Hole in One!

12 posts in this topic

Hello,

I got my first hole in one recently, at a local course in Eureka, Ca.   It was a par 4 287 yard, ( markers said 298 but I measured it) with my 3 wood.  The people near the green waiting for the next hole, were standing there when I teed off, and the ball was going near them, when the ball landed they turn there heads, and I thought oh crap I almost hit them.  It turns out they heard it hit, and were surprised and just backed up a little bit.  They said it hit a little rise a few yards past the green, on the slope, and caused the ball to roll backwards and in the hole!

Goosen has to replace his ball. No ace.

I thought Goosen got a two stroke penalty on top of the fact that it counted for KJ Choi. When I watched this thing, it looked like Goosen's ball went in. I guess it didn't matter if he got a 2 stroke penalty. Either of them could make the 6 footer left. Was this how KJ ended up winning?

Ummm, no.  It's what Zip said.  KJ Choi leaves his ball where it is, no penalty, and Goosen puts his ball back where it was, no penalty, no hole-in-one.

That's it.  (Had it been Choi's ball that carromed into the hole, that would be a different story.)

Assuming they both made the putt, does this mean that KJ needed to win the next hole? I remember it being announced that he won the match, but now I have no idea how ne did it.

If they both made their putts they both made birdie. According to the graphic they were both -4 going into the hole, therefore -5 after it if they both made their putts. It was the 18th hole, so if it was the last round, playoff. If not, tied going into the next round.

Goosen and Choi aside, an amateur gets a double eagle on a 300 yard Par 4? That's the kind of item that makes the Sports Illustrated blurb page. Did the golf course call it in to the local media?

That's true, I think they have a plaque for the people who aced the first hole on One of my local courses. I should ask. BTW, back to goosen and choi, did you hear the announcer say 271 yards, but the tee box sign said 217 yards? Either way, it is really impressive that these two shoot for the pin at 200+ yards.

Nope you had to be member at the course to get recognition, all I got was good job, and it will be listed as the first person to get a hole in one on a par 4 at the course, but no name

Hmm. Sounds like a double secret double eagle if there's an ace but they won't identify the perp. BTW, I know someone who aced a par 3, but refused to tell the Pro Desk (and this course adds your name to a the wall plaque) because he carded something like a 118.

That announcer was wacko. "He's got some meat on this one. It could be too much!" BTW, those swings sure looked smooth and easy.

      How does the bank lose money? Is inflation that bad that the 30,000 euros of interest is not enough to cover it? Is it because the bank no longer has that money at their disposal to invest for a potentially larger return on their investment when compared to a mortgage?

      paradoxal bank fact : in our banks in france if you take a mortgage of 100 000 euros for 20 years at 2,5 interest rate you will probably pay close to 30 000 euros of interest. this seams huge to customers. nevertheless the bank might loose money or have à max a 200 euros margin per year. the only way we make money is on the mortgage insurance policy part and getting a long time customer in the bank.

    • Myrtle Beach in early March part duex
      Okay I think you may be a little confused on your location...You said that you are staying at Holiday Sands North close to the Boardwalk.  Your Hotel is centrally located in Myrtle Beach.  A lot of people not familiar of the area mistakenly think that "North Myrtle Beach" is referring to an area in the Northern part of Myrtle Beach.  Actually it is a separate city that is located a good ten miles from where you are staying.  The closest "North Myrtle Beach" courses to you would be the Barefoot Resort courses which are about 13 miles from you and are considered higher end courses where you will be paying probably around $125 per round to play unless you book a package deal or play with a member.  The next closest North Myrtle Beach courses which are mid-tiered and a little more price friendly that may seem to be what you are looking for are a little farther north into North Myrtle located probably about 15 to 17 miles from where you are staying.   The closest courses to where you are staying include Myrtlewood, Pine Lakes Country Club, River Oaks Plantation, World Tour, and the Legends courses.  All are probably right within the amount of travel time that you are looking at.  I would second the earlier poster that you contact @bnlongdriver.  Tell him (Brian) what you are looking for and he will set you up nicely.  I would definitely avoid GolfNow for anything related to Myrtle Beach.  Very few courses down there work with Golf Now and the few that do are lower tiered courses that you probably wouldn't want to play as there are many better choices for the money that you will be playing.  Looks like you will be going right as the peak golf season is starting to get underway so last minute deals, although probably available, will be a bit more difficult to come by.  However, if this is the route that you want to take, again I would contact Brian as he has the ability to get a lot of very good "48 hour" rates.  If you go ahead and contact him now and let him know that's the way you want to go, he will be able to keep you in mind and as the time of your arrival nears will have a better idea of what to find you.
