What makes the most satisfying birdie?

Approach to the 17th at Greystones
This is my question to you, based on something that happened a couple of weeks ago. On two consecutive days I made birdie on different courses and in very different ways.

Day 1: The 17th at Greystones is Index 4 and a par four. I hit a perfect drive to the top of the hill, leaving just a wedge in. I hit that perfectly too, putting it six feet away from the pin. The putt rolled in at perfect pace. Birdie.

Day 2: The 5th at Mount Juliet, an S-shaped par five. I pushed my drive into a bunker. Hit a decent-enough bunker shot that took me back across the fairway and under trees. With a three-quarter swing I bladed the shot and somehow reached the green. Sank the putt from 30 feet... but would have gone several feet past if it had missed. Birdie.

So, after such different experiences, which of those two would give you the most satisfaction... there's a poll in the top right corner of this blog - please add your preference.
