Here's the deal, folks: I'd like to play enough golf and birdie every hole at Whispering Woods in 2020. I'd like you to join me on this quest. So, I've set up a spreadsheet here:

Completed "Birdie - Challenge" yesterday with a great shot on the 18th hole to 2 feet for the final hole to bird. Made 4 birds yesterday and 3 again today. Decent rounds, but had a few poor swings

WooooOOOOOOO!!!!!! Finally pulled it off in about the 14th round at Whispering Woods (from the blue or black tees)! I needed 1 and 2, and most of the time, I'd show up and roll onto the first tee

I like the idea but of the 55 rounds this year I played 43 different courses.   

So? Sign up anyway. Pick the course you play the most. See how far you can get.

Use the notes column to denote how many rounds you've played there. It's not like it's serious. 🙂

Welcome to the 2020 TST Birdie Challenge. Rules? There are no rules. Just fill in your best score relative to par on the holes as you achieve them, and let's all...

Please click through, add your name, home course, and location, and when you make a par or a birdie, add that score to the sheet, with the idea that you're going to birdie all 18 holes on your home course this year.

If you're above a certain handicap and would like to make it a par challenge, go for it! Just add that note to the Notes column.

We can all cheer each other on and see where this takes us!

I’ve actually kept track of this myself as well (birdied 12/18 holes), but I assume we start fresh today. As y’all can probably infer from my “What’d You Shoot Today?” posts, I’m a bogey golfer, but I’d love to try the all-birdie challenge, because it won’t take me long to par every hole on my course. I have confidence in myself that I can make birdie on every hole!

Yes, the 2020 challenge starts today. 🙂 

And yes, I encourage people to do the birdie challenge, but if you're a 30, the par challenge is fine, too.

I signed up. I haven't birdied all 18 holes at my "home" course in the four or five years I've been playing there, but let's see how many I can knock off this year.

I signed up. Going through 2019 mentally, if I’d tracked it last year I think I got 1, 2, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 17, and 18, which pretty closely tracks with the difficulty of those holes vs. the holes I didn’t birdie. And I’m pretty sure a few in there I’ve never birdied  

So here’s hoping I get those plus the other five in 2020.

Of my two home courses, I'm picking the shorter one. Hawk, over the Eagle, with its hazards, isn't really easier in the overall sense, but there are a lot fewer of those 400-plus par fours.

Cool, I'm in.

I've been meaning to do this after I heard the NLU guys discuss doing it on their home course. For me personally I'm going for a mixed par/birdie challenge because birdies are pretty rare for me. Par on 1-9 handicap holes, birdie on 10-18 handicap holes. Stretch goal of birdie on 1-9 handicap holes.

    • He also said if conditions were not just right he would not do it.  I’m not sure if he’s had the wind to his back or not on the first two rounds but I believe that is a factor,
    • I used my new Clicgear 4.0 on Wednesday for 9 holes. So far so good. Much better than my 25 year old 2 wheeler. I use a stand bag and the bag did not move at all which is nice. It was on a very flat course though. I want to use it on my usual hilly course before I decide for sure that I don't need the bag cozy. 
    • Looks like the OP's already made his decision, but still I'll put in a good word for the Bridgestone Tour B stand bag.  There are both 5- and 14-way versions.  I have the 14-way version.  I haven't used it, much, yet, but so far I've no complaints.  Stand seems substantial and the mechanism has so far worked flawlessly.  Additionally: It has a Velcro strap you can fasten across the bottoms of the legs to prevent them from being deployed inadvertently, which I feel is a nice touch. If there was one thing I wish they done it would've been to attach the carry harness with clips, so it could be removed for cart carry.
    • I did notice he's using an older model Cobra BioCell driver, so maybe he's still working some kinks out of his equipment.
    • I read he ran into a performance issue with his new driver and reverted to the driver he'd been using beforehand.  So perhaps he's playing his drives a bit more cautiously?
