So I was watching the GC and playing lessons from the pros with Bubba.  Towards the end he was talking with Johnny Damon about how he has never had an ACE in his whole life, but his caddi and wife both have.

So I was thinking I would start this for everone to share how long they have been playing and still do not have an ACE

If you have had a hole in one how long did it take you?

Me 15 years and no ACE.....yet

p.s I looked to see if there was another thread like this and never found one.

I've also never had a hole in one. During a tournament several years back I landed a ball in the cup on a 185-yard par 3.  The ball took a chunk out of the lip and hopped out 2 inches left of t

Been playing off and on for 12 years.  Finally getting serious this year.  Only been close one time the ball rolled right by the cup and finished 2 feet passed.  Par 3 about 160 10 feet down hill, man... I can still see it.

That's shocks me that a tour player never had one--with all the golf he's played and that he's probably hitting a sand wedge to most par 3's.  Guess I'm in good company

I was shocked when I heard that too.  I guess I'm not doing that bad then haha

I have had a couple close ones within a foot.

Never!! came close a few times. one was at an short par 4 (271 yards). hit 3 wood and came within 3 feet for the hole in one. of course, I missed my dang putt and made a birdie instead. I've hit the flagstick once on a 110 yard par 3. and just last week friday, on a par 3, I hit into the water on the tee and hit again from the tee box and stuck it within a foot. so, almost saved par. other than that, none. my dad who plays off and on (twice a year) has had 2. witnessed 1 of them. very exciting.

Playing on and off again for 30 years with no aces... Numerous "flaggies" (tee shot inside the length of the flag pole) but nothing really really close.  Maybe this year?

I have been playing a long time, on seriously the last few years, and have never had an ace.  I have had a couple of eagles on par 4 holes, but alas, never a 1 on a par 3.

Been playing on and off since I was a kid, and never had an ace.  Been close a few times, but never made it.  Had two REALLY close calls last year, on the same hole.  The only two times I played the course all year.  Maybe I should've played it more and I would've found the hole.

    • Shot 82 yesterday, 14 GIR/nGIR, 29 putts, zero penalty strokes. Ball striking was pretty good. No exceptional shots, but all my misses were manageable, except one approach that I toed so bad I almost missed the ball completely. Driver contact was higher on the face the usual, which resulted in some higher and shorter drives.  After putting in some practice time on chipping and pitching last week, there was a noticeable improvement in my short game. I had 5 GIR, and each birdie putt was in a makeable range, but none dropped, but made up for it with some 1-putt pars, including a sand save.
    • I'm in Southeast Florida.  The course I typically play has reduced rates for the off season between the end of April until the end of August.  Sometimes rates further reduce in the afternoon.  Afternoons during the summer would be the time you can likely find the lowest rates.  People avoid those times due to the heat.  Rates are highest between fall and spring.  Peak is typically Thanksgiving to Easter when seasonal resident (snowbird) play is at its highest.
    • Yup. I have started to play better recently and the soft cap was removed. I am now closer to my low index than I am to the high index that triggered the soft cap. Frankly, I have no problem when my cap is going downward. It means I am playing and scoring better. I usually play for some money and I notice I win more when my index is close to the low index. I was getting hammered as my cap went up. The extra strokes meant nothing. 
    • When I read this, it makes so much sense.  Without having given it much thought before, I had assumed the opposite up to and including yesterday's round (and I can count for-sure a double bogey I made where I assumed that it would be straight for my bogey putt). This is going to have to be something I keep in mind going forward.
