What did you score on your first hole ever?

I par'd believe it or not. I hit a very low drive that carried about 120 yards and rolled for 100. Hit my approach shot over the green, then chipped it within a foot and tapped it in for par.

I started playing when I was a little kid. It likely took me 20+ shots just to get to the green 470yds away!

I remember getting to the point that I could make it to my dad's drive on my second shot. Man was that a rush! Now, 25+ years later, I asked my dad if he gets that same rush when his second shot reaches my drive. LOL, he doesn't find that question funny at all.

It was a 485 yard par 5, straight as an arrow..I remember worrying "How the hell was I gonna get the ball all the way down there" lol.

I think I was 2 or 3 over par

Last year in July time,I had been practising a lot on the range and had played the odd short course or two.

I decided not to count up my score as it was my first time on a 6000+ course.This particular course has a first hole length of 521 yds,so a baptism of fire.
Hit first drive high and to the right,then did it again.Lost four balls on that first hole and ended up with an 11,although it may have been more as I lost count after losing that many balls.

Funny enough was at the same course this week and just shaved the hole for par,so i'm glad I stuck with it.

My first hole was recorded by my mother at a small executive course in DisneyWorld, FL. I can't watch it after the three straight dribbled tee shots off the tee.

However, I parred the final hole after my chip on sat 6 inches away from the cup.

And a new addiction was born.

Mine was 4 years ago at age 52. 500 yard par 5 with a small pond on the right side of the tee box that extended only about 40 yeards past the box and wide open the rest of the way. I shanked my drive into the water and ended up with an 9.

as a FULL lefty, I can remember it from last year.

Cant really remember my first hole from back in the righty days.

Traveled to visit dad, first official time hitting the lefty driver on a course. Not a left friendly course at all. First tee they said "keep the ball on the left side as it funnels down to the right quite a bit".

I sliced that bad boy WAY out of play, triple bogey on the par 4.

Next hole par 3, hit a beauty of an 8 iron in a very strong wind, 2 putt for a par. Played 8-9 rounds over the next 2 weekends of that trip. Started playing pretty well by the time it was over.

Had enough omg, where did that come from? ... bliss type of shots that started to get me hooked.

my pops took me to a pitch and putt. It was a 105 yard hole. I hit a 9 iron over the green. tried to chip a sand wedge..but i had no touch or clue what touch was.... i hit it REALLY hard..but got so lucky that it hit the flag and dropped down about 2 feet from the cup. i tapped it in for par and thought:

this game's easy... I WAS SO WRONG!

    • Day 6.  Played fourball, lost 2&1.  Hit the ball well, drove it much better than I usually do, putted better than Sunday but not as good as I'd have liked.   Made two putts over 10' during the round, so that was cool. 
    • In addition to the above: The idea of Tiger being in a wheelchair for months does not imply that he is a cripple unable to get around any other way, it refers to the idea that a sensible way of aiding rehabilitation is to keep the injuries stable, and keeping undue weight off them is an important way of doing so. He will most likely get to a point within a couple of months, or several weeks or a perhaps just a few weeks where he can use a combination of both crutches and a wheelchair. In the same way that he'd be crazy to use stairs when he can use a lift at a certain point in his recovery.    
    • Lots of speculation there. 😉 I don't think there have been any people who have stated categorically what they KNOW will happen. The consensus would be that the implications are dire with regard to a return to top level competitive golf and pretty much everyone hopes that he will be able to return to some semblance of normality sooner rather than later. Most people have focused on Tiger the person rather than Tiger the golfer, which I think is pretty fair and reasonable. Also, he has more than a "broken leg and fractured ankle". Those terms cover a wide range, obviously, but this was no minor accident. The topic of the thread invited people to speculate, as you have done. I think it's all pretty moot, anyway. I would speculate that the last thing he would want to do would be to be seen as a charity case or a freak show "wildcard" tournament entry and shoot 86 and then withdraw. I don't think people have said that a return would CAUSE further major injury, it's a question of whether the current injuries will prevent a serious return to COMPETITIVE tournament play which is the only thing that interests him with regard to his presence at a tournament  as a player. (I think)
    • I always laugh when something like this happens and all the interweb know-it-alls start speculating... "he'll be in a wheelchair for the next 12 months!" - over a broken leg and fractured ankle?  He will not be in a wheelchair for a year, he's not paralyzed.  "He needs to retire, no need to risk his health!" - what, given his injury history already, could he possibly do playing GOLF that would debilitate him permanently?  And yes, I'm well aware of how golf can screw up a persons body given the amount of muscles used... but still, coming back and playing golf, at worst, could only likely result in an additional injury that *might* at *worst* actually end his playing days as a competitor.  It's not like returning to golf is going to put him in a wheelchair permanently from trying to smoke a drive.  At this point, I hope he recovers fully, and I do hope that if he can, he returns to playing golf.  If not, so be it.  But who am I to say or anyone else here "no need to risk your health Tiger, retire!"
    • If they all got legit handicaps and you can split it relatively even, you could do a Ryder Cup style event.
