Re: How many "ACES" do you have?
Never had an ace, but I had a really close call yesterday. I was playing as a single, and I was playing through a foursome on the 11th, a par 3. It was about 160 yards to the pin (the scorecard says "152" but I know it's horseshit: it's at least 160), and I took a shot with my 7 iron right at the pin. The wind was howling from left to right, so my draw never happened...the ball made a beeline for the pin and made a pitchmark about three inches from the hole.
If only it've gone in, I could have given Vijay a run for his money...
But perhaps, it's good on my wallet that the ball didn't
go in. Buying a free round of drinks for everyone would set me back at least a month in golf money.
I did make the birdie putt with the foursome watching, though.
(Granted, this is the first year that I'm taking golf really seriously--until now, I'd just bang the ball around a bit, whatever. I probably have plenty of chances in the future...I'd hope...)
