Had numerous eagles, last one was a chip in from just off the fringe on the drivable par 4 7th at Bass Creek in Footville WI.

Got it!

Thanks for the reminder, @iacas. I had forgotten that eagle was one of these achievements.

Congrats!

@TRUCKER I don't like to assume, so… broke 80?

2019 is my 4th season playing golf. My achievements so far:

Hole in one #1: Sept 2017

Hole in one #2: June 2018

The 2 hole in ones = 2 Eagles

Broke 90: 2017

Broke 80: once in 2018 with a 76 (14 pars hole 1-14, then got too excited and bogeyed the last 4 holes). Damn it...

@iacas put me down for an eagle. Have had a number of them over the years, but no hole-in-one yet. Did have have a hole-in-one on a mulligan when playing alone last years, so I don't count that.

I gave you the HIO and the Broke 80 award.

I only give people the lowest "broke" that they got (so broke 80 trumps broke 90), and because HIO and Eagle are two separate awards, I give those out separately, too.

Broke 100 on 4/6/19 - Shot 91 at Griffith Park Wilson Course from the Blues (6,967 / 73.0 / 125) $ was involved so playing partners were on top of scores and absolutely zero shenanigans.

Amazing what happens when you don't lose a ball for an entire round. 🙂

Round with NO 6s

Course: Wigwam, Litchfield AZ, Red Course, club tees, 6291 yards 69.3 117

Started out with 20 minutes on a range and 10 minutes on a practice green before playing 18.

I felt well warmed up with most of my clubs.  My driver and 4h were on fire. My 6i and 7i were very predictable and my wedges felt solid. I decided not to play my 7i/w or 3h today and left them to sleep in the car. Basically, good choices as I could not feel I missed out on not having them at hand.

While I got my second sub 90 of the year (86), it never felt like as that great of a round.

Good moments: I holed a chip in from 15', no triple bogies, only 28 putts , 6 Pars, 10 Bogies, 2 double bogies, no penalties, 12 GIR, 11 Fairways.  And, the wedges were solid. No slices or wild pull hooks.

Not so good moments: missed a number of putts on Par 3s to end up with 5s on the holes.  Was often short on the second shots to require a third or even a fourth to reach the greens.  I got to get working on getting the ball closer with my hybrids and pitching wedge.

While it felt somewhat average during the play, when I totaled up the round I was happy about the score; I was not really watching the score, as I played each hole as if it were a separate entity from what went before. Before the totals, I though perhaps mid 90s.

Out: 42, In: 44

Big Shock: NO 6s!!!!!!!!

Does an even par 72 count as “breaking par?” Or do we need to shoot a 71?

i just had the round of my life at EVEN with 2 birdies and 2 bogies on a legit course (71.7/138)

Unfortunately one of my bogies was a 6 or else I would have earned that “no sixes” award too

Shot 71 yesterday (71.4/127) 6385 yards, par 72. I'm sure as hell am not a "stupid monkey" yet.

So I'm claiming the "broke par" award.

4 birdies, 3 bogeys already have the no sixes but that's a different thread. I'm going to find me a 2 par-5 par-70 and get a no-fives award 🤣

I'm currently reading LSW, which I bought.  I'm not sure what I need to do to get the stupid monkey, but I'm trying...

    • With the year coming to a close, it's time for our yearly self-assessment thread. Here's how this will work...  Quote your post from the 2020 Golf Goals topic right here in this topic, then write something below your quoted post to let everyone know how you did! For deep dives into your goals, consider cross-posting (linking to your post here) in your Member Swing topic. P.S. To quote your post from another topic, you can do one of two things: Quote it, select the whole quote "box" (with the little + sign in the top left corner), copy it, and paste it into the reply box here. Click the "+ Multi" button on your post in that topic, reload this topic, and quote it directly into a reply here by clicking the "Quote 1 Post" button/overlay that should appear. The latter is the easier method, and the former won't work very well on tablets or smart phones.
    • Honestly after about 50 tournaments played it's the first time someone has pulled this.  I didn't even know I would need to deal with this sort of nonsense.  Everyone else I've played with wants to beat you at your best and still actively root for each other.
    • The very fact that you perceive these responses as "attacking you", does suggest a lot of sensitivity.  Personally, I can relate. I'm definitely too high-strung and this hurts me on the course when I'm playing with the sort of people that would exploit that. Playing with my friends or casuals isn't a problem. We are all rooting for each other. In competition, your opponent is most definitely not rooting for you and some will pull out all the stops to win. Competitive golf isn't for everyone. If you wish to pursue it, recognize this as something to work on. 
    • I did tell him to f*** off and worry about his own ball he just talked more shit after...Short of having fist fight with an old man that's about all I could do.  And yes I have called rules violations on folks before, but generally try to help fellow competitors as much as possible during competition. I've been playing in these money tournaments for about 3 years now and it has 120+members and I have never played in a foursome during a tournament where someone was blatantly pulling this.  I assumed there was some rule against it since I haven't had someone try that before. I asked the question and you guys answered, and I honestly didn't thank my manhood or ability to " handle it as a human" would come into question. I think the topic is now over, and ask that you please close the thread unless you folks aren't done attacking me yet.  
    • This reminds me of the episode on Bewitched where Darrin and his boss Larry take a prospective client golfing. The client is addressing his ball and Darrin asks if he inhales or exhales on his backswing and it totally messes the guy up to where he cannot function anymore. Hoses his game.
