Just out of said age range, i'm 18, had my birthday in April, but i'm still considered a juinor at my golf club, also we have recently had a large group of young kids join our club, 15 - 20 of them aged 12 - 15, and they are treated as full members, there are no restrictions placed on them and they are allowed to enter all the tournaments, and rightfully so, some of them are very talented(in my opinion) in under a year they are on handicaps of 10 - 15.
i was going to say that for me, nothing can compete with my hole in one, but when i was playing with my brother (12 years old, never played golf before) on friday, seeing him birdie the second hole (102 meter par three) by driving the green with my 3 wood and sinking a 2 - 2 1/2 meter putt without even lining up, that was one of the best experiences i have had on a golf course, i just started laughing when it dropped.
During my club's canadian matchplay final in december 2005, on the 15th hole my father and i were one up, i chipped on within a foot, i thought i heard the other team concede (as they were at least two putts away from completing the hole and we were one shot ahead at this stage), i still don't know why i did it, trying to be nice maybe? i picked up the other teams ball and handed it to them (i was walking past and thought i would save them the trouble of walking over to pick it up) that started a run a bad holes and we ended up losing 1 down on the 18th, at the time i was extremely embarrassed and to this day when it is mentioned i still feel as embarrassed.
i wasn't a member of the forum when this happened a couple of weeks ago, but it involed the best shots i have ever played (and probably ever will play) The first 5 holes involved 14 shots for 19 stableford points, if i had to pick one, it would be my tee shot on the 5th hole, a 178 meter uphill par 3, put it 2 feet behind the hole, must of missed the hole by inches when it rolled past. i was on such a high, when i tee'd off on the sixth, i put two balls straight out of bounds, didn't bother me at all.
