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...

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.

    • 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.
