Bieleniewicz records “Double Eagle” at Starfire...


Scoring a “2” on a par 5 is so uncommon that it is nearly impossible to calculate the odds. In any case, long time member Jim Bieleniewicz accomplished the feat on 2/27/2016 at the SGL event at the Starfire Golf Club in Scottsdale. The 479 yard #4 hole on the Hawk course was the opening par 5 of the Hawk to King event on a usual perfect Arizona golf day. Playing partners in the group who witnessed the achievement were Steve Oliva, Bradley Walker and Jeff Morrissey. As described by Jim, after hitting driver off the tee to the left side of the fairway and getting a yardage of 196 to the flag from Morrissey, he faded a 4 iron to the green with a right middle flag position. Not knowing exactly where the ball had ended up, Oliva watched as Jim walked up and looked into the hole, and then Jim looked up and smiled and said “It’s in the Hole”. Jim went on to a shoot a 1 over par 71 and finish 1st in his flight. Pictured above is SGL President Dave Dean presenting Jim with the framed score card of his feat. Congratulations Jim!
