Hey guys I can now join the hole in one club. I'm 69 yrs old usually play from senior tees. Yesterday played with 6 of us from the white for a little $ game. I holed out on a par 3, 127 yards with a 8.

Pretty exciting.😉

Awesome!

That's great. I have a feeling I could play until I am 100 and still not get one. Suppose I have to hit the green first though 😁

Hey Man ,I thought the same thing after my son got his second one. Keep playing and it will come😉

I only bought drinks for the 2 guys in my group. Not buying for a whole clubhouse full of greedy strangers

Wait—you didn’t buy for us, too? 
 

@Sandtrapp220—Congrats! I’ve seen a hole in one made on three occasions, and it’s awesome to watch each time.

Yay! Good for you!
Congratulations! 

Any plans to save the ball, put it in a little case, or a plague, or otherwise display the achievement?

Yeah, my wife has plans for something.

Have to tell you, 

I'm not opposed to it. 

Pretty neat experience. 😊

Yeah, don't do like I did and continue to play with the ball and promptly lose it later in the round. :-$:~(

    • Day 6.  Played fourball, lost 2&1.  Hit the ball well, drove it much better than I usually do, putted better than Sunday but not as good as I'd have liked.   Made two putts over 10' during the round, so that was cool. 
    • In addition to the above: The idea of Tiger being in a wheelchair for months does not imply that he is a cripple unable to get around any other way, it refers to the idea that a sensible way of aiding rehabilitation is to keep the injuries stable, and keeping undue weight off them is an important way of doing so. He will most likely get to a point within a couple of months, or several weeks or a perhaps just a few weeks where he can use a combination of both crutches and a wheelchair. In the same way that he'd be crazy to use stairs when he can use a lift at a certain point in his recovery.    
    • Lots of speculation there. 😉 I don't think there have been any people who have stated categorically what they KNOW will happen. The consensus would be that the implications are dire with regard to a return to top level competitive golf and pretty much everyone hopes that he will be able to return to some semblance of normality sooner rather than later. Most people have focused on Tiger the person rather than Tiger the golfer, which I think is pretty fair and reasonable. Also, he has more than a "broken leg and fractured ankle". Those terms cover a wide range, obviously, but this was no minor accident. The topic of the thread invited people to speculate, as you have done. I think it's all pretty moot, anyway. I would speculate that the last thing he would want to do would be to be seen as a charity case or a freak show "wildcard" tournament entry and shoot 86 and then withdraw. I don't think people have said that a return would CAUSE further major injury, it's a question of whether the current injuries will prevent a serious return to COMPETITIVE tournament play which is the only thing that interests him with regard to his presence at a tournament  as a player. (I think)
    • I always laugh when something like this happens and all the interweb know-it-alls start speculating... "he'll be in a wheelchair for the next 12 months!" - over a broken leg and fractured ankle?  He will not be in a wheelchair for a year, he's not paralyzed.  "He needs to retire, no need to risk his health!" - what, given his injury history already, could he possibly do playing GOLF that would debilitate him permanently?  And yes, I'm well aware of how golf can screw up a persons body given the amount of muscles used... but still, coming back and playing golf, at worst, could only likely result in an additional injury that *might* at *worst* actually end his playing days as a competitor.  It's not like returning to golf is going to put him in a wheelchair permanently from trying to smoke a drive.  At this point, I hope he recovers fully, and I do hope that if he can, he returns to playing golf.  If not, so be it.  But who am I to say or anyone else here "no need to risk your health Tiger, retire!"
    • If they all got legit handicaps and you can split it relatively even, you could do a Ryder Cup style event.
