    i'm taking mine as fully legit:D, seeing it was way out, into the wind and the temp green was 20m closer than usual :p - agreed on your scenario though, still counts as a three on the score card though!

    converted it quickly to yards, I dunked it from 199 yards (google converter used) :eek: never thought it was that far out.

    P.S. was my first - definitely going to try that on every par 4!!:ninja:

    A 3 on a par 5 is an eagle any way you shake it. ;)

    agreed - Temp greens or not!

    Temp greens putt way more difficult than the usual green!! don't try and read a temp green, just aim the ball at the hole and hit it!

    Our local club was closed for a year for green renovation and they put in temps on the fairways just in front of each green complex. They were impossible to putt on so they cut 17" cups on them. There were no legit scores on that course for 1 year, but I had a few "eagles". Couldn't count those in good conscience, but a 4" cup on a temp green? BOOM! That's tough!

    yeah, bigger cups help - but this course with the temp greens had the regular cups - think it made it more special.
