Funning thing about those double maxes: You can be in a group with people who take them -- and you count all your strokes on a hole -- and when they add up the scores at the end, they'll tell you how they shot 81 and you shot 82, when in fact, had they counted all their shots, they would have shot around 85. Tough on the ego sometimes and you just have to bite your lip at the end. Truth is nobody really cares what you shot but you, unless you set a course record. Found that out a long time ago, but I still have to keep reminding myself of that. Such is golf.

Such is golf.

Also of interest is WorldGolf member, Mike Bailey's real life eagle 3 on that tough Dune's #13. He says, "I hit 6-iron, 3-wood and then holed a sand wedge. It was the best back nine I ever had in a tournament -- think I shot 33 or 34 and wound up finishing second in my flight. And it was cool, because it was one of those shots that went past the hole by three or four feet and then spun backwards. We had forecaddies that year, and ours was going nuts after the shot. I didn't realize it was that big a deal at the time, but apparently they never had an eagle there during the Senior Tour Championship either. "I think I've had my share of doubles and bogeys on that hole as well." Bailey received a plaque for this feat at the Golf Writers Association Dinner that night.
