That's not true. Holing out from 140 is impressive, but they are saying that it's an eagle and not an albatross (effectively). If he hit his drive 420 and holed out from 140, they would likely consider it an albatross. I happen to agree with the guys that while it's factually and technically an albatross, it wouldn't be an albatross I would brag about. I mean, let's be real, the hole went from 450 yards with a 300+ drive, to now being 475 with a 320+ yard drive. I believe he's trying to justify the length at this point with bullsh**.
I'm not gonna dig through the thread, but I believe he said it was 450-475, and his drive was upwards of 300 yards the first time he brought up details.
Whether or not you guys would consider it an albatross is irrelevant. It is. Period. Is it the most impressive albatross? Hardly, but that's not the point. If I holed out on a 97 yard par 3, you bet your ass I'd be talking about my hole in one.
On a side note, I find it completely hypocritical for some of you guys to post what you're posting after all the talk of "teeing it forward" and all that other BS. So tee it forward, but when you do, you can't accomplish anything...put an asterisk on it.
I guess I'm gonna play from the tips everywhere even though my handicap doesn't call for it, just so any accomplishments can be recognized on here.
