Congratulations! My first eagle was a hole out on a par four as well. I've only made one other and it was a chip in from off the green on a par five. I've had lots of chances but apparently I'm the worst putter in the world.So yesterday we palyed a round of golf - I've never had an eagle, was close a couple of times on a Par 5 but the putt never happened.
Yesterday's weather was sunny but the wind was not kind for golf! on the 9th we are playing into a stong wind, tee shot down the middle but not very far.....I was 182m from the green playing into this wind, take out my hybrid and play a crisp shot toward the green, slight fade, see the ball bounce and think to myself burdie oppertunity as you can only see the flag and not to the hole.
as we walk up, expecting my ball to lie nice and close to the flag I see no ball.....one of the guys tell me I went over...thought it's possible because my hybrid is my 195m-200m club but playing into the wind that would not be the case!
start searching around the green with no luck. I tell the guys I'm just going to check the hole for the joke of it - low and behold, there was my ball!! Boom - FIRST Eagle and i didn't even see it happened!
This was on a Par 4 Stroke 2 - man I was pumped!! What a feeling!! Best part of it all, it was a temp green as well, you'll see in the back ground the "normal" green is being re-done!
