A-- "WATER SKIP SHOTS" & "4" Eagles in One Round!
... OK -- MAYBE "2" -- BUT HOW ABOUT "17!"
These "once" in a life-time shots remind me of a very special day on the Bethpage Red Course years ago. My young son Jordan and I were teamed with a very nice chap and as a three-some we Teed Off to enjoy another pleasant day of golf! -- Truth be said, the guy was not a very good player. -- In fact, much less then very good. -- But that didn't bother us at all.
At any rate, some where on the Front 9 our new friend asked me if I ever had a "HOLE IN 1". ...At the time I was very proud to say I had "1!" -- He was very pleased to inform that he had "16!" -- Mind you, this middle aged guy with a "punch shot" swing really "struggled" in golf and couldn't hit the ball in the air very far at all. -- But no matter, some folks just enjoy "saying things."
--No harm done.
Now on the 17th -- Up Hill Par 3 of 165 Yards -- Jordie and I teed off hitting fairly good shots. With no hesitation at all our new friend then delivered a wicked "bladed shot" that kept bouncing up the hill, found the left side of the Green and starting rolling side ways to the Hole and -- you guess it -- "FELL Into The CUP!" -- Expressing no surprise what so ever, our friend called out: "NUMBER 17!" -- TRUE STORY!
Moral: ... "GOLF LUCK" ISN'T ONLY FOR PRO's! --DrDom
"How fortunate am I." -- I saw almost all of these shots courtesy of CBS Sports. -- "THANK YOU!"
I'm sure it's with a sense of pride that Tiger collects his "82" Win in JAPAN's "1st" PGA Tour Event, the 2019 ZOZO.
--- Truly a sensational comeback from the days when he couldn't even walk! -- Am quite sure you will enjoy this video.
Watching Tiger roll back time is even better today when you realize how much he's been through during his fabulous career.
Especially when you realize that this Post Injury "2nd Career" is only at the beginning with much more great golf to come!
Stay Healthy Tiger & "Keep It Going!"
By the way: -- Have you ever seen anyone putt better than Tiger Woods? -- I haven't.

On Sunday at the U.S. Kids Golf South American Championship,
an 11-year-old girl accomplished golf's equivalent of the cycle.
Brazil's Gabriela Hitoshi shot 7-under 65 in the final round at
Itanhanga Golf Club in Rio de Janeiro, a round that included a:
She actually completed the cycle during her Front-Nine, 6-under 30!
-- Birdie at the 320-yard, Par-5 third;
-- Ace at the 90-yard, Par-3 fifth;
-- Albatross at the 290-yard, Par-5 seventh; and
-- Eagle at the 190-yard, Par-4 eighth.
In total, the Par-72 layout played at 3,652 yards.
"FOR SURE" -- THIS YOUNGSTER HAD A DAY TO REMEMBER!
I started my boys early and still remember joyous days on the Course. MY FONDEST MEMORIES IN LIFE!
Listen to the "struggle" pro's have deciding who is the "best" golfer ever! -- I wonder how the modern greats would do when matched against the "Vintage Greats!" -- I think all modern players would have have a hard time against the likes of
Young Tom Morris, Vardon, Jones, Hagen, Sarazen, Hogan, Snead, Nelson and perhaps a few more.
These names will also remain among the best ever, as are Jack & Tiger.
I suppose it's really impossible to pick "the" best all time. -- Too many factors to compare across the years.
It could happen to "anyone" -- in fact, it happened to me one day at the old Van Cortland Park CC in the Bronx, NY!
My Friends & I were out early for our typical Saturday Round ("Boy, do I ever miss those days!")
when I popped the ball "IN & OUT" for a Hole In One! -- The ball simply "JUMPED" out of the Hole!
Study showed the Cup was not set down the proper distance, thus the ball hit the Top of the Cup and "Jumped Out!"
Naturally, I still count that shot as my "FIRST" Hole In One!
