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


Recommended Posts

I've been playing 4 years, I have yet to hole out from a bunker (I'm actually pretty decent out of the sand).    I have 2 lucky eagles so far (135 & 40 yds ... I've missed a few long eagle putts - can't seem to drain one of those).

Just curious to hear from those that have been lucky enough to do either ... what did you do first ??

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...

Eagle. I have 4 of them and I've never holed out from a bunker (I've honestly never been closer than 2 ft from the trap). I've chipped in a number of times but all from the green stuff.

Mine was an eagle. It was in Mrytle Beach and I hit a driver, 5-wood to a long two tiered green. I was still very young and a wonky swing but 2 shots connected. I had probably 50 feet for eagle and it just was a lucky putt that went in from far downtown. I have had many Eagles since, but would have to say 1-2 bunker hole outs. I know I've had one, I can't remember if that was the only one. On my home course, where I've been a member for 5 years, I've not holed out from a bunker. I've had a single eagle from the standard men's tees, yet 3 from the back tees or the white tees where sometimes they set the tournaments if my handicap drifts above 12.4.

I've got quite a few eagles but no bunker hole outs.  I've come close a few times but I'm just too inconsistent on the speed the ball comes out of the sand.

Holed a bunker shot like 2 months ago during a tournament, was in a bunker in front of the green and pin was in a spot where if you got the ball going down the hill then it funneled to the hole and I hit a decent shot that hit the hill and rolled all the way down into the hole. Yesterday on a short (490 yard) par 5 where you can carry your driver 260 and have a shot at the green or lay up and I hit a great drive and had a nice 200 ish  yard shot to the green and I hit hybrid up to about 12 feet from the pin and the putt lipped out. Still eagle less but my home course has 2 reachable par 5's so I'm hoping it comes soon.

Only one Eagle ... not sure I have holed out from a bunker ... even though I have certainly given myself the oppurtunity a LOT more times than I have every an eagle attempt ...

I holed out from a bunker from 50 yards out on a par 5 to save bogey haha. Thank god too because I was on tilt after the previous 4 shots.

I've been playing golf for a long time and made a bunch of both over the years.....................but not sure which came first!!

With that said.......I don't believe they came at the same time..........(holed bunker shot for eagle) I don't remember my first of either!!    I do remember some early ones, but don't know which came first.

....Neither

Been I've had many amazing shots and been close to a hole in one, many close eagles, great bunker shots but they've never gone in. I drove the green once over trees on a dog leg par 4 and from the look of where the ball stopped I had a good shot at an albatross but then I 2 putted for a birdie...

Bunker hole out, and it wasn't pretty. Par save that was rolling fast, hit the pin, and fell in. If not for the pin that ball would have ended up way way off the green on the other side. That didn't diminish my excitement though :-)

    • Day 34 (30 Jul 21) - Played 18 today.  Worked on clubbing up on the approaches with a 3/4 swing.  It has helped with getting the ball onto / near the green.  Had some great shots into the greens and even when not on the green, being confident to bump and run with an 8i or pitch with the 54wedge.    
    • Back to the "regular" course today - rough greens and all.  Shot 94 (45 /49).   Played the back nine first with the first three holes (all par 4's) being double bogies.   I knew this was going to be an interesting day for sure.  Good thing - no triples today.  Too many doubles though with a total of six and only one par.  These greens are tough to play as they are either real sparse on good grass or the grass is like putting on cut pile (you have to really stroke through the ball to get the roll).  It calls for one to pin hunt to keep the putter distances as short as possible.  
    • Agreed. This is hard to watch and really boring. Commercials every 2 minutes (thanks, DVR and ff!) Perhaps the last day will be worth watching, with the gold on the line. I would not be surprised if some guy you never heard of takes a medal.  
    • I think it’s even worse than what you describe.   I live in an area where people are cheering that there will be no mask mandates and they like to rub it in peoples faces.   They are literally trying to own people who are taking it seriously.   I mean, people are just disgusting.  I can’t even muster anything in me to feel remotely sorry for people like that, nor have anything to do with them.   I’m sure there were lots of people in generations past who took the easy way out and did the wrong things in prior pandemics and war times, but that’s not terribly easy to find in history books.  Books will be written about how people not only killed themselves, but in their twisted belief that they are “protecting their freedoms” they are stripping them away from others.      I have 2 kids under the age of twelve.   With Delta allowed to become dominant because “people want to live their best life” (at others expense), they now are scared to go back to school (and the idiot system won’t do remote learning this year), won’t be able to travel and see their grandparents* , and can do less than 3 months ago.   Nice job folks.   * their grandparents are total a-holes though, so I won’t shed a tear.
    • Here I am, yesterday, doing the day 11 drill.  This represents my status after about ten minutes or so of doing the drill.  I really like it, and I can see how it will help me get better, and I plan to do this one more regularly.  However, I'm not sure I'm doing it right (similar with the snapping sticks drill, where I was stopping wrong).  There's even a really bad putt in this video that I was tempted to edit out, but decided to leave in (since my bad shots are instructive to how I'm doing it wrong, I think). As for other drills, I'm not sure how many I should be posting videos.  Part of me feels like I'm semi-spamming this thread (and I really should have done these 15-16 months ago). And in looking at my last few videos, including two I sent to Evolvr a week ago, it looks like my tripod gets tilted, I need to figure out what I'm doing wrong there.
