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.

I finished dead last, two years in a row, for our city championship, 2012 and 2013.

Good question. 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 accomplishmen

Every so often, I beat Kirke in a putting contest.

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

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..

This ones tough because I have not played in anything crazy, no club championships or big tournaments.

i will say either A) in a short period.(have not been playing golf very long) got into single digit handicap and getting lower every year. Or B) this just happened after realizing I had a negative attack with driver which took a significant distance away from me. I hit 338 off the tee the other day, PB and am consistently close or over 300. Took some serious work this off season

While my lowest round is a 76, and I had a 78 this summer to go with a handful of 79s, this last week I shot an 80 and it felt like my best round ever.  Mammoth Dunes in Wisconsin.  A fantastic David Mclay Kidd track.  It was my first time there and I had a Vulcan mind meld with my caddie. Dropped in three birdies among five one putts.  Tells you there were a couple big numbers too. But walking up the 18th I finally added up my score ( actually going 17 holes without focusing on my score may actually be my biggest accomplishment...) and thought I needed a par ro shoot 79. Well, I got my par, but it wasn’t until the first bumps and congratulations were over that I realized it was a par 73, not a 72. I’d shot 7 over to shoot 80.  First 80 I’m not disappointed by.  I’ll be reveling in this one for a while.

Shooting 79 on an extremely windy day at Yas Links, a Golf Digest too 50 course. I actually almost went home after the front 9. Not my lowest score but, my most satisfying.

Biggest accomplishment in golf for me is definitely shooting under par once. Never had a swing lesson but I’ve been around golf courses my whole life and taught myself the swing. At the time I was playing a lot of golf and shot a 70 for a -1. Felt pretty damn good! Haha

Biggest for me is today finally getting to single figures on my handicap. Chuffed to bits, still got a long way to go but finally seeing decent results for my efforts

For me it's all the rounds I played with my Dad.  He's long gone now but looking back, I wish I'd have played more with him.  Unfortunately my kids when they were younger had no interest in the game so didn't get to share that with them.    Last year, I holed out for eagle on a par 4 in an interclub championship, that I wasn't even signed up for, but filled in for somebody that couldn't make it.  Won the match.

Almost 20 years ago my wife and I showed up for a round and were informed that the course screwed up our tee time, they had booked an outing, and we could only play 9. So we did. On the 7th tee I was 4 over. 7 is a very short straight par 5, and I made eagle. 8 is a slight dogleg par 4, and I birdied. 9 is another par 5. I hit two more good shots, and was on in 2 at about 12 feet. The entire outing was lined up in carts behind me in the parking lot, and apparently word got out that someone knew I was putting for eagle. When I made it I about jumped out of my skin when the entire outing exploded in cheers. I went 5 under the last 3 holes for my only 9 holes under par.

Biggest achievement was playing collegiate golf.  Winning multiple tournaments in college, playing in Nationals my sophomore year of JUCO, and 2 time All-Conference Team my Junior and Senior of the University I went to.  Was also just chosen to the All-Decade team for that school.

Hole in one on a 265M (292yd) Par 4. Hit a 3 wood, down wind, could not see it land as green is protected by a punker. Got up to the green and could not see it. Spent 4-5 minutes looking through the green, as I was doing so I told the guys to put out and when they went to take the flag out they realised that my ball was in the hole.

Par 4 Ace has to be my best accomplishment. Second would be my other Ace “on demand” from my son.
 

Third would be... haha, beating the pants off my dads old league partner.
