There is no such thing as a double eagle
A birdie is ONE under, an eagle is TWO under- the next step is THREE under which UK golfers call an albatross. It CANNOT be a double eagle purely on mathematical principles as 3 is NOT the double of 2- simple ... please discussThe discussion was posted by Stephen Smith, a senior psychologist and a sports psychologist.

I offered a lighthearted comment, saying, "There is definitely no such thing as a double eagle—or an albatross—when it comes to my golf experience. Ha! Anyone in this group actually record one?"

I have. I had been laid off playing for a few months after house move and went and played Crookhill Park in South Yorkshire. Opens with a shortish par 5. Hit a borrowed driver and then smoothed a three iron with a touch of draw around the tree in the fairway and she ran and ran straight into the hole. Unfortunately I was playing alone and the only people that saw was the group in front they didn't know it was [an albatross]. Second hole managed an 8 LOL and that proves the golf gods give and take LOLSo I have to ask ...
Has anyone else made an albatross? Tell us. The comments section is open.
