First time milestone!

Today I got a GUR and was putting for birdie! First time ever! Last year I was telling myself I would never get on the green in two on a par five. With a lot of practice over the winter I am already reaping the benefits early this year!

A GUR? Thats Ground Under Repair. Sure its not a GIR (Green in Regulation).

If so, very impressive to have a HCP of 13 without ever hitting GIR, you must be an up-and-down miracle

Lol! Green under regulation. I got on the green in two shots on a par 5.

Congrats. I have done that twice before. Missed the putt both times. Definitely one of the most satisfying feelings I have had that is golf related. The only eagle I had was when I hit my second on a par 5 into a bunker, then holed the bunker shot.

I've traditionally been a short knocker, never could get the driver out there.  On good days I would get it out there 210.  I'm into my 3rd year playing golf and have managed to get my cap down to 13-15 without much of a driving game.  This year I dedicated myself to getting some distance off of the tee, and forced myself to move from the white tees (5500-6000 yards) to the blue tees (6000-6600).  I had my first 2 Greens Under Regulation in the last month.  Missed both Eagles, but damn that's a sweet feeling having an easy 2 putt for birdie.

Congrats on yours, and many more to come!

yeah that's a feat, how long was the par 5?  i drove a 300y par 4 the other day and missed my eagle putt by 6".  but it was cool to choke up a little on the driver and put the ball exactly pin high...it made me feel like i knew what i was doing!

Thanks everybody! The hole was 480 from my tee. I know, it sounds like a fairly short par 5 but that was the distance. I hit it about 280 off the tee with a second shot of 200. I hit a hybrid on the green from the rough and got the ball to stop about 20 yards past the hole. And had an impossible putt for eagle. Ended up making a par because my putting is horrible! But by gosh I had a chance at eagle!
