Hole in three today  

post #1 of 79
Thread Starter 

Apollo bay golf club, Victoria, Australia. 1st hole, 120 meter par 3. Into the wind. So i played a 3/4 swing with what's amusingly called a 7/8 iron(yes, it's stamped on the bottom of the club!). Anyhow 2 bounces a bit of a check and it rolled straight in. The great thing ....well there are 3 great things 1. my wife was watching from the car(so now she ACTUALLY believes that I can play golf!) 2. this is my second hole in one 3. this was my first as a right hander, I decided to flip to right hand about 3 weeks ago. 

 

The people coming down the 9th heard the giggly laughing and the running in circles and thought I was having some kind of Epileptic seizure. I'm still a bit giggly

Congratulations!

One from each side. THAT'S something very few people can lay claim to!

Congrats! Not much in golf as exciting as an ace!

Congrats Logman. Well done.

An ace from both sides is pretty cool.  I've yet to hit one, so don't know the actual feeling but can imagine it's got to be awesome.  Congrats

Congrats buddy!

I had my first one a few weeks ago. It's a great feeling. Having one from each side is unique.

Congrats Logman, well done!

 

Only 3 weeks and already a hole in one is pretty darn impressive.

 

I am a fairly decent athlete and consider myself somewhat ambidextrous, as far as throwing a ball or swinging a bat, but a golf club?  That's another story.  Good for you sir!

If I remember correctly from another thread, he's played right handed before. Something about more power from on side but more touch from the other.

Now you need one in the Northern Hemisphere.

Congratulations!

 

I tell people I have many flaws, but I have been perfect three times in my life - 8/22/75 with a 7-iron, 8/3/91 with a 9-iron & 5/5/92 with a 6-iron.

Wow!  Congrats on hitting a hole-in-one as a righty, when you normally play lefty!  That is definitely a very nice accomplishment that you can be proud of.  I'd say you are in a very elite class... And if you have witnesses of the two (one from each side), could quite possibly get some recognition from various golf media outlets?

 

Oh, and I've been playing golf for a long time... At least a thousand rounds under my belt and have yet to hit a hole in one. a4_sad.gif

 

Actually, just a few weeks back, on January 5th in a tournament, was the first time anyone in my foursome as a playing partner has hit a hole-in-one.  We were playing at San Juan Hills, Hole #7 from the Blue tee's.  The hole was playing ~ 175 with a pretty strong right to left wind.  First my playing partner/teammate Mike stepped up hit a pure shot to a foot right of the hole.  We were all joking that he needed to aim a foot left next time.  Then the guy I was playing directly against (match play - stroke play) on the opposing team dunked it on a one hopper.  Perfect line, perfect shot.  We were all hooting and hollaring, and I was stunned - and still am to this day that he hit a hole in one on me.  Especially when my teammate hit it to within a 1ft on the same exact hole (he did make his birdie too).  It was pretty stunning.

 

I think the funniest part about that round/day was that I was giving the guy I was playing against 7 strokes.  He hit an ace on #7 and then birdied #8 to go -3 for those two holes.  On the same two holes I went +3.  Somehow, I ground out the round and still beat him and took 6pts for the team. 

 

Gotta love this game we play!! c2_beer.gif

Wow, congrats!

 

Maybe there is something to this LPG thing...

Congrats. I have been playing all my life and have never gotten one playing right handed.

I couldnt putt left handed. I wouldnt consider taking a full swing.

If/when I hit my first I will be smiling for probably a month.

I actually got one as a kid, playing a par 3 course by myself and didn't see it go in.  I thought it was lost when I didn't see it on the green.  I can only barely remember it now.  Probably the least exciting hole in one ever.
