The 25 Most Birdied Golf Holes of 2020

By: Golfshake Editor | Fri 13 Nov 2020 | Comments


Everyone loves making a birdie, it's the promise of those magical moments that keep us coming back for more. Augusta National has been a feast of birdies during The Masters - and we are delighted to see that the Golfshake Community were getting into the same spirit throughout 2020.

Masses were recorded on the Golfshake Score Tracker in this most unusual of seasons, particularly within the qualifying periods for both the #BirdieClub and #EarlyBirdie Challenges that were launched in the summer and autumn.

However, just where are our golfers making those positive numbers? We decided to find out by analysing the data.

From thousands of eligible holes, there are 25 that have stood out above the rest as being the Most Birdied. Looking at scores tracked between May and October 2020, from rounds between 70 and 109 by golfers with handicaps between 2 and 20, these holes each saw a minimum of 15 rounds submitted during that period. 

Have you played any of these? Our St Andrews based Editor Kieran Clark is wondering where he's been going wrong all these years at the sight of the New Course's 12th on the list. 

Let us know which hole you seem to birdie more than any other!
