2 Eagles Anyone?


MEfree

Recommended Posts

Who has made 2 eagles in a round?

After lipping out a 15 footer for what would have been my first eagle this year last week, I almost made 2 in 3 holes yesterday-

1.  3 metal, 4 iron + 6 foot putt into the hole for a 3 on a "par 5" that normally plays 553 yards uphill from the golds which makes it hard for me to reach but which I played from the 459 whites with a high HC friend.

2.  3 metal, 8 iron + 45 foot putt that hit the stick and dropped into the hole for a 5 (counting the two penalty shots) when the same friend who was slightly off the green but closer than me did not remove the stick.  He didn't realize that it is a penalty for hitting the stick when you are on the green.  This hole is slightly uphill and I have reached this green from the 508 golds with a 6 iron before, but we were playing from the 450 whites, so really nothing more than a longish par 4.

There are 3 holes I can regularly reach in under regulation from the golds, so hopefully I will get a legit eagle soon.

Rules question- Had my friend moved over and pulled the flag AFTER I hit my putt but before it arrived at the hole, would I have incurred any penalty?

I've eagled the same hole in back-to-back rounds, but never 2 eagles in the same round.  Heck, I'm pretty stoked to get 2 eagles in the same year.

The course where I used to be a member had par 5s back to back and the next hole was a drivable par 4. I've made back to back eagles on the par 5s a few times and made an eagle on the second par 5 and the par 4 back to back once.

My goal was always to make back to back to back eagles on those 3 holes but it never happened in the many hundreds of rounds I played there.

My last back to back eagles were last year, where I play now, but it took luckily holing an 80 yard wedge shot on a par 4 and luckily making a 40 foot putt for eagle on a par 5.

I came so very close to getting my first ever two Eagles in a round in WED COMP this week ... 

4th hole PAR5 515 yards (stroke hole 1) ... after I drilled a lower strong drive to the inside corner of the Dogleg left some 240 yards out from one of the toughest elevated sloping downwards greens. I had thought of playing safe 4i get it within 20yds .. but I no thought I'd have a crack ... with my 18 hybrids.. hit it nearly perfectly straight (uncommon with this club)

landed front of green rolled to the back green parallel to the pin still tricky side slope 12 ft to the hole ..aim high  dropped low side of the hole YESSSSSSSS!!! my first ever eagle on the 4th !!(tough hole) ..

then continued the round till I came to the 11th PAR5 455yards (hole I've eagled several times before)... again strong drive 150-160yards out ...8i to land front of green rolled just past hole some 8ft past ....downhill putt very fast part of the green .. so soft tap ball ran true to move towards left of the hole in half the ball went around the hole and back towards me to stop a fraction out of the hole !!!! what!! never had that before. hit the ball fraction harder than needed !!!! took the birdie moved on gutted ... so close a putt that I should have got

I did it once with a holed out wedge on #8 and a holed out 6-iron on #14 at Lake Forest GC. Since I average an eagle once every 5 years or so, this was most likely my first & last  multiple eagle round.

I am not sure why you get a 2 stroke penalty.  Unless it is a MLR in your club, the rules have been changed to allow you to putt with the flag in.  Admittedly the rule was made to speed up play, but it means you should consider it an eagle.

That rule change is from 2019. The post you are responding to is from 2013.

No no, lets posthumously award the dude an eagle. It was the friend's fault for not pulling the flag. I remember 2013 was tough year for a lot of people and we need to go easy on them.

I’m not sure how many times I’ve had 2 eagles in a round. The most memorable one was a hole in one followed by an eagle on the next hole, a par 5. That was 2 years ago.

Some of these people must have moved over to Twitter and became "Twitter golfers" with their back-to-back eagle achievements. I feel that I can score in golf, but I don't get an eagle every summer. Had one this past year and the year before last. I play courses in the low 6,000-yard length, which fits my 5-iron carry.

This past year my eagle was on a 474-yard par 5 that I reached with driver and 3W then made a 35 ft putt. I shot an even 72 that day, which was really, really good for me and came out to a 2.4 differential on a 6,232-yard course. The previous one that I recollect was 3 seasons ago was on a 527-yard par 5 hole. Driver off the tee and probably a 3W, but I holed out with a 58* from 60 yards.

I think I have had a maybe 3 or 4 others that I recall. A couple of par 4's from about 100 yards or so out. 

Maybe I am a poor golfer, but I enjoy getting pars and the occasional birdie as well as keeping out of trouble to avoid the double bogey. Eagles are super, super rare for me. Maybe I should re-evaluate my approach to the game?

