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'm in.  I can think of potentially 2 holes that I wouldn't have birdied. But, I have no idea. I'm also looking to see how many of the holes I can put down an eagle for.

I played about 40 rounds at this course in 2019 with 60 birdies and 2 eagles.  I birdied 16 different holes, but somehow never birdied the shortest two par 3's.  Imagine that!

  • If you truly play only 20-40 rounds per year, and never more than a handful at the same course, consider trying to birdie holes numbered 1 to 18 across all of your courses. Or even doing it twice. Yeah, some hole #17s will be easier birdies than others, but that's why you might do it twice.

That's me, but hopefully more than 40 rounds.  But even that is across over 20 courses.  I'll try it.  .....  once the snow melts.....

I'm in. I think I had birdies on 13 of the holes there in 2019 (around 25 rounds), but there are a few holes that I don't really expect to be able to get a birdie on, probably ever. 

Fun thing to do and root for: thanks @iacas!

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. 

Is a 2 on the 4th even possible?

I can count on one hand the amount of times I’ve seen it happen, and never by me haha.

Cool idea, I'm in.

Jeezus, Mike, play the back tees or something. You'll be done by February.

Also, whoever is playing at Tilden Park GC, your name is currently just ")". 🙂

Checked off #6 and #7 today (almost made 2) and parred 11. Still haven't birdied #3 lol (easiest hole on the course).

I think the ones that will take me the longest will be #4 and #12.

lol

I should note that all my birdies/eagles I'll input will be from the black tees. Typically play blue tees (one up) on Wednesday so whatever I do on Wednesdays won't count.

Count me in! But my golf season won’t start until May since I am up in the mountains skiing full time right now!

I actually started keeping track of this on my own 2 years ago, just to see if I can par every whole at my course (27 holes). Last season I par all 27 holes multiple times, so I started tracking birdies too. But was only able to birdie 11 of the 27. Let’s see if I can do better this year!

Three rounds.

I can only wish that one day I'll have that many this early. I played on new years day, but it wasn't at the course that I am doing this challenge on. 40 degrees and windy, but walking makes it not so bad. I might not play for another 2-3 months though based on weather.

    • I keep coming back to this whenever I think about this topic. What an odd exclamation for him to say, out all the possibilities. 
    • Maybe 30 courses.  WA, OR, Kauai, AZ, CA, Cabo and Puerto Vallarta. Bend Oregon and Sedona Arizona have some great golf.  
    • They are about making money, but reputation is also worth a lot of money. If your supply chain involves human rights issues, bribery, exploitation, etc., and your customers find out, you can lose a lot more money than you saved with lower cost raw materials or manufacturing sites. And I mean a lot more.  The company I retired from spends considerable resources to determine if the supply chain meets the company’s core values. I was part of those teams. PR is hugely important. Keeping customers is absolutely vital. Premium products can cost more because those supply chain have been vetted. The company’s reputation depends on it.  A hypothetical concern was raised about RL in the thread above with no data support that accusation. For all we know, RL has fully vetted their supply chain and that is why they are so ready to protect their brand. I hope JT learns from that.
    • 100% Agreed - I don’t think I could’ve recalled that word from the 80’s-90’s if you paid me. It’s so obsolete. If he pulled that out of thin air at a moment of frustration, clearly it’s not that obsolete from his vocabulary.    Having said that, when someone does something they regret, I try not to judge them in their worst moments as I wouldn’t want to be judge in mine.  But don’t give me that “it’s not me” line. Let’s be honest.
