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

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.

    • Is this more what I should look like at the top? Or is this too laid off?     
    • Great! I recently adjusted my lofts 3 degrees strong on my old set of Golfsmith Tour Model IV irons from the late 80's. The old loft angles were outdated so with this change, the irons are on a much better trajectory now.    
    • Even the 90 degree rule beats cart path only.  Which most golfers promptly turn into the 25 degree rule.
    • Day 23 (5,11) - Rented a practice bay at the PGA store.  Wanted to get a better idea of ball flight than hitting into a net.  Also hit the driver for the first time since overhauling my takeaway.  Overall, I was pleased, but still have a long ways to go to where I am able to repeat this takeaway and backswing every time.
    • Business marketing 101.....For many years I was in the Procurement Dept at a local mining/manufacturing site.  As you can surmise I heard "new", "improved", "more reliable", "better than last year's",.... again and again and again.  Boogielicious is right, Marketing spends tons of bucks to make the biggest claims possible while staying in the bounds of defensible claims by Legal.  The regulatory gurus have the OEM's and related crews in such a narrow box for improving things, they have to make the consumer "think" it sounds, hits, swings, plays, flies, lands, goes in the hole better than ever....or else we would not buy it.  Fender continues to reinvent, excuse me "tweak" the Telecaster guitar, yet when you look at it  - it is pretty much the same guitar that Leo debuted in the 1950's with some slightly improved electronics, tuners, fret wire, etc.  A golf club is still a stick with a head of some sort on it and a golf ball is still a golf ball (but comes with dimples now!) and the game is still something we all enjoy to have a good discussion about.
