  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'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

    • There's more grass in them now than shortly after the renovation. It grows over time. Cool. Here's the deal we'll make you. If you're right, we'll remove your restrictions. If you're wrong, you'll never again be permitted to whine about how "easy" a golf course played (particularly given that you wouldn't likely break 90 at it), and if you do, you're gone forever.
    • Looks alot  like those  "native areas" a few  years  back that were supposed to be tough but ended  up being  just another fairway shot  unless you were  very  unlucky and  got right  behind a tuft  of  grass. I  predict  -15 for the win. Someone will be  -8 at the end  of the day tomorrow.
