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

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.

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??

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)

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

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!

Definitely a bunker hole out. I’ve done that plenty of times just like chipping in. Not nearly as many eagles.

I started playing over 50 years ago. I can’t remember where I played last week. No way I could remember stuff like that from that long ago.

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.

    • Thanks guys, yeah that is definitely something to consider if I go down that route about the pairing and tags for sure @Missouri Swede.
    • Yes, you can manually tag the putts with the iPhone app, the Apple Watch app, or on their Link belt device. (I don’t have the link—I use either the watch or iPhone.) In fact, it’s pretty common for me to adjust the # of putts as I finish a hole, since I often have to add on the tap in putts—I don’t have the patience to let it register a tap in. You do have to pair the putter sensor with the app. If you don’t, the system won’t work at all (just the way they designed the system, I guess). Found this out the hard way: my putter sensor died, and I tried to re-pair it, unsuccessfully. No big deal, I thought. Except next time I went to play (replacement not yet arrived), it wouldn’t let me start the round: “need to pair your putter.”  Next time the putter sensor died, I knew better: ordered replacement, but didn’t un-pair the dead sensor.  Arccos thought I was chipping in every hole, no putts recorded.  I just added the putts manually as I went. So for you, pair the putter sensor at home (a onetime thing), put it away in your desk or wherever—don’t throw it away, because you’ll probably need it sometime in the future. Then add all putts manually, as I did when my sensor died. Here are what the iPhone app and Apple Watch app screens look like (don’t know what Android looks like—I get the impression it’s set up better for Apple): [Yes, I’m on my third sensor now.  First one lasted about 5 months IIRC. Second one only lasted 23 rounds.  Both replaced free under warranty — forget if it’s 1 or 2 years. But I’m a little concerned they both died so quickly.]
