  1. 1. Have You Ever Made An Eagle By Reaching A Par 5 In Two Shots?

    • No, Never. And I suspect I never will reach a par 5 in two.

    • Yes, I have reached a par 5 in two and converted the putt for eagle.

    • Yes, I've reached par 5's in two, but haven't been able to convert by making the putt. ... yet.

    • Never reached a par 5 green in 2, but I'm working on my length and suspect I will get some eagle putts on par 5's in the future.

I'm in the 275-300 bracket, but I'm not hitting more than 40% fairways and even from the FW I don't hit more than maximum 10% of the greens from 225+. I'm not a scratch golfer, but I'm above average, and I don't think I have more than 1 putt for eagle every 10 rounds on my home course. 

Your course does seem to have slightly more difficult than average par 5s.  You do have 5 of them though where most courses would have 4 or less.  Most golfers are going to have a larger mix of golf courses that they play though, and will be bound to play more shorter par 5s in favorable conditions than you do.

I do get your point though.  I don't get many chances either.  I am only in the 250-275 bucket, and play 90% of my rounds at my home course.  In fact, the only times I have made an eagle at my home course (playing my own ball from one of the two sets of back tees) are from chip ins.  I've been a member there 17 years now.  We even have two reachable par 5s in the 490 yard range.  However, I have at least one made eagle putt at another course during that same time period.  I also have played in 3 scrambles at my home course over that time period where I have hit the first two shots and sunk the eagle putt.  The fact that I make them in scrambles tells me that I would make more if I were able to play more aggressively.

Yes, but you'd probably also make a lot more high numbers.  The risk/reward for an aggressive shot is very different in a scramble, especially if someone on your team has already put the ball into play.

Agreed.  I do usually play the holes the same way alone as I do in a scramble, but probably 3-5% less aggressively and 25% less freely.  I'm sort of postulating though that I have and make eagle putts at a higher percentage at other courses because I have less mental damage as to where I can get in trouble?

Never managed it on my course, but although I am not a big hitter, managed it on another course last month

    • Day 205.  Five minutes of full swing (6-iron), usual routine, in the indoor room after work today. An aside.  I'm very happy that I'm keeping up daily practice, even if most days are only a few minutes.  
    • Maybe. Nothing in the scenario states you’re never going to play that well again.
    • Day 67 (9/30/22): Today I went back to preset drills. I did a short session of them, then went to abbreviated backswing swings, trying to capture the same feel. Then I played a simulated round, trying to see how often I could get the impact position with real swings in a real round. I give myself a C. I think I probably executed the move correctly in maybe 1/3 of the full swings. A second third were not perfect but better than my usual swing. The other 1/3 were bad swings, the old swing. I also felt a little pain in my neck and so I was swinging sort of easy, and I skipped post-round practicing to rest it. 
    • Maybe I read it wrong or just think totally different than everyone else. I read both as a stand alone type event. Like you have that score one time, but never play that good again. Obviously if it means I had a significant breakthrough in my game and had that game the it would mean more in that context. But I'd still take the ace over a stand out one time only great score overall.
