    Wow 44 is amazing !! I am trying to get my head around how to even do this challenge!! I was thinking a course like Bethpage  where you get 25/30 lies in fairway bunkers but even then gotta go bunker to bunker then make par 15 times minimum that would be 36 bunker shots maybe take 2 extras in greenside bunkers and still come in under 75...But that's only 38 bunker shots I cant see goin bunker to bunker on par 5's ...

    Also I can see hitting EVERY greenside bunker.... BUT you need to make pars so how in the H*ll do you take more than 1 bunker shot there? Par 5's you can easily take 2 but par 4's and 3's??? ...All of this with making every single putt to save par and a few Bogeys? 

    25 even 30 worth a go ...But 44?? I would love Mags to stream that round!! 

    I must be missing the "Secret Glitch"  ....Unless someone wants to enlighten me on what I am missing here ...I think I'll sit this one out

    Fmags did it on best of par 3's, which is par54... the original award was set for par 72 courses, so it def what I didn't intend to happen, but it was my mistake...

    but if it works, then fair is fair... 44 is the # now.. but higher is better :)

    OHHHHHHHHHHHHH   WELL SH*T Mr.Icon  LOL I didn't even consider Par 3's as a legit round??  That makes the 75 needed not even super Impressive lol I mean the putting still has to be there so there is that.... I wonder if you get the award in "Practice" format (even less impressive) set short tee's and "Standard" greens...

    Short tees will work, but I don't think you'll get the actual diamond unless it's on a regular course. I'm guessing the par 3 will give you the number on the awards, but not the actual diamond part of the award. Fmags already had the diamond.

    I'm with ya, same here. ­čĄú A typical case that you gotta be able to think outside the box, I guess... Thanks for the hints, Chris.

    Well... I guess there's only one way to find out : try it by oneself and see what gives.

    EDIT:

    Okay, I just tried it on Best of Bandon Par 3 and as Brett pointed out, it doesn't count for Diamond. Looks like it has to be done on a regular course.

    I've also noticed that some bunker shots aren't counted in the number. I was counting the shots I hit from bunkers... I'm positive it was 36 but it only shows 32 on the award. Bizarre...

    Well if that's the case and Mags ALREADY had the Diamond award and the number was changed on said award due to his "recent 44"  on the best of Par 3's

                           WELL...I CALL

    He did it as  CC tournament, which may allow you to do it. I do think more than 44 is possible, but pretty hard... :)
