Same here. I had one stop short of the hole with the edge of the ball hanging over the hole but it didn't fall in and another on a par 4 that was a couple of inches away.
Even though of course there is some luck involved I blame my inaccurate ball striking with irons much more that bad luck. Just don't give myself enough chances considering how many rounds of golf I've played in the last 10 years. (Should have had a bunch of them).
On a par 3 last week all 5 guys in our group hit the green. One of the guys said "I don't think I've ever seen 5 guys in a row hit this green".
I told him I haven't either and mostly because it's me that misses the green knocking myself out of the chance to see it.
