birdie before, this one a big monument for me. Thank you for bringing me back down to earth! It's only a birdie and I could always strive to get that eagle next time!

You have a history of lying on this forum. You continue to do so, and you insult the intelligence of the membership with your drivel.

Was that clear enough?

May I ask, what would be my motive for lying about this? What would I even benefit from that? I was excited that I was finally able to break a mental barrier and not completely yip or shank a shot when it really mattered. I am proud and it was a great rush of feeling, and I don't know how I am insulting your intelligence? Did I directly say a mean or hurtful comment, angled at you? An insulting post would be me, bragging about how I had such a great shot. I was just trying to say how incredibly happy I was to be so lucky. Please do not take this post the wrong way.I am truly, wholeheartedly, not trying to insult you at all. For all I know, you are a good man who does many great things. I wouldn't be so quick to judge someone not knowing the true them. Therefore, I do not wish you feel that I am trying to insult you, and I apologize. I feel angered and kind of upset how you think I would try to insult the members' intelligence on this site, and I wish that maybe we could talk in a private message and get to the root of my problems.

Guys, most of us know the history pretty well. Let's put that aside. From what he said, the kid made his first birdie. It's kind of odd, I'll admit, that it is his first one but weirder things have happened so whatever. Congrats to the kid. No need to turn this into another thread like the one linked to above.
