I made my first hole in one today!
OK, fine... My dad and I were teeing it forward and playing the red tees, so it was only from 63 stupid yards. From the tips, the course is 7100 yards and like 74.0, 141 or something, so it's a hard course, but obviously... yea it was the forward tees.
And even though it was so short, I honestly don't even give a shit. Mid-ball-flight I said "that might go in," and it took one hop and dropped. I hit the sweet spot, and it did exactly what I planned on it doing.
And you know, I have been practicing the 60 yard, 70, yard, 80 yard wedge shot quite a bit lately because that's a big weakness of mine, so... yea, this was special.
We had to go right after the round (we only played 9), so I couldn't buy anyone drinks, but maybe I'll do that next time if anyone's around at the bar.
Some potentially annoying news for me is that I have to get an MRI on my shitty elbow/triceps on Wednesday... thing's been killing me now for 2+ years and it's time for me to find out what's wrong... You'll see in my last post I referenced this injury, and it's simply just not going away. So this may be the last time I play for a while, but who really knows.
This game can be so intensely brutal that I'll take whatever I can get and run straight to the bank with it. My first one! Without this community here, no way I make this hole-in-one today. And again, I don't care if it was from 63 yards. I still had to carry water and the angle from 63 yards makes the green considerably smaller than, say, the tips, where it plays 220. It's a peninsula green and there was a 20 MPH wind if that makes this post less obnoxious to a purest.
Anyways.... again, I know, it's 63 yards, but this still counts, right? I think it does.
