What Did You Make First… An Eagle or Bunker Hole Out ?


Recommended Posts

As a beginner, I made a bunker hole out 2 and a half years ago at our first TST outing. I think it was for a double. . . :-P

About two years ago I holed out, from a bunker, for eagle.  Then I hit my drive into the lake next hole.  

Same time. I holed out a bunker shot for my first (and only) eagle.

Me reading the title of this thread...

Just curious to hear from those that have been lucky enough to do either ... what did you do first [eagle or bunker hole out] ??

Great question.  My first eagle came back in the 1960's as a teenager with a driver, 4 wood and putt on a par 5. Most of the courses that I played had few bunkers, so I know my first was an eagle. I have at least one eagle in each decade since, then for a total of 13.

After a lot of practice over the years out of the sand, I have been able to get up and down on numerous occasions, but I can only remember a handful of bunker hole outs.

If you play a shorter course Eagles are more likely. I've missed 5 Eagle attempts from inside 15 feet in the past 4 months. Bunker hole outs are more lucky, and I wouldn't call getting it to 2 feet anywhere close to hole out "capable".

bunker hole outs, not anything memorable but I know I've had several.  Eagles, 3. all hole outs from the fairway and I remember every one.  One on a par five and two on par fours.  One from about 160 yards.

Another bunker hole out yesterday (for par), still closest sniff to an eagle is 6 inches.

I don't think I've ever holed out from a bunker in a round. Then again, I rarely hole out any chips for some reason... I've had my fair amount of Eagles though.

Quite a few bunker holeouts before my 1st eagle

and a couple bunker holeouts between the 1st and 2nd eagle FWIW

A par 5 eagle came first. Next was a hole in one. Then a bunker hole out.

Bunker hole outs are at the bottom of my list on hole outs. I tend to stay out of green side bunkers.

    • After a decent round yesterday i finally reached goal number 1 this season: HCP-index: 9,9.  Now let's keep it there or lower. 
    • You really need to call out your cheating partner.  Never allow it to continue.  Otherwise you will either get bitter about it or refuse to play with him.
    • Or wager against them, but watch them closely and play strict rules.  After all, their handicaps are probably treating their concessions as sunk. Three players in my club's match play qualifier were DQ'd for taking gimmes during the qualifier.  Those are a no-no when it's medal play for a match play qualifier. 
    • Parred the first hole at an away course today to make my away course composite even par (3 birdies 3 bogeys)
    • Day 120.  Played 18 with some friends today.  Hit 6 GIR, shot an 88.  That 88 includes four sevens (holes 4, 5, 9, and 10), one of which included a tee shot O.B..  My short game was barely outside the 20 handicap range for strokes lost, which is encouraging because I had two stubs in there (which each cost more or less a full shot each) and my putting was inside the 20 handicap range, which I'm super happy about.  Strokes lost approach was 1.73, which is amazing.
