I've got the golf balls from all the eagles I made. I don't have them labelled or anything, they're just sitting in a bag. I have the order memorized. (I also haven't made a whole ton of eagles.) The most recent time I made an eagle I got a video of me going to pick the ball up out of the hole. Didn't capture the actual moment, though.

Me neither.  I wonder if anybody out there has though??  As it turns out, in case you were wondering, and I think you were ;) ... it would take 19,753 eagles to make "a whole ton."

Counting my one hole-in-one, I am currently sitting at roughly 13 ounces of eagles in my career.  So, I gotta ways to go too. :-P

Some eagles weight more than others, figuratively speaking of course. . . :-D

For along time I kept the ball with which I got my first eagle and the ball I shot a 76 with on a par 74 course (I was a high 80s to low 90s shooter at the time and had that one perfect day where every part of my game was at its peak).

But over the years I have lost track of them.

Back in 2008 I went to the US Open practice rounds at Torrey Pines.  At the souvenir tent I bought a bunch of golf balls with the 2008 US Open.Torrey Pines logo.  Then for several years, whenever a 4-some let me play through I made it a practice of giving them one f the souvenir balls and telling them to use it as a closest to the pin prize on their next par 3.

I do. I mean the ball may have not done anything but it is always cool to have a history of things. I have my first ball I played an entire round with, first eagle, first competitive eagle, first hole out, first bogey free round all the other hole outs over 80 yards.. still waiting on my hole in one though.

I would've loved to have kept the golf balls from my memorable holes.  Unfortunately, in my efforts to extend that success by continuing to play those particular balls, they met with an untimely demise =(.

I keep, and mark, Eagles and Hole-in-Ones. Or if I play a very memorable golf course, the ball I finished with. I have 4 holes from this year down on the mirror in my bar. One was driving a par 4 in one during a club match (was 40 feet away in 1 on a huge green, about 310 to the front of the green). The second was a hole-in-one and the final 2 were really neat. I shot my career best, 4 over par. I was using balls with my twin girls names printed on them from Titleist. One name on each ball. I used one ball with one girl's name the entire front nine and the the other girl for the whole back nine. Didn't lose any!

    • That’s pretty square. I mean, it is on the closed side of square but…
    • Shot 92 yesterday on a course I get 15 shots on, so net +5. Not hopeless, but I have a lot to work on.  Fairways 4/14, greens 5/18 and 33 putts, 3 doubles and 2 tripples tells a lot.  This was my best hole (even with the 3-putt) (490y par 5):  305 yard drive to mid fairway 174 yard 8i to 15 feet (above the hole) The downhill putt was too long and it ended with a 3-putt par. Very happy with the 2 shots to the green!    My homecourse opens this season, so I will squeeze in a couple of rounds then.      
    • That's hilarious. I had a set of clubs for a short time without the line drawn under the 6 and the 9. Drove me crazy.  Nowadays it's impossible for me to make that mistake, my 9 iron is a different style of club AND a different brand. I have a 9 iron players blade and a Super Game improvement 6 iron. 9 iron is dynacraft, 6 iron is Tour Edge. I dare say nobody could confuse them. 
    • That’s the feel I use too. It’s feeling the head drop behind with the start of the swing going more out than down. It flattens the shafts so by A5 it’s on plane.
    • Why not square? Hooks suck, too. Your face is shut in both swings.
