Three birdies today but all repeats.

Whatever, f***er. You have to do it every month. You're almost done with January, so congrats. 😄

I played 9 holes on my course today. Had 3 birdie chances inside of about 15 feet. Left two about a foot short in the jaws, blew the third one by without scaring the cup. Would have been nice to get one of those, especially with 2 of them being on pretty long par 3s.

I started birdie, birdie yesterday (I don't think it's ever happened to me before!) and had a round with 3 birdies last week, but both were on a different course than the one I selected for this... In time, maybe.

2. I assume Mike made another 37 birdies.

3. I click the topic.

4. My suspicions are confirmed.

i am gonna take up this challenge.  So far only one round this year and no birdies.  Was a tournament that was wrecked by a lost ball on the fairway and that led to a stretch of triple double triple and ended my hopes.  Hoping to birdie at least one hole this month in one or max two more rounds

Another 2 rounds this weekend. 7 birdies but 3 of them where repeated.
It´s hard to catch @mvmac but I will do my best. 

Next week i will play a Mid Am in another course so.. nothing to report in the next 10 days.

That's fine, Mike, but you only have about 17 days left in your January Birdie Challenge. February will be a bitch if you can't get January, but at least you have 29 days this year. 😄

Man, not sure how I missed this topic when it was posted. Anywho-sounds like a fun challenge. With being a 18 capper I will make this a Par challenge (but will track birdies too if they happen!). My home course is a 27 hole course, so I choose my favorite Houston course that I play often as well....Memorial Park Golf Course. I have played once and made 7 pars! 11 more to go this year.

I think make it a par challenge until you beat that in March or April… then switch over to a birdie challenge. 🙂

There's no wrong way to do it, and there are no prizes, but you're selling yourself short if you think it'll be tough to achieve a par challenge, IMO.

I'm in.  Managed to get one round in before the snow. Hole #8 is off the board-  17 to go!

    • I chose break 80.  From 6400 yards, length would not be an issue, should have short irons in on most holes.  I would hope to shoot right around a 72-76 somewhere in there.  I like faster greens over slower, but I think during regular (non-Masters) days, they would be rolling around a 10-11 maybe.  
    • Agree completely.  So @Bob T, how about letting us know which of our suppositions are correct?  Also, where did you take your relief?  Oh, the original post mentions that you "placed" the ball, did you place it or drop it?  I know I'm being picky, but this is how I learned about the rules myself.  Learning the rules is a process, one that is almost never complete.
    • I'd spend a month practicing putting up to the date of my round and shoot mid-high 70s. With my current game it's probably high 70s-low 80s.
    • My maths was dodgy (geometry not a strength), but that has no influence on the rules observations I was making. But I believe we are agreeing the following: a)  IF the player can play a functional stroke with the 4 rescue back into the fairway, and that cart path interferes with that functional stroke, then the player is entitled to relief, but b) IF the player's stroke with the 4 rescue that has heel interference with the cart path is not a reasonable stroke in the circumstances, then the player is not entitled to relief. That is, if the only reasonable stroke to get the ball back into the fairway would not involve interference with the cart path, then there is no relief entitlement. So we have provided Bob T with the tools to answer his question whether relief was legitimate. We have also guided on where relief needed to have been taken if it was the case that relief was legitimate. If Bob wishes to provide any further information, we could refine this advice further.
    • for me, I don't really care what other people take, I hate it when they give me one...I occasionally play in tournaments and I can tell you, when I have been stepping up and knocking in the 1 and 2 footers regularly, I feel no extra pressure. Play a round where people, trying to be friendly, are "giving" me 2,3,4'ers, shipping them back to me before I can get to the ball (I routinely lag putt to pretty close from a good distance across the green, and people routinely ship them back), when I get to the tournament, that "gimme" suddenly becomes a nervous putt.   If people want to give and take putts to each other, and it is not a tournament...knock yourself out but please, leave my ball alone. I like to finish every putt, even the "it is 100% to make that one on the lip"....yeah, it is but I like to finish the hole. I paid to play a complete course, not everything but the finish.     Now, to get down off my soapbox...
