Yup, 1st hole, drive down the middle about 240y, 115 to the pin, dropped in.



77 overall, which is my second best ever.

    You should have walked in after that. Then you could say you were -2 before you had to cut it short.

    Congrats on the eagle! What a way to make your first one by making it on a par 4 from 115 out! I would wager that most first eagles are on par 5's. I know mine was.

    Congratulations! Heck of a way to make your first eagle...maybe you could change it a hole in one on a 150 yard par 3 lol.



    I’ve had two eagles both on par 5s...have yet to hole out on an approach shot. Still waiting on that hole in one...

    I think my first was an ace, 2nd, holed out from 100 yrds on a par 4, the rest par 5's.

    Nice! I’m even more impressed that you were able to keep the round going with the 77. I would have shot 38 on the front and 51 on the back after that opening eagle.

    Kind of, back nine poorer than usual. 36 out (1 over), 41 back (8 over).

    Nice! I've made a lot of eagles over the years, but not too many on a par 4. Those are the ones you'll remember. Oh, and any on par 3s of course. image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

    Good for you.



    Played with a few guys the other day. On a par 5 the one guy had 2 career shots and a putt for a 3. He was excited about the eagle. Didn't have the heart to tell him that he played from the tee box which changed the hole to a par 4 for him.



    I'm still pitching a shutout on the eagle front this year.

    The first 3 eagles I made were on par 4's (all 1 putt eagles).



    Very odd given I generally hit the ball far enough to give myself the option to go for it on most par 5's and some are even mid irons into them.
