Golf Accomplishments, or not accomplishments
- I've never made a hole in one

- I've never made a double eagle

- I've holed out from 150ish a couple of times

- I've saved par over 1000 times from over 25 feet. Not a typo. Uncanny. Its just in my bag. I'm that guy you lose money to on a bull shite putt.

- I've fought on a golf course. Ole Miss guy. Friend and good dude but I took him for $300 on an excellent shot. If you saw the shot you'd give me some backslaps.

- I've five putted, sober.

Anyone else?

Never have holed out from a bunker shot. Been close many times and making one is a goal of mine.

Never have hit my tee shot on the green on a par four. I haven’t played a lot of courses that have drivable par fours.

Zero aces.

Longest hole out was around 120 for an eagle.

One hole in one. It only took me about 20 years. Best part was that my son and wife were with me.

Shot my 1st under par competitive round at age of 15 (69).

Played some college golf, but I wasn't very good compared to the rest and I got burnt out and lost interest.

Missed a 6 inch put in a tournament one time.

I don't play much anymore, maybe 6-8 time per year, and I don't care if I shoot 70 or 90.

re: Golf Accomplishments, or not accomplishments
No hole in one.
I’ve been close about three times - about a foot.
I’ve chipped in or putted in off the green about 8 or 9 times.
Missed a few from about 135 or so.
I witnessed a double eagle or albatross at number 18 at the island from about 235.
Played with a foursome and the chick called herself “you pussy” when she hit a bad shot.

Zero aces but I’ve witnessed two. Been within 3 feet a handful of times.

Been in two fights on golf courses. Neither of which were initiated by me or my group.

My first ever par happened in the second round I ever played. I was 12 and pulled out a driver on #11 par 3 at Santa Maria. A 3 skipper through the water in front of the green to about 5 feet. Two putt par.

I’ve shot 80 a dozen or more times but have yet to post a round in the 70’s.

No

Yes, I holed out a topped 7 wood last year.

- I've saved par over 1000 times from over 25 feet. Not a typo. Uncanny. Its just in my bag. I'm that guy you lose money to on a bull shite putt.
I do this now and then.

- I've fought on a golf course. Ole Miss guy. Friend and good dude but I took him for $300 on an excellent shot. If you saw the shot you'd give me some backslaps.
As a kid, my brother and I thre down once.

- I've five putted, sober
I 4 putted an eagle attempt.

re: Golf Accomplishments, or not accomplishments
I’ve made one hole in one. #13 at the Island in Plaquemine.

Wildly I made a double eagle on #11 at University Club! It was unreal.

Holed out several times from 80-120 or so out.

Shot 30 on the front 9 at the Island in a clear in the zone like experience.

Shot 66 at the LSU golf course with two bogeys. I beat my buddy by 18 shots that day (be shot 84). Just one of those days where everything was clicking.

Holed out from a bunker to save par after an initial bunker shot was plugged. That one was funny!

I’m like you on hole outs from distance but from off the green with the Texas wedge. Usually happens at least once a round.

I missed a 2 foot putt for eagle on a par four after hitting a three wood on the green to that distance. Was a total flop. That was 10 years ago and my buddies still don’t let that one go.

Golf is a great game and one we should all play more of......

re: Golf Accomplishments, or not accomplishments
My dad has an interesting one and he’s the got the score cards to prove it. He only shot in the 70’s 4 times but each of the four times he had the freak occurrence of holing out from the fairway (eagle—1 time on 18), ace (2 times), and making a double eagle (1 time). He claims to have shot 80 or 81 around 50 times in his life but really had trouble breaking through without divine intervention.

I’ve done this a bunch of times, 3 putted for par 3-4 times doing this

4 putted for bogey once...

I hit the flag stick on the fly on a par 3 190ish. Ball definitely would’ve been over the back of the green, but it hit the stick and stopped dead 2ft from the cup

I hit a tee shot on a par 3, thought it rolled off the back of the green for an impossible chip, broke my 9 iron, got up there and actually had a pin high chip and made par. Then made 5 pars in a row for the only time ever

- I’ve had a 40ft birdie put go in a water hazard. It was a par 3, proceeded to make an 8 on the hole.

- had never shot under par and was 3 under going into 18..... triple bogey. Total CHOKE!

- I’ve never made a hole in one but my brother who is horrible at golf has made a hole in one and an Albatross...... and he reminds me of it every time we play.

re: Golf Accomplishments, or not accomplishments
Played professionally for nearly a decade. Have 4 holes in one and 2 albatrosses.

Best 9 holes I ever shot (29) I was drunk. Played a morning round, shot 68 and won about $500. Drank for 2 hours and was coaxed back out for an emergency 9. Won $400 more off the same guys; they were PISSED.

Stood on the 18th tee needing a par to shoot 59; snapped it in the water, made double, and "settled" for a career-low 61.

Lowlight- didn't even finish the 1st hole in a pro tournament qualifier. Hit 2 balls in a row OB off the first tee and immediately withdrew.

I’m bad at golf, but my one and only “accomplishment” so far was a couple of weeks ago: I played my first round without losing a ball.

I was about a foot from making a hole in one once. That's all really. I suck.
