  1. Just like the 2020 topic, we're gonna do it again here in 2021! Like last year, I'd like to birdie every hole at Whispering Woods in 2021 (and maybe every numbered hole on other courses). I'd like you to join me on this quest. This year's spreadsheet is below: 2021 TST Birdie Challenge - Google Sheets Home Course Welcome to the 2021 TST Birdie Challenge. Rules? There are no rules except this one: fill in your best score relative to par on the holes as you achieve them. If you birdie a hole twelve times, it's not -12... Please click through, add you
  2. Here's the deal, folks: I'd like to play enough golf and birdie every hole at Whispering Woods in 2020. I'd like you to join me on this quest. So, I've set up a spreadsheet here: 2020 TST Birdie Challenge - Google Sheets Welcome to the 2020 TST Birdie Challenge. Rules? There are no rules. Just fill in your best score relative to par on the holes as you achieve them, and let's all have fun and cheer each other on in 2020! Please click through, add your name, home course, and location, and when you make a par or a birdie, add that score to the sheet, with
  3. I did not check the source of this story but it seems reasonable. No idea about "eagle" or "albatross". How Did the Golf Term Birdie Come About? "Birdie", meaning a score of one stroke under Par, comes from the early 20th century American slang term "bird", meaning anything excellent. The September 1911 edition of Maclean magazine described a golf shot as - " 'bird' straight down the course about two hundred and fifteen yards." The Country Club in Atlantic City lays claim to the first use of the word 'birdie' itself as mentioned on the USGA website. In 1962 the US greenkeepers
  4. What is your birdie conversion rate from GIR position? and your HI? This is an informal survey of how golfers with different skill level convert their GIRs to birdies. I have HI of about 15 and convert 8% of GIR putts into birdies.
  5. Time to get your brag on. What is the longest par 3 hole you have birdied (or aced if that was a long one)? I felt pretty good yesterday rolling in a birdie putt on the 237 yard 16th hole. Now the disclaimers - the hole plays a bit downhill and I had a breeze at my back. Took a decently struck driver for me. Plus the putt was at least 35 feet so it was a fair tee shot and a great putt.
  6. I was kind of pondering this question lately. If you get within 10 feet of the pin, that's pretty much a legitimate birdie putt while a 100 foot lag putt uphill over 2 tiers is "not" in my mind. I would answer is 30 feet and in even though I almost never make a 30 foot putt on the course. Just wondering what you consider a legitimate birdie chance?
  7. Today i was playing at the local golf course in my city and i shot an eagle on a par 4. Easily my best shot ever by far. I started golf about 2 to 3 months ago so im not really the greatest and i still have yet to get a birdie. But i have now gotten an eagle... an eagle before my first birdie i actually thought i over hit the shot out of play so i put down a new ball but then my playing partner said "hey you got a callaway right"? And i was like yes? Yes i do? And bam eagle and dont know if it will happen again for a long time (im 15 btw) so ya has this happened to anyone else lol and im gonna
