2022 TST Birdie Challenge

Recommended Posts

Added a couple of new birdies on my away course. 

Hole 3 (a short par 3 - 130 yards) - Very tough pin-location in the back right on the top shelf of the green. I took a bit off my AW (downhill and down wind) and landed it perfectly at the top of the slope going up to the top shelf and it stopped 4 feet from the hole. 

Hole 4 (A 500 yards par 5 - 4 wood 260 to the 2nd cut on the right. Hit my 5 iron (a bit of a flyer lie) over the lake to the fringe around 10 yards from the pin from there and made the up'n'down from there. 

I've made par or better on all holes on the course now (6 rounds into the season) 

Going birdie-hunting again this afternoon 😉

Got another one yesterday on the local non home course:

Hole 13 (355 yards par 4) - teeshot is uphill and yesterday it was into wind, so I hit a 4W around 210 yards to the FW on top of the hill leaving me with 125 yards downhill shot into wind to a front center pin (easiest pin on that green) on long narrow green. Hit a knock down little fade with my PW and was left with 12 feet and made the putt!

Birdied 2 and 12 today.  Made a 15 footer on 2 and a kick-in on 12. Had both holes previously so no change on the spreadsheet.

The race is officially on, @sjduffers.  April was swirling the toilet bowl after a decent start in March.  Then the 9th hole at Pheasant Run cooperated.  We are tied, for now (Away Courses). Perhaps you have not been recording your data?  How far behind will I be when you update things?

Yesterday's round added two pars to my away composite (holes six and twelve).   However, the round was played alone, so I could not post for handicap purposes -- I hope it's okay to include in this challenge.  No birdies yesterday (weird round all-around anyway).

No backlog, I'm afraid. The few birdies I am making are ones I have already got, many times over. The others remain elusive, despite some of them being relatively easy (eg par 5s, or shorter par 4s). But the season is still long, and in fact probably only just beginning in earnest for you, @bkuehn1952  The race is on! 🙂

Knocked out 2, 3, and 4 today at Whispering Woods. We played 1-9, 10, 11, 12… and then jumped to 18 as we had to go. I had a number of other birdie putts, but you're not gonna make 'em all outside of three feet.

Snagged another on #6 yesterday.  Probably third one this year on that hole.  It's a short par 4, drivable for some of you guys, not me, that typically leaves a SW in to a small sloping green, well protected with traps if you fall short.  I hit my wedge about 12 feet past the pin and drained it for the bird.

Nice: 3 birdies in a row!!  What is your personal best, as how many consecutive birdies? The record on the PGA Tour is something crazy like 8!

I think mine is a measly 2. And most birdies in a round is 4, so far.

Sorry if it's a little bit  :offtopic:

Back to our ringer scores!

Will enter the year as par or better challenge.  

Update - “Home” course closed end of Feb due to sale.  To reopen in June for play - will resume documentation on it then.  The “other” course, pars on all 18 holes, chipping away tally for birdie.  Five down, thirteen to go.

2 birdies today and 2 yesterday, but only 1 of them to get recorded as a new birdie for the year.  5 holes remaining to birdie to complete all 18 this year.  One is a par 5 and one is a par 3.  The other 3 are long par 4s that I have problems reaching in regulation.  While I'm sure the par 5 and par 3 will not be a problem, I'm thinking the remaining par 4s might give me issues (unless I move to the next set of tees forward).

Last 2 rounds saw a few birdies, but not #7, 9, 10 or 11! Number 7 is the last par 5 I need and 11 is the shortest par 3 on the course. I got the toughest holes out of the way early, so no excuses!

5th round of the season on my home course and I finally got my first birdie: 

Hole 15 - 130 yards par 3. Island green with nothing to land on except the green. Hit a soft AW to the middle of the green with 11 feet left to the pin and finally drained one!
