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

One eagle, maybe 20+ years ago. Never holed out a bunker shot. The courses I play are very sparsely bunkered, so not many opportunities to play these shots, so when I do, it's not pretty, and I am quite satisfied just to be out of the bunker.

I made an eagle first, which was about two months ago. In fact, now that I think about it, I’ve never holed a bunker shot. Ever. I’ve come close countless times, but it’s never dropped. Maybe because my bunker game is hit-or-miss right now. Oh well...

A bunker hole-out first, then a par 4 eagle that was years and years before ever having a par 5 eagle. To this date I have eight eagles (seven par 5 eagles since I moved 3 years ago, not sure what that says) and only three bunker hole-outs. The last bunker hole-out was cool though - very difficult 18th hole for a walk-off the round is over birdie - great feeling!

Bunker hole out, no question. It was luck and it wasn't even for par, as I recall. Many years before I got my first eagle (a chip-in on a short par 5).

2-0 for eagles for me at this point. Frankly, this season has been a disaster in the bunkers, so I'm less concerned with a hole out than getting the ball wholly out of the bunker.

I have absolutely no idea.  I presume bunker hole out, just cuz odds?  But honestly I only actually remember one bunker hole out, and it was really recent, but that's gotta be just because I didn't bother to remember, not because it hadn't happened.  I think??

The eagle...And it came late in life. Since then I've had the bunker hole-outs but not another eagle. Had a hole-in-one years ago and not another since. I wonder if chaos theory is at work here and if I'm due another. Best, -Marv

Does a hole-out from a fairway bunker count? That was my first eagle. I've only ever made two... So there's that (one from a fairway bunker, the other was a 5 foot putt)

What????????

I'm not doubting you at all, but in all seriousness how is your handicap under 4 and only ever made 2 eagles? 

I stink but I usually make 2 or 3 eagles per year. ... Although none this year. This year hasn't been my best year... not even close to my best, possibly one of my worst.

I’m a low event golfer, I make a shitload of pars a birdie or two, three or four bogeys.

Pinehurst gotta figure out which one, par 3 went long into the sand, SW out rolled in, only two eagles have been a year later(2019) different par 5s at Manele Bay Golf. Two days in row, I had an eagle. Great drives followed by solid second shots, day 1 a tap in, day 2 a 10 ft straight putt, was stunned. Mann I love life!

Eagle first for me. I have 2 eagles with my 2 Aces.

I had 3 bunker hole outs for birdies last month so I don’t feel they are that rare.

Hi Ace:

Hmmm...you're quite the "baller' aren't you.

I see your cap has lower too....so if we ever played golf together would I be embarrassed playing with you?....just askin for a friend.😁...for sure I'm askin for strokes...that's a given.

    • But most trades do not require a college degree. That goes back to the bifurcation between college prep and trade skill training.
    • Depending on course length...driver, 5, 7, pw and putter. I am just more comfortable hitting these clubs in a variety of ball flights and distances.
    • This x1000. To appear (I know that it is just an appearance) completely hopped up and out of it a couple of days before the incident is a huge reason why the questions are there, and IMO rightfully so. There is history there. He's recovering from surgery, so the access is almost certainly there. And we have video of what could be seen as him high as a kite shortly before, though not so shortly that any intoxication from the TV appearance would have worn off had it existed. Until I personally see toxicological reports dated and sign from that date, I will believe he was intoxicated. Some (most here) may call this unreasonable, but I would argue it is unreasonable for him to be going that speed and crash, then have no citation from the cops, even more unreasonable. I voted 1 as far as Tiger saying anything himself is concerned, but I think it is a terrible look, and close to a silent admission at this point given his history, the previous TV appearance, and the circumstances of the crash.
    • Nice rant.  Aren't those the same people who when they are on their deathbed from Covid are saying they wish they had gotten vaccinated?  Or that they would now be happy to take the science-designed monoclonal antibodies?
    • I haven’t posted much these days, just been busy with life, unfortunately I spend more time driving my kid around to soccer games these days than golfing but I like the idea of this thread. My incomplete list is full of old timers.    @iacas for honest, insightful, and intelligent posts about golf. Always. The energy to make sure we all understand what’s important is uncanny.    @Golfingdad for moral support and always a fresh attitude. Barney lives life right.    @kpaulhus for the positive gamblers mentality. And Newport Cup drives that could range from 300 yard bombs to 65 yard duck hooks. Like a box of chocolates.    @DaveP043 the best match play opponent anyone could dream of.   @mvmac for discovering the secret to golf. Forget Ben Hogan he needs his own Life magazine article to explain it to us.    @JetFan1983 for the Amanda videos.    so many others I should mention but the truth is there are so many great people on here. Always been the best place to talk golf on the internet.
