First Eagle
« on: September 25, 2017, 01:06:23 pm »

I made my first eagle this past Saturday. Hole 1 at Shifferdecker Golf Course in Joplin, MO. It's a 497 yard, dogleg left, par 5. My drive must've taken a great kick off the cart path, because I was in the middle of the fairway and had 171 yards to the pin. Hit my 2nd shot about 20' from the hole. Made the putt and was sitting at -2.

Any of ya'll remember your first eagle?

i remember my first back to back eagles.  does that count??  :)

it was a standard par 5 eagle... on in two, made the putt... then followed with holing a 6 iron approach on the par 4 next hole.  and it all seems like a million years ago.

Congrats. For those who have not had a hole in one and don't have the length to have a legit chance at a double eagle then making an eagle is the next big thrill. It is virtually the same as a hole in one if you score an eagle from a fairway shot. I have had several of those but just never have had the luck to make an Ace. Closest I have come to an Ace so far is on #12 at Mt Springs. Dumped first tee shot in the water, dropped a second ball on the teebox in disgust and hit it.................yeah......took one bounce on the green and rolled right into the hole. Club Pro said afterwards................"nice par".  >:(

As far as my first eagle it was at Rebsamen back in the late 80's before they renovated it. Hole #14, par 4. Hit lousy drive, skulled a 3W second shot that bounced and rolled all the way to the green and then rolled right into the hole for an eagle 2

So.....after starting -2 after the first hole what did you end up shooting?

You had to ask, didn't you?? I shot a 82 (+11).

I didn't want to deal with the pressure of being under par, so I went ahead and made a double on 2. Pretty typical round for me after that.

 I don't remember my first eagle.  I do remember my first double eagle, though.

Par 5 #9 at the Lions Club in El Dorado.  Holed out my second shot.

I don't have an ace.  Double eagle's all I've got to cling to.

I chipped in for eagle two days in a row in the same hole last year.
