Had my first legit eagle on a par 5 today. Had one over the winter but I was playing the senior tees due to the conditions. Driver/FW to 20 feet and made the putt. Hole is listed as 477 - I'm sure the tees were up a little, but this one is legit.
Nice eagle 3. I am also a bit ambivalent when faced with a sub-450 "par 5". As I age, I appreciate shorter par 5's but when it dips below a reasonable number, I can't get too excited.

Opening shot of our tournament on 7/26. We started on #17 (shotgun start) 170 yards over water to a back pin. Wind in our face. The vegetation growing on the shore near the green obscured the target (note: I find this situation uncomfortable - not able to see the green).

I hit what was likely the most solid hybrid of 2018. It had a nice draw and ended up 12-15 feet from the hole with an uphill putt. :yess

I promptly 3-putted. :facepalm

But then, we are not talking about the putts, just the opening shot. :thumbs

p.s. the above shot beat out my 4th ace, and 2nd of 2018, which I collected yesterday. ;) )

So ironically it was a ball I found and it has a logo of a remodeling company (VB Homes) on it. Unfortunately my wife works for a competitor of theirs.

Oh yeah it's not hard to fix. Hell I fell through my bedroom ceiling when doing work in the attic that was a big f'ing hole to fix. I'll have it fixed before I get a new net delivered

That's not irony by the way. That is more like a coincidence. Yes I am a irony nazi.

So I'm not disagreeing with you as I'm confident you have a better grasp of linguistics than me.

But how is it not irony that a golf ball with the logo of a home remodeling company was used to put a hole in the wall?

Because it's doesn't like, defy what's expected. If the logo on the ball was of say, the company that sold you the net, and they had guaranteed it wouldn't split on you, then there'd be some irony in seeing their ball embedded in the drywall. Maybe. What happen to you is more like, serendipitous or something.

Props to rukket. They sent me a free replacement net. I was not expecting that. I'm going to buy a 2nd and double net it
