I've added a Tournament Winner achievement.

2009 MPSGA-Tanglewood - Winner (Low Gross and Low Net - A Flight)

MPSGA tournaments have 110 or so participants divided into 4 flights by handicap (A-D).Handicaps range from 0-36. I have won six MPSGA events but that 2009 event was one of my best showings.  MPSGA stands for Michigan Publinx Senior Golf Assoc.

I've broken par as well as read (multiple times, it's a good book) LSW. My signed copy is well thumbed through, which leaves me almost wishing it had been printed hardcover.

Let's see. I broke 80 last year by barely shooting a 79. and let me tell you my bogey putt on 18 from 3 feet felt like 50 feet. I also found and bought a copy of LSW in a used book store, it's actually how I discovered this website :P. Regardless, it's preparing me for a long summer of golf practice and if I come close to shooting par I owe you guys the world!

Broke 90 (can't seem to get under 80 on my short/easy course near me either!).

Sheepishly lucked out with a hole-in-one last year, which I posted to my MySwing thread. Kind of a lost year as far as developing my golf skills (lack of time to invest), but I'll take the lucky achievement!

I did have 2 hole in ones last season and I broke 80 multiple times last year.

I would call that a good year!

I'll allow each person to determine the level of tournament that he or she believes qualifies. If you want the achievement, please give me some details so I can note it in the accomplishment: the name of the tournament, the dates (or year, or month), etc. If you've won multiple tournaments, pick one.

The win I'm most proud of is winning my flight in my club's Match Play tournament last year (2015).   I have a trophy even (I haven't unboxed it because I don't have anywhere to display it).  Please note that I said "my flight" not "A flight."  The event did allow handicaps in addition to flights,  but I believe I gave strokes in almost every match.  Should I name the club?  On one hand, doing so would cleanly identify me ... on the other hand, I think just about any TST regular can easily identify me if they choose to do so (and my full name is listed elsewhere on the page anyway...)

Broken 90. That is all.

It was a good year! I can only count one of the hole in ones though. The second one I had I was playing by myself. The crazy thing was it happened 2 weeks after the first one and it was on the same hole and to top it all off both were with the same club, a 7 iron. It was a good 2 weeks and the second one didnt cost me any money:)

I've had two hole-in-one's (holes-in-one?). 

I've broken 90 seven of my last 20 rounds including an 81 (tournament score), which is a big improvement over the last decade of really ugly golf (i.e. prior to joining this TST)!   I have not caught a "fever" for over 30 rounds! 

The 81 would have won our club's annual senior net championship, but I was exactly seven days shy of my 55th birthday.  So no go, only a flight winner.  LOL.   

I see a double eagle above.  I nominate that for a new award (The Golden Albatross?).  Far rarer than a hole-in-one. 

I nearly had one a couple of years ago.  My ball mark, the pin, then my ball two inches directly behind the hole in a perfect line.  I think it rattled the pin, looked into the hole and decided not to go home.  Fair result considering I had blocked my drive into another fairway creating a shorter approach through a small gap in the trees.:whistle:

How about a League Championship for the season? It's different than a tournament but it is for a whole season.

Up to you if you count that as a tournament victory.

There aren't very many in used bookstores. You have bought the only one I've heard of in such a fashion.

So are you moving all the old review threads over there or are reviews only counted starting after a certain date?

I'm missing the achievment 'broke 100'. I did so last September for the first time (yay!), and did post about it that time in the appropriate topic.

    • The movie "Grease" is still one of my favorite of all time greats.
    • Slow swing speed here, so lots of headcovers: Driver - 10.5* 5W - 18* 9W - 23* 6H (5i replacement) - 27* 7H (6i replacement) - 30* The gapping from 5W to 7H is about 10 yards per club, so it works well for me.
    • I have a food dehydrator. I bought extra racks for it, too. It takes a bit of time so to me it’s not worth doing in small batches.
    • My driver is a Titleist 913D3, and beyond that my two longest clubs are the matching 4-wood, 17 degree standard bumped down to 16.25 degrees.  And then a 4i.    I used to have the 3-wood in the bag that matches the woods, but the 4-wood has a smaller head which I prefer hitting off the ground.   When it's wet/rainy conditions I swap in a hybrid and take out a 64 degree wedge that I carry for firmer conditions.   That makes the hybrid the second longest after the 4-wood.
