Albatross (Double Eagle)!

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 

So I have never made a hole in one.. well I did on a par 3 course that was 40 yards but I dont count that. I get into the conversation sometimes on whether or not I would rather make a hole in one or double eagle. I couldnt decide.

 

On the 2nd of this month I was on hole 13 at Stonebridge Dye. Piped a drive down the middle which left me 261 to the flag, a little breeze and a touch uphill to a tucked pin.Ripped at 3wood just right of the pin... couldnt see the hole sadly. Went up there and found out I holed it out! So pumped! haha finished with a couple more birdies to shoot a 67 and couldnt have felt any better.

 

Just thought Id share! 

 

Anybody else out there ever made a double?

I've made 2 hole in ones. On May 9 three years ago playing the 16th at Crofton Country club hit my drive down the center and smoked a 4 wood to a front pin and watched it go in. The funny thing was we were playing a stabelford and didn't know how to give it a point value as an eagle was the most anyone had ever gotten and that was extremely rare. I'll take the double eagle over the ace any day.

Congrats brother!  Still waiting for my first alby!  Finally broke through with my first hole and one.  Got it a couple months ago on a 320 yard par 4. B-)

If you aced a par 4, that's a double eagle or albatross.

CONGRATS!!! 

 

I've never had a hole in one but did have a double eagle/albatross July 4th weekend on a Par 5 at the incredibly tough Eagle Ridge course at Yatesville KY. I was and still am stoked about it...., it felt awesome!!!

 

God Bless!!! Ray

lol If you really did that and didn't realize that's an Albatross and technically an "Ace" all in one, you're going to be celebrating hard tonight I hope. That's the holy grail in golf if you ask me and I would have slept with that ball with a Crown Royal smile on my face.

I made a good drive on the Par 5 and was about 210-215 from the pin, hit a good 5 wood and seen the ball land on the green but thought it had ran through, when we got to the green one of my playing partners was fixing my divot and I was looking for the ball off the back because I didn't see it on the green. He said your not going to believe this but your ball is in the hole. If I didn't have on cleats I would have attempted to moonwalk around the green. lol

 

God Bless!!! Ray

post #17 of 21

that's awesome, congratulations!! i actually just shot my first legit eagle last week. (no mulligans or drops) my second shot was blind and i pulled up to the green to see my ball less than 6 inches from the hole making for an easy eagle put!  As excited as i was that i shot an eagle, i can't help but think how close i was to a double eagle.

Same here, made a dbl eagle but never an ace... Kinda annoying but least I don't have to participate in dumbest tradition ever (buying others drinks)
