Hi my name is chris and i just joined the forums.  I just started started golfing april of 2010.  i went out with some family in october to a course called cedar hills. was having a pretty good day for me.  we got to the 16 hole which is a par 3. the four of us all hit a bad shot off the tee and decided we should all hit a mulligan. everyone lands on the green and its my shot. a friend of mine hit his ball about a foot away from the hole and i said to him how can i hit now after that lol.  i took out my pitching wedge and took aim at the flag my ball hit the front of the green and rolled forward right by his ball hit the flag and dropped in. no one could see my ball but we all heard it hit the pin. i said theres no way it went in. we drove up to the green got out and sure enough my ball was in the hole. everyone went crazy even the guys waiting on the next tee. should i feel good about it? it was a mulligan so technically not a true hole in one.

Obviously not a hole in one. I don't know what you mean when you say "technically not" a hole in one. It was not an ace. Simple as that. You weren't playing by the rules. It wasn't your first and only shot on the hole. Not sure how you would even consider this as an ace, You may as well say you have one putted after missing a putt and having a practice putt and holing it.

Just take it as a great shot and be happy with it.  It is fun when you have shots like that because you know that you can do it and it's not a fluke.  It will make you a more confident golfer.

It's a good shot, but only a par for you. Hope you didn't waste your only HIO on that shot. :-P

Great shot, and any way you slice it, holing out from the tee box is something to be proud of.  If I were you, I'd just hurry up and get a "real" one so you don't have to explain the asterisk next to your ace.  After all, you've done it once, how hard can it be?  :-P

Great shot is a great shot. But still not an ace, you got a par though thats good.

Its funny my friend holed out from 200 yesterday on a par4, only problem is it was for double bogey lol. He took three Tee shots 2 went in the woods and his 3rd in the rough 200 out and he nailed it right into the cup. We went nuts but still gave him a 6 lol.

You could call it a hole in one, but every time you tell the story you'd have to lie, and the golf goods frown upon lying. Your be fighting you own conscious as well.

just curious, what did you put on your card?

Who puts anything on a card when they're taking mulligans?

Man do I wish I could get this statement to sink in with some of my friends.

the four of us all hit a bad shot off the tee and decided we should all hit a mulligan.

If your ball was not in a hazard or out of bounds, you didn't make any score on the second ball because you didn't hole out the ball that was in play.

I'll tell you why this thread has REALLY got me annoyed.

It's one thing to have debates about how far we hit the ball and which putters are best - that's all good fun.

But here we have the game debased to the point where when the inevitable non golfer says "Have you ever had a hole in one?" the answer becomes "yes" , when in actual fact, the person hasn't even parred the damn hole.

And then to have the hide to say that "technically" it's not an ace as a sort of disclaimer, but claiming it nevertheless.

And who the hell plays mulligans   - especially after saying he was having a good day up until the 16th?  Why throw away your score by "technically" being a cheat?

No wonder the handicaps of so many people are regarded as a complete joke by those who actually play by the rules.

I disagree.  You can always just declare a ball unplayable and take the option of rehitting at a penalty of stroke and distance.  It was a legitimate par.

He didn't declare it unplayable. They all just hit another off the tee because they felt like it. You can be pretty sure that if he'd duffed iit he would have gone and played his original. Do you seriously think he would have said "shit! Now I'm lying three and my first ball is near the green!" The logic of his argument is that if you stand on the tee and hit a thousand balls and one goes in it's an ace. Pretty weird.

    • Everybody claims to hate slow play, so why is it I am always stuck behind people who think they are pros. It's quite well known that old people are slow players, but they are slow drivers, so why would anything be any different. I can understand new players being slow, because they have to hit the ball many times to get to the green. For me the worst are women. It's hilarious, just watch what they do. Men will take their shots and walk to their own ball, but women can't do that. They all walk around the course shoulder to shoulder and attend every shot. This means a four ball women's outing takes three times longer than a men's. After all, if they aren't together they have to stop talking, and that won't do. Don't believe me, just watch them ! 
    • Fitting is a good thing for sure. A bit overrated overall though. But for you specifically I think your time and money would be better spent with instruction. With a 30+ hcp you’ll get a pretty rapid improvement at first. You’ll probably make some significant changes to your current swing but nothing at this point that would be significantly affected by tweaking a standard set of steel, stiff shafts.
    • Day 92: Went to the driving range for a pretty bleh session. Really need to focus better next time.
    • Day 149 - May 26, 2020 Full swing work again. This is going to be almost everything that I do. Another interesting day. Went to the range at about 6:30. Fortunately the back end is in the shade. Started off hitting some half swing 7I. Did not go well. Had no feel for the swing, began searching. Hit some 8I. Chipped some drivers. Hit some wedges. More 7I. Almost none good. Some fine, but I knew they were not done "properly." Toward the end, found a feeling when I decided to hit some 5I. Not sure why… but I had the feeling and striped a bunch of 5I in a row. Left on a high note. But not before hitting a bunch of pitches and chips. Longer ones, 30-40 yards.
    • Is anyone experiencing any problems getting tee times at your club? My home club is doing 15-min intervals (used to be 7-mins) so the availability has been cut in half. Since reopening at the beginning of May, I have been having difficulties securing a tee time, both during the week and on the weekends. Weekends are especially bad when we get 90+ tee requests but the club only has 50 available.   It is very frustrating to have to stalk the tee sheet for cancellations...but lots of members just don’t show up or they block their slot to play as single/doubles, and my club is doing nothing about it...
