I noticed that @Golfingdad has a hole in one but not an eagle.  Unless he got a hole in one on a par 4, he should have an eagle also.  Right?

Maybe there is some distinction I'm not aware of...

Read the descriptive text here: https://thesandtrap.com/awards/ .

That's not to say he hasn't eagled a hole, in which case he should claim that one, too.

Got the hole in one. Let's get a more recent eagle than one 29 years ago? :-) Do it this summer!

Had my first ever eagle on a 471 yard uphill par 5. Crushed a drive to within 160 with a huge uphill. Hit 5 hybrid to 5 feet from the pin and sunk the putt. I gave a couple tiger fist pumps after that one.

Hmmm... don't know why I never saw this.  I was directed here by a post @RandallT made in one of the threads.  

Anyway... 
 

Gotta work on some of the others!

Scrambles aren't really "golf" so let's wait for a real tournament win.

For the TST Outing does it have to be a new one or can it be for one I attended previously?

Do you have a copy of LSW? That's another one you could easily get.

Thanks!  

Not yet on LSW.  It's something I've been meaning to purchase, I just haven't done it yet.  

Do you have a direct link?  I'm sure it can only help me!

I'm pretty sure your April excursion to the frozen tundra of Virginia should count.

I thought it might, but wasn't totally sure. I've been part of the Erie TST Outings for the last 3 years also though. Technically you should have the TST Outing one as well if it counts for me.

@DaveP043 got the extra special organizer achievement for that outing. Well deserved too, as the hospitality was quite extraordinary! Calling @GolfLug to also claim your TST outing achievement. I see your Newport Cup badge, but not the TST outing.

CY

http://lowestscorewins.com You can buy there. By the way, I saw you were possibly meeting a fellow TST member for a round somewhere down there near you, and thought I'd mention the outing achievement.

If you organize an outing and 4 or more members attend, you get the one that looks like an organizer. See DaveP043 above.

If you attend an outing where 4 or more TST members attend (and some of you meet for first time, I believe, not just regular friends), then you get the outing attendee badge. It has 4 golfers on it, and should be in my tag below. Just thought I'd mention it, in case you have a meetup and it grows to 4.

    • There is no requirement for a marker to be a fellow competitor. They are simply a "person responsible for entering a player’s score on the player’s scorecard and for certifying that scorecard."
    • I’ll recount this round more specifically, then answer your question.  1) hit normal, first tee shot, duck hookish drive left of fw. Hit a low, below the trees, 95yd 52 wedge to inside 10ft. Missed the putt.  2) cut drive, still missed ever so slightly left of fw. Put approach to 3ft, made birdie.  3) 2iron to mid fairway, had 130 in and hit pw barely over the green (within 20ft of pin). Hit a putt from the rough as it was straight downhill, made par.  4) par 3, hit front edge of green after a high toe chunk of a tee shot. Couldn’t get up and down. 5) par 5, perfect drive, left with 200 or so in. Missed green to the right but pin high, chipped to a tap in.  6) par 3 missed green short right, chip hit the pin and stopped close.  7) par 5, good drive, had 5iron in, missed slightly right but carried the bunker. 2 putt birdie 8- Good drive, missed fairway, but it’s a short hole and ended short right of green. 65yd pitch to inside 10ft. made the putt.  9) pounded the drive, approach from 45yds ended up inches from the hole. Birdie 10) missed drive right into the trees, punched out, had 105yds in and put my 56 to 4ft and made par. Key par there.  11) par 5, drive missed right of fw but still fine, hit 4iron to inside 20ft, 2 putt birdie.  12) par 3, thought i hit it perfect, bit landed mid green and spun to front. Had a tough uphill putt from 40ft or so. Made par.  13) par 5, good drive but slightly left of fw, hit 2iron to pin high right of green. Chip to 5ft, made the slider for birdie.  14) 315yd par 4, drove green (must have had a lucky kick, I’ve been plugging in front approach all winter), ended within 15ft and made the putt for eagle. 15) cut 2iron down left side fw, tucked right pin so did my normal draw off it to middle of green. Had 25-30ft, made par.  16) par 3, 150yds, tucked right pin again, hit 15-20ft away, made par.  17) hit hooky 2iron, but ok in left rough, had 100yds in slightly downwind, hit my 60 8ft past, made birdie.  18) hit 2iron hard down right but hit trees and kicked, luckily, slightly left back into fairway, had 130yds in and had my 52 to 4ft, made birdie.  That is 7/14 fairways and 14/18 greens. Basically the driver was hit well, and for the most part, not in trouble and leaving short wedges in. From there I hit wedges really well, including many of the chip/pitch distances. When my game is around even par, there’s definitely no putts made and approaches aren’t as close. Mid to upper 60s means better approaches and some putts. Low 60s is good approaches with more putts made. Certainly making birdies on the 4 par 5s is important as well as making virtually no bogies.  I’ve said it before about my game but when my driver is doing good, I’m doing good. If it’s not, I’m not. My full/partial wedges are the best part of my game. Pitching/chipping is getting a ton better. Putting is a lot better but variable depending on conditions. The game just happens to be aligning more the last few months. 
    • Day 50 - Used MirrorVision to watch/film swings, focusing on my impact position.
    • 62 is cool as hell. Damn
    • Great playing! Curious when you say "good approaches" on like 1,2,17,18 that resulted in 3 birdies, what kinds of distances are you hitting for the approach shots and how far are you leaving for your birdie putts?  Maybe a better way to ask is during this great run of golf you've been playing obviously you've been doing a lot of things well, but is there a common theme among the really low rounds that you hadn't had prior to this stretch? Like has it been a case of stuffing everything to 5 feet, making a ton of long putts, not missing a fairway, etc.