I've had more Eagles in the last several months than 2's !! .. being able to smash a Tee-ball a good way down the fairway on our shorter 455yd PAR 5 makes it more of a tough PAR4..

Only 5 eagles in my life, and only 2 BIRDIES in a round twice.  I only birdie a hole every 2-3 rounds…ie, I miss a lot of birdie putts :-)

Matt Fryer also documented a round where he made 2 eagles in a YouTube video

    • I’ll recount this round more specifically, then answer your question.  1) hit normal, first tee shot, duck hookish drive left of fw. Hit a low, below the trees, 95yd 52 wedge to inside 10ft. Missed the putt.  2) cut drive, still missed ever so slightly left of fw. Put approach to 3ft, made birdie.  3) 2iron to mid fairway, had 130 in and hit pw barely over the green (within 20ft of pin). Hit a putt from the rough as it was straight downhill, made par.  4) par 3, hit front edge of green after a high toe chunk of a tee shot. Couldn’t get up and down. 5) par 5, perfect drive, left with 200 or so in. Missed green to the right but pin high, chipped to a tap in.  6) par 3 missed green short right, chip hit the pin and stopped close.  7) par 5, good drive, had 5iron in, missed slightly right but carried the bunker. 2 putt birdie 8- Good drive, missed fairway, but it’s a short hole and ended short right of green. 65yd pitch to inside 10ft. made the putt.  9) pounded the drive, approach from 45yds ended up inches from the hole. Birdie 10) missed drive right into the trees, punched out, had 105yds in and put my 56 to 4ft and made par. Key par there.  11) par 5, drive missed right of fw but still fine, hit 4iron to inside 20ft, 2 putt birdie.  12) par 3, thought i hit it perfect, bit landed mid green and spun to front. Had a tough uphill putt from 40ft or so. Made par.  13) par 5, good drive but slightly left of fw, hit 2iron to pin high right of green. Chip to 5ft, made the slider for birdie.  14) 315yd par 4, drove green (must have had a lucky kick, I’ve been plugging in front approach all winter), ended within 15ft and made the putt for eagle. 15) cut 2iron down left side fw, tucked right pin so did my normal draw off it to middle of green. Had 25-30ft, made par.  16) par 3, 150yds, tucked right pin again, hit 15-20ft away, made par.  17) hit hooky 2iron, but ok in left rough, had 100yds in slightly downwind, hit my 60 8ft past, made birdie.  18) hit 2iron hard down right but hit trees and kicked, luckily, slightly left back into fairway, had 130yds in and had my 52 to 4ft, made birdie.  That is 7/14 fairways and 14/18 greens. Basically the driver was hit well, and for the most part, not in trouble and leaving short wedges in. From there I hit wedges really well, including many of the chip/pitch distances. When my game is around even par, there’s definitely no putts made and approaches aren’t as close. Mid to upper 60s means better approaches and some putts. Low 60s is good approaches with more putts made. Certainly making birdies on the 4 par 5s is important as well as making virtually no bogies.  I’ve said it before about my game but when my driver is doing good, I’m doing good. If it’s not, I’m not. My full/partial wedges are the best part of my game. Pitching/chipping is getting a ton better. Putting is a lot better but variable depending on conditions. The game just happens to be aligning more the last few months. 
    • Day 50 - Used MirrorVision to watch/film swings, focusing on my impact position.
    • 62 is cool as hell. Damn
    • Great playing! Curious when you say "good approaches" on like 1,2,17,18 that resulted in 3 birdies, what kinds of distances are you hitting for the approach shots and how far are you leaving for your birdie putts?  Maybe a better way to ask is during this great run of golf you've been playing obviously you've been doing a lot of things well, but is there a common theme among the really low rounds that you hadn't had prior to this stretch? Like has it been a case of stuffing everything to 5 feet, making a ton of long putts, not missing a fairway, etc.
    • Still getting used to the Cobra clubs/new shafts. The good ones are phenomenal, but have had a few off the planet left pull hooks with both hybrid and 3 wood, which I absolutely do not want to see, I want to see a fairly neutral flight with it falling right and the big miss be to the right. Tweaked a couple things towards the end of my session like ball position and alignment and that seemed to help some so it's possible that I'm just naturally wanting to line these up differently for some reason. Will keep working on those and making sure I dial them in over the next few weeks before Vegas. Got my 54/58 wedges re-gripped and loft/lies checked. The club guy said they had both gotten a bit flatter over time so got those bent back to standard. Immediately noticed a difference with my 54 start line/accuracy. Couple swings here with foam balls. Still working on setup pieces mostly but am fairly pleased with my swing overall at the moment.
