How many rounds in a row can you birdie at least one hole?

Took the streak to 8 today. One birdie, and it's about the only good thing I did in the whole round. :LOL:

Finally... by hole 3. I can't imagine the anticipation of 2 straight holes without a birdie.

The wording there probably isn't the best, but I meant it as I should have birdied one or both of the first 2. I had really good looks. That's all.

2; took care of business on #2, with a smooth 5h off the tee and knock-down 52* wedge to 8 feet. It was the only putt I hit all day.

After 2 straight shutouts I got a pair yesterday. Back in the thread at 1 round and did it @OldandStiff style with birdies on the first 2 holes. I've played that course maybe 15 times over the past several years and don't ever recall making bird on either of those holes.

Right out of the gate, and double digit birdies today, but it counts as 1 more round.

You must be a great putter. I feel like I had 8 legitimate looks at bird today and converted only three. One of the three was a two putt, when I reached a par 5 in two, so there was nothing special about my putting there. I would love to convert a couple more per round.

I'm a good putter, and putted well today, but the putts matter too. I play to good putting position more than most, and I was pretty lights out on approach today. I missed one green, and other than that was outside of 15' one other time I think. 5'✅, 4'✅, 13'❌, 14'✅, 9'❌, 11'❌, 7'✅, 18'❌, 6'✅, 10'❌, 13'❌, 10'✅, 14'✅, Sand, 6'✅, 15'❌, 9'✅, 13'✅ The last putt was the only putt I made with more than 8" of break I think. You know I track that. Position and the putts matter. And it's a lot easier to get in a rhythm when your putts look like that. Not that a day like today is typical thougjh.

It’s true that good putting starts with a good position from which to putt. The two putts that I made were under 10’, with a little right to left break in them. Five of your made putts were under 10’.

Go by 10' and under, and it's 7 of them. 7 for 9. Which is a good day. I work hard to have a lot of them under 12' though, because the percentages drop off like crazy outside of that.

Currently have my record 3 rounds in a row with birdies currently, ironically on some of the hardest courses I've ever played. I didn't even break 100 on one of the rounds. Although, they did have really nice greens and I was putting extremely well for me.

A few triples and quad blow up holes make my scores look like I wouldn't even know what a birdie attempt looks like.

Time to start a new streak! Two birdies in a row yesterday takes me to 1 round.

I’m happy to finally be able to post in this thread - 2 round streak is my best so far! Sadly it ended yesterday - had two great looks for birdies that both came up about a ball length short and ones I should have made.

I cannot overemphasize how much I agree with previous comments about how putting position matters. The difference between a technical GIR but with a horrible 30 ft winding putt for birdie, vs. a GIR leaving you 10 ft. or less is just huge, as I found out the hard way.

Took the streak to 10 today with 2 birdies - which was surprising considering the game (or lack thereof) I had going on.
