Albatross or Double Eagle?

What's the correct term?  

23 members have voted

  1. 1. You've just holed out on your second shot on a par 5. You tell everyone that you made

    • an albatross.
    • a double eagle.

What are the chances of adding Toucan to the poll options @GolfSpy MPR?

Think of it like a Bart Simpson ballot write in - the revolution started at MyGolfSpy...

I'm totally okay with starting my campaign 11 votes in the hole.

I’ve had (4), but still waiting on an ace... smh

If we're sticking to winged creatures - how about *Toucan? (canned it for a two)

*specific to Par 5s

I've had three without a hole in one. I'm sick to death of people telling me I'm a liar, because of what some website lists as the odds. I'm quite pleased to hear of someone unluckier than me! I sincerely hope you get your ace this year!

Albatross 100%! Sounds much cooler.
its also kind of a special feat much like hole-in-one which we could all just call an “eagle on a par 3” but that’s not nearly as impactful. They each deserve a name that has some instant recognition because you put the ball in the hole from either a tee box or likely a par 3 distance or greater from the hole.

the real question is what should you call your hole-in-one albatross on a short par 4?  Should this get it’s own name?

also, when my old college roommate and I play and he gets an 8 on a hole instead of saying “8” or “quad” or “triple” or something like that he just starts singing Frozen’s “Do you want to build a snowman?”

Now that I’ve got that stuck in the head of every parent with young children who read this and ruined their morning I’m going to go fill my coffee cup since I was informed that it is now indeed daytime from a mischievous young toddler by my bed side.
