    I'm new to the board. Just wondered what the odds are on making 2 different eagles on 2 par 4's on the same 9 holes. I did this yesterday on the last 9 holes of our club tournament. (also had 2 triple bogies back to back on the front 9 , sadly) . I know the odds of a hole in one are about 12,000 to 1 but I can't seem to find the odds for an eagle on a par 4, (much less 2 on the same 9 holes) but I am sure they would be less since there are more par 4's on a golf course than par 3's.

    I once played in a tournament with three other guys. On a par three, we walked off with a combined total of 7 shots. A hole in one and three birdies. I was the last guy to putt from about 10 feet. I walked that thing in like a Boss! I'll bet that one is hard to beat!!

    But two eagles in 9 holes on par 4s is pretty sweet too. What length were holes? Putts or slam dunk wedges?

    I am a senior still playing white tees. Last Friday I eagled a par 4 from 165 yards out shooting 32 on back for a cool 71 my age.Now today against the wind I had 180 to the same hole, guess what it went in! So in less than a week I have had two eagles on the same hole!

    I'm getting a match organised between Limp, Gary and PapaD. There's a price war going on between Sky Sport, CBS and ESPN to get the TV rights. On current form, my money is on Gary! I need PapaD's knee to heal up and Limp to get hypnotised to even out the odds. It will be epic!

    The Geezer Open!! I'm thinking this could be the first Very Senior Tour major.
