My buddy Geoff made a nice double-eagle 2 on the 500 yard par-5 11th at Bear Creek on Saturday. We played the blue tees. He hit a long cut off the tee and had 180 in on his second shot. Hit a beautiful, high, cut 7-iron to a tucked right pin. When we got up there, the ball was resting against the flagstick, but as we walked up to the green, the ball disappeared for a 2!

Other one was a good ten years ago, buddy holed a 4-iron from 210 on number 17 at SCGA Golf course in Murrieta.

That sounds like how I played a similar hole in my dreams.  However, instead of falling, a bird grabs the ball and drops in the hazard next to the green.

Semantics, but here goes:  Why not a triple birdie instead of a double eagle?  Double eagle implies 2* -2 (-4), not -3.   A triple bogey is not the same as a double double bogey...
