My aunt has 2. My friend that has played about 10x in his life skulled one into the cup one round. I even recently saw on the news a blind guy got one. I've had leaners, hit the pin, and just about every near miss you can imagine! I think this has to be the year!
None here. I was awfully close in February, when a hit a 9-iron that spun 3 feet back from the pitch mark and was tracking towards the pin. Unfortunately, it stopped 6 inches short of the cup. A tap in birdie had never felt so unsatisfying.
Interestingly, I was playing with a member of our men's club this weekend, who mentioned that he and his dad were vying back and forth for most holes in one. He was currently leading with 9 vs. 8 for his old man. Sure, he was a really good golfer, but all I could think was "spread the love out a little bit, golf gods!"
