First hole in one!!

28 posts in this topic

Played Eagle Trace today out in Broomfield, CO and holed my tee shot on the par 3 17th!

It was 123 yards with a strong in your face left to right wind with a front pin position.  I used the AW, pured the shot and took 2 hops and in the hole!!

What a fantastic day!  I never thought I'd get one in my life.  We got pretty drunk with everyone in the bar after the round!

Just had to share :)

It doesn't count if you don't bring your buddies for a drink, so good thing you took care of that.

Congratulations! :beer:

After 45+ years of golf, it's still zero for me.  I promise, you all WILL hear about if it ever happens!

Got my first one today. I have been playing 3 years. It was at Fullerton golf course in California. Hole #6 176 yards. I used a 3 hybrid. I walked on by myself and was paired with someone. I bought him a beer. The hook just got set a little deeper with my golf addiction !

The first time I ever played a 18hole course I almost made a hole in one. Was a cheeky little 125 yard par 3 downhill. Hit a lucky PW and it just went straight for the pin and lipped out and landed a few inches away. I was gutted but couldnt believe I hit a straight shot.

One day I may get that elusive hole in one. :)

Worst round ever, but 1st hole in one today..

Par 3 7th hole - 170 yards down hill no wind.

6i - 1 hop 5ft below the flag and it rolled right to left and then dropped in the cup!

Congratulations!  I have come close, but have not finished the job.

I hope you get it soon.  Although, I would rather be a 13 or 14 than just getting 1 hole in..

Although, it might be an interesting tale at some point to say.. yeah back when I was terrible I actually hit a hole in one..

    • 2016 Waste Management Phoenix Open Discussion
      Actually, they mentioned today that it's an environmental requirement imposed by the government; local, state or federal, they weren't sure.
    • Steel vs Graphite generic question
      Spin is OK though? I could be flipping a little but I may need work on Key #3 to get that launch down to where it needs to be... Because I SHOULD be carrying my 7-iron 160-165 with that speed.  Maybe the motor is fine (the shaft), just need to work on in-line impact more...
    • Finding Value in The Used Club Market
      I'm liking this:   That makes a lot of sense.  Local Retailers may be getting some of the last years models dumped on them when the new clubs start cycling through.  I was thinking about doing the demo days thing to get a taste of what is out there.  The R7 limited and R11 Taylormade Drivers were good to me.  I think a X2 hot/Big Bertha/etc/ect would probably be more forgiving.  Still, I look at the clubs of old... the Cleveland Launcher Comp / Callaway Hawkeye and think: "If I can buy that club for $20... and I can buy newer (used) for $50-$100... hmmm.  Spinning the wheels.  Thanks for the advice though I really appreciate it. If anyone has a Driver / had a Driver they loved from (2009-2014) let me know about it!  What did you like/didn't like?
    • My ex-home courses closing, changing - proofs that golf is in decline
      I just found out that my ex-home course, Sunol Valley Golf course, went out of business last month.  I played 2 - 3 times a week for 2 years not too long ago.  The course was done in by shrinking golfers, and 500% increase in water cost in the last 4 years of CA drought.  They could not make money.   Another ex-home course is now doing business as a golf and foot golf (soccer golf) course.  Golfing customers were not enough. Another course nearby (Santa Clara Tennis and Golf Club) is going to turn into a parking lot for a recently built football stadium. It is sad that despite improved economy in Bay Area, CA, golf business is in decline.  They have been in decline since 1990s but most of the courses around here survived 2008-9 recession.  The current drought and the resulting water cost going through the roof appears to be the final nail in the coffin for the weaker courses.   Sad.
    • Injury Question
      I didn't play golf for about 11 weeks due to it being difficult to play with work after day light savings time fell back.  Now, from the sounds of it, I played through the majority of the repair time as I walked 9 holes 4-5 times a week with 1 day of walking 18 for 7-9 weeks after the injury....I know, I'm an idiot. As it stands now I don't really notice it 90% of the time, its just something that pops up on a swing every now and then.  From the sounds of your healing time, I may have caused it to heal improperly leaving me with a hitch....  If I really just need to not do anything and it'll heal over time then I'd gladly do it, kicking and screaming the entire way as I already had a plan in place to push my handicap into the single digits by years end. I don't like the sound of having something happen as "I get older," I'm only 26 damn it .
