I've had one hole-in-one (July 31, 2014) // and one eagle from a greenside chip-in on a par 5 in 1987.

Got them.

Got it.

Sorry I screwed up I meant broke 90 not 80.  Wishful thinking I guess.  I don't want to get an award I haven't earned.

I've had a hole in one on the 6th Hole Springwood Country Club NSW Australia 27th November 1999 in a tournament.

Had 4 eagles on par 5s and 2 on par 4s.

Broke 80 about 40 times .

Broke Par twice.

Got them all. Not the broke 80 one because the broke par one supersedes it.

Congrats!

Psst @iacas ;-)

I don't know how much that counts. I'll let @Dave325 answer that… he's in Cinci and they're out of season. I don't think courses are open.

Fair point.

It appears you may have missed @WUTiger's post.

Thanks! Some courses stay open as long as the weather permits, not too wet or frost on the greens. My course is more rural and is open all year as long as th conditions are good. Saturday was a busy day with 72 degrees, sunny. We set a record here that tied an all time record set back in 1891!  I hope we get a lot more of these.

Cool.Strange coincidence my first born son was born on Wednesday 27th November 2002. Three years to the day on my first hole in one.

Okay, I gave it to you.

- Broke 100

- Hole-in-One (and eagle, then, I guess)

- LSW (you got that one already)

Got them. Eagle is for non-hole-in-one eagles only.

    • Whether a dispersion is unusable might depend on what your next-best option is. If it's something like 2 strokes per round saved with each 20 yard gain in driving distance, then as long as your driver is 60 yards longer than your "fairway guaranteed" club, then it pays for the 3 OB mishits and is therefore not unusable. That's my amateur understanding anyway! The "famous" driving distance payoff:    
    • Does it have to be beating them?  A very fond memory of mine, from about two years into my time playing golf, was playing with a much better player and matching his score on three holes (two pars and a birdie).  I am 100% certain he beat my scores on the remaining holes.  Just the same, the (much much much) better player was super encouraging to me the whole day, but I particularly remember him complimenting those three.  
    • Day 46.  If today is Tuesday, this must be Belgium speed sticks day.  Protocol one in my back yard this evening.  Green at the end was 113, a new record.  Although it occurs to me, I'm supposed to continuously set new personal bests. 
    • So with it being the offseason still, I find myself reading and watching a lot of topics on the sport. Lately i came across Scott Fawcett and his strategy for teebox decisions. YouTube has a few videos of his but basically, for people who drive it over 270 pretty consistently, gameplanning should consider any trouble that is within a 70 yard dispersion. Now I already have gamegolf so i can see some dispersion patterns but I obviously dont tag the shots where I completely lose a ball so data is missing. I decided to go to a sim bay using a GCQuad and did a 15 shot driver test. In the end I averaged 268 off the tee in total distance. However off those 15 shots....3 were massive misses of 45, 52, and 60 yards offline. In real life at my home course and most trees courses I play those are lost balls with bad penalties applied. They would only be slightly salvageable at a course with adjacent fairways really. I would say when you look at my gamegolf rounds, the GCQuad result of 3/15 being lost/OB is accurate. So it made me start wondering as someone who has read LSW and Every Stroke Counts and understands advancing the ball far but safely.....how wide of dispersion is considered unusable for a driver? Until my swing improved would I be better off statistically going down to my 16* mini driver or just 21* hybrid? ( next time I do the simulator I was going to do dispersion tests for those)
    • While it may seem like a good idea, you can't just "factory reset" your swing. Better to just focus on a priority and make that better. Rather than trying to achieve a certain kind of swing, just improve on what you currently have.
