PostSubject: How many Eagles achieved so far?   Mon Oct 24, 2011 11:17 am

How many Eagles have any of you achieved so far? In my record, I achieved 4 so far. And I bet it's going to be more and more difficult with age. The other factor would be to depend on luck more than ability. My records:

1) 1st Eagle 2001 - NSRCC Navy Course Hole 5 Par 5. Pitch in from 110m.
2) 2nd Eagle 2002 - OCC Vanda Course Hole ? (Can't remember but it's after the
Par 5 near Clubhouse) Par 4 - 1 on 1 putt.
3) 3rd Eagle 2004 - OCC Aranda Course Hole 9 Par 5. 3rd shot lob over coconut
tree and ran to see ball roll into hole. (Jump with joy)
4) 4th Eagle 2008 - Ponderosa Hole ? (Can't remember which hole) Short Par 4.

I remember I had 5 Eagles but just could not recall that elusive course.

Cheers!

Wow, impressive sir. That's 5 more eagles than me. Sad

Especially Eagle no. 2. 1 on par 4. How far was the distance?

I think at that time the Par 4 played to 276m or something like that. My drive landed on the green and I have about 60feet to putt. It was a night golf. I intend to bring it near the hole for birdie but the kind ball went in instead. Beer on me that night. Beer

That is the old layout for Vanda, now the hole 7 after the club house par 5 will not be possible to hit 1 on. Unless of course there is a hurricane behind you....

No. Shorter than that. I have a 60' (18m) putt remaining. Meaning 276m - 18m = 258m. Nothing to crow about. I am sure there are quite a few bros here who can drive longer than 258m.

Well, not every one can follow up a 258m drive with a 60 foot putt... Fantastic... cheers

I can tell you it's pure luck, especially when night golfing. Or should I say all my eagles are pure luck. Nearly hole-in-hole during the Senior Amateur on 20 Oct'11, Left with 8" putt for birdie at Vanda Hole 2 Par 3. cheers

I can't remember how many eagles I have had but should be around 4-5 bah. Used to chiong all the par 5 when I was younger but age is really catching up and can't hit that kind of distance any more. Nowadays, happy to get birdies liao which has become really rare.

Bro,

I got my first eagle when I was 46. I pick up golf late, in 1995 when I was 40. My last eagle was in 2008, when I was 53 and hope it won't be my last. So technically, you are still young if your declared age of 43 is correct.

Question for the strong men who can get actual eagles.

Did you hit it far from the start (as beginners)?

or

Did you start out as avg distance hitter and gained distance over time with improved technique, strength and/or better equipment?

non-HIO eagles are insignificant achievements, to me it's just like birdies

HIO, albatross and condor are real stuff to be proud of
