  1. 2 χτυπηματα σε 509μ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Λογικο να πανηγιριζει!?!?!?!?

  2. -3 = Albatross
    -2 = Eagle
    -1 = Birdie
    0 = Par

    The Albatross is usually done, as in this video, on a par 5. Killer drive, then make next shot. Or make your tee shot on a par 4, total rarity. Impossibility on a par 3.

  3. Birdie (-1), Eagle (-2) and an Albatross (-3)……..what will they call a FOUR under par shot? A Dodo? Since you are more likely to see a Dodo than you are a hole-in-one on a Par 5…….
