Mine was at the 14th at Broadlands golf course. It's a par 5 dogleg left with trees on the dogleg, where you can see the green over a lake around the dogleg. The trees only go partway down the sharp dogleg, meaning if you hit a tee shot on the right side of the fairway and hit it long enough, it's a simple shot on in two despite the 570 yard distance on the scorecard. I hit a good drive, maybe 280, but down the right side near the trees leaving myself with a small blind draw from 190 out to the pin. Hit an easy 6 and my partner near gave me a heart attack. Here's his dialouge, "That's going to be on, nice shot...Wait, that's a great shot, within 10 feet. IT"S IN THE MOTHER ****ING HOLE!!!!!!!Wait, wait, no, I was wrong, you're left with a few feet for eagle". It was probably the most interesting eagle I've ever made.

Hole in one. Just a week and a half ago. 181 yard par 3 at Teal Bend in Sacramento. Used a 6 iron and shot it 18" past the cup...watched that bad boy spin back all the way in. Best iron shot I have ever had. A complete fluke.

You, sir, have stolen too much luck from the rest of us. Please return it immediately so I can have a hole in one, instead of forcing me to watch as my closest hole in one attempt does a 180* lip out back at me.

162yd par3....8-iron ACE   Easily my best shot.......I also have 12 eagles on par4s and about 100 eagles in total.   The ace definitely takes center stage........

PS.....I even holed a shot from 228yds on a long par4 for eagle......it's still not my best shot because I only have 1 ace.   The 228yd hole-out is just the best of 12, but scoring a 1 is in an entirely different class.

Just a simple bird on a par 3 last month. My ball landed on the green, hopped once, hit the stick and settled for an 8 inch tap-in. One of my playing partners swore he saw it go in the hole and bounce out. It would have been my second ace if it had gone in. The satisfaction comes because I had just carded an 8 on the previous hole  playing with two guys I didn't know, and it's nice to show one has some game.

Another satisfying hole this summer was a par on a dogleg 4. I sliced the tee shot into a water hazard. Took the drop and put the third one on the green with a 190 yard 5 wood. Then a 20 footer dropped.  That's my only par with a penalty shot and also one of two times I've parred that hole.

Mine was the par 5 4th on Allister Mackenzie at Haggin Oaks. Normally get pars on it, but one day I hit a 325 yard drive and realized I had a shot at the green with my 5 iron. Had to go over water which is intimidating, but I knocked down within 5 feet for an eagle try and sunk the putt.

    • Some examples: “I’m going to go because it’s the British Open. But I certainly thought about not going. I just can’t believe with the numerous examples of successfully run safely held tournaments and majors here that they can’t figure out a better situation,” the player said. “If someone on your plane tests positive on way to the British and is sitting anywhere close to you, you’re out no questions asked, no matter if you’re vaccinated. It’s aggravating that they deem the tournament safe enough for 32,000 fans a day to attend, but won’t let a player’s wife, children travel and watch the tournament, nor will they even let players visit a restaurant without threat of disqualification.” and According to the note sent by the R&A to players, caddies and coaches, those on different player teams will not be allowed to stay together, which makes things difficult for many who travel in support of players. “The up-to-four persons [regulation] within private rental accommodation must be included within the players’ own support group … For example, multiple players or multiple caddies are not permitted to share private self accommodation,” the R&A email read. “We recognise this is difficult for many that used to share during the championship but the Government’s strict contact tracing requirements mean that this will not be possible in 2021. and The potential for being ousted from the tournament has players angry, especially in light of the eased restrictions for patrons. The R&A recently announced that up to 32,000 fans will be able to attend each day at Royal St George’s — that’s 80 percent of the typical 40,000 spectators allowed on the site. “They care more about the revenue of the fans buying beers than they do about the actual people participating in the tournament,” said the player who spoke with Golfweek. “Any fan can go to a grocery store or a restaurant and we can’t. Does that make sense? And I’m vaccinated. How does that make sense?” So, I voted "yes."
    • Players angry, consider skipping Open Championship after R&A hands down strict COVID regulations Some are considering a boycott of the prestigious event and others are simply miffed by the regulations. What do you think about the COVID Protocols at the 2021 Open Championship?   I'll get things started.  I voted "YES" they are going too far.  What is the point of telling players, coaches & caddies that have been living in close proximity for months and most have been vaccinated they cannot share accommodations?  And at the same time allowing @ 80% capacity for fans?  Do testing, etc. similar to the PGA Tour, it seems to have prevented any massive outbreaks for quite some time.  They also claim requirements are for Contact Tracing, if you know who is in the house, RV, etc. Contact Tracing should not be that hard.  By making them separate they may actually increase the number of people they come in contact with. 
    • I have downloaded the pdfs. It's time I get myself used to working yardage books. 
    • Scott kinda has two drills right now. The downswing one is: Get to A6 and stop, but make sure he's over his left ankle. Small pump. EXPLODE the left knee to kick the hip up and back/around while making everything rotate HARD from there. The left knee delivers the arms to the ball because the hips rotate, so the chest rotates, etc.
    • I have a few yardage books from over the years. I have SV but need to get the Mammoth one.
