2020 TST Birdie Challenge

My ski season was cut short due to a knee injury and covid-19. After 6 weeks of rehab, I finally got my first round of golf in today and shot a 79 with 10 pars + 1 birdie!

@iacas I just remembered my home course has 27 holes and which 18 I play on a given day is random. How should I enter my score?

Many ski resorts here have closed...including Whistler Blackcomb which still has 6+ weeks left....I've skied Whistler in May....then downloaded at 1pm to go play golf at the Whistler Golf Club.

Sorry to hear about your injured messed up ski season.

I say pick the 18 you play the most frequently. The other nine will be like a course that isn't your "home course," and if you play it and nine on your "home 18" then those nine holes on your "home" 18 can count.

Checked two more off this list yesterday. I have now birdied all 4 of the par 5's, but only one par 3 and one par 4. Now comes the hard part.

I'm with you.  Three rounds in, and I've birdied all four par-5s, and two short par-4s, I've got all the low-hanging fruit.

Dude - I’ll make 1 birdie every 1-2 rounds. So jealous

I generally play 15-20 rounds/year spanning 6-7 courses, so I will have to piece it together. 

Hole 1 - Pendleton GC, Ruther Glen VA

Hole 8 - Pendleton GC, Ruther Glen, VA

Total: 2/18

Two rounds in for me, looking forward to what this looks like in 6 months.

Played yesterday and birdied #7, which is an easy par 4 at our course.  Good enough though, no one else in the croup cut me off.   Today, I was running a bit late, no practice warm up and started off good with a birdie on #1 par 5, followed by a birdie on #9 par 5 and another on #10 par 5.  A pretty good round for me today with 3 birdies.

Birdie on #2 today.  I never got within about 10' of my playing group today.  We are playing with raised cups so nobody has to put a hand in the cup either.  Not sure how much longer our course will be able to stay open.

2 yesterday puts me over the halfway mark at 10.    :dance:

Interestingly, I still have one par-5, a shortish par-4, and the easiest par-3 on the course available.

You still get to post that in the spreadsheet as a -2 instead of the -1.

Yep I did for March, I eagled it last time I played it, so it was a repeat.

I mean on the main tab of the spreadsheet. I still just see birdies.
