What is your biggest golf achievement?


Recommended Posts

I was thinking about what I've have accomplished on the course since I started playing golf. 

I was the league champion from my work in 2018.

Tough question.

I won my golf league a few times, but I think last year breaking par for the first time was my biggest achievement. This year I blew that away with doing it a few times already. I think once you have that initial breakthrough of any accomplishment the anxiety and stress just becomes negligible and you are more relaxed to just play the game.

I do like your trophy. Mine are the same old boring types.

Being the first trophy I won in 20 years, since high school, I am pretty happy, I need to get me a few more.

I never won anything as a junior except for the staff tournament at the club where I worked.  And all the good players had gone off to college, so not that much of an accomplishment.

In my mid 30s, I made my club's team for the city interclub invitational, which we won.  That was pretty cool.

Later that same year, my dad and I won his member-guest.  Definitely my biggest win up to that point.  We've also finished second and made the playoff a few other times, but haven't won it again.  

Then a few years ago, my older daughter and I won the area Father-Child tournament.  More important than that win with my dad?  I think so.

Next up is to win the Father-Child with my younger daughter.  This year, we beat last year's score by three shots.  She keeps getting better... I just hope I don't get any worse 🙂

Good luck on the Father- Child tournament, winning with your child is a complete different feeling.

I am hoping that now that he is a pre teen, my son will want to take the game more serious and invest some time in it, so we can enter father child tournaments our self's.

I want my son to get serious, but I don't want to push him, he just outgrown his "kids" set, and it is getting some time with my full set of Hogan's. 

Fingers crossed

In 4th grade, I hit my one and only hole in one. It was #7 I think at Kukuiolono Golf Course on Kauai. From the normal tee, it's a straight forward par 3 over a ditch, maybe 140 yards, but from the kid's tee, it's a blind dogleg right. Super strong wind and some rain from the left that is always there because it's the mountains in Hawaii. My dad told me to just hit it as hard as I could at this tree in the middle of the hillside so I did. It went perfectly at the tree and started getting pushed toward the hole by the wind. When we were driving up, no one could find my bright orange ball, so my dad jokingly said to check the hole. I was so excited when I ran up and found it in there. I don't want to say that was my peak, but that was totally my peak.

2 hole outs for eagle from about 70 yards, both were par 5s.

Shooting -1 under 71 with 5 birdies.

3 birdies in a row.

Most broken clubs during high school tryouts.

May not be anything to brag about, but a few years back I played in a tournament. I used to get real nervous golfing in front of people that I don’t know.

For the first four holes I was actually playing well, then I 4 putted on a very hard hole location and I felt my confidence shatter. I had a disastrous rest of the round.

My biggest golf achievement in my opinion was that I came back for day two.

I didn’t finish last, because there were people that DNF. I use this story to teach my kids. No matter how tough it gets, to never give up and never quit.

My old golf league had 2 divisions. 1 was Hdcp of 17 or better and the was 18 and above. I won both of them. And when I won the 17 and under division during our league championship we always would throw $20 into a pot to cover kp's, long drive, low net, and low putts. When I won I won the division and about $240 cash, the only one I didn't win was kp.... miss that league.. lol..

I have three holes in one, won the senior club championship twice and got down to a 5 hdc with all scores on the hdc card in the 70's. But probably it is winning multiple tournaments with my wife in couples competition. At least that is the biggest thing I have done in golf in my opinion.
