Is there anything better than an albatross, by the way? if so, I don't know the name for it.
Had one once <img src="http://www.golf-monthly.co.uk/forums/images//graemlins/shocked.gif" alt="" /> 2 on the par 5 18th at Nairn Dunbar. 5 wood into the hole. Never thought it was as good as my only hole in one for some strange reason!
I'm confused! A double eagle is the same as an albatross, isn't it? 1 on a par 4 or 2 on a par five.What about a 'double eagle' the w.. yanks call an albatros a double eagle when in fact a double eagle would be a hole in one at a par five.
Shanker, you are right it is 3 under par and has been called an albatross for centuries but the manky yanks want to own the sport and throw away the history.
