2021 TST Birdie Challenge


iacas

Recommended Posts

I had my best ball striking round in a long time from the back tees today with a smooth 76 and added birdies to #4 and my most birdied hole last year #12. I missed 2 birdie chances from inside 6 and 8 feet and I had lots of looks today hitting 2/3s of the greens. The wind was blowing a solid 15 and I played the TP5x which held its line pretty well. Good start to the birdie challenge with 3 rounds and 4 down.

I'm in!

Three rounds this year, and I've managed three birdies so far, one on 17 which might not happen again all year.

I expect that 6, 13, and 18 will be the most difficult to get for me.

  • 6 is a 420yd par 4, a small stream cuts across the fairway about 140 out from the green,
  • 13 is a 200yd par 3, with a wide but shallow green that I rarely hit
  • 18 is a 400yd par 4 that should be easier than it is - visually, water and trees pinch in before the green, but I'm often 160-170 out, so it shouldn't be that difficult

...also been away from TST for a few years, so this seems a good way to get back in!

I got my first bird of the year yesterday! In the middle of a struggling round, I made a twisty little eight-footer on the par-3 tenth hole for a deuce.

Managed another couple today, and took out the “double bubble “ in the process

(  A side bet to the midweek group, nearest the pin on a designated par 3 , and with a two )

I added #3 and the dubious #6 (a sandy in the can) for a total 6 birdies in 4 rounds. So now I have 3, 4, 6, 7, 12, 13. The only hole to hide from parksy is #2 which is my bogey hole. Two is not that difficult, it's a par 4 390 with OB left and trees right. I seem to flirt left a little too much lately.

Got my 4th birdie this afternoon on the 3rd hole.

Had a tailwind on a short par 4. Drove it 10 yards short of the green. Knocked it close. Sank the putt. 🙂

What’s going on!

After being the only hole I didn’t birdie last year, I’ve birdied number 1 two days in a row 😎

Karma!

And again today!

Also ticked off stroke holes 3 & 6 , had a couple of reasonable eagle chances.

Course is running a lot, very dry as is common for the time of year.

Alright, I signed up for this again. Last year I literally only played 2 rounds on "my home course". I am bound and freaking determined to play more golf this year!

F.U. CORONA VIRUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm in again this year as "Par Challenge".  Last year I pared 12 of 18 on home course and 0 birdies.  I look to fair better this year.  Do not expect a round at home course until April so I'll be dormant her in Michigan for a little while.

Today was a big birdie day with 3 (5, 13, 17) in the first round shooting 78 and then in the PM, I birdied another 3 (6, 10, 11) in a skins game. I finally got the last par with the illusive #2. To sum it up on the home course, in 6 rounds I have 11 birdies and 7 pars.

disastrous round today - three-way miss (left, right, and ...fat) and no confidence.  But I birdied 12!  ...and it was this challenge that kept my head in the game for the final three holes... (So, thanks to @Iacas for the challenge!)

First “home course” birdie of 2021 today! The hole I birdied was the par-5 ninth (only 443 whites). I needed to get up-and-down from in front of the green, which is no easy task on that hole, especially with the pin in front where it was today. I’m hoping for another crack at getting some birdies tomorrow!

Two more rounds in the books and nothing last week. Today brought a kick-in on 12 and a 2 footer on 17. Too bad I already had those done for the challenge!
