Only been golfing 2 years now and today I hit my first hole in one today, 168 yd par3..... but I didn't see it go in. I lost it in flight but my son saw it and yelled Dad "Hole in one!".  How about you guys.... how many aces?

0... but I ALMOST got an Eagle the other day (par 5). Got to the edge of the green in 2, chipped it, and it bounced off the flag right at the base (would have gone in had the flag been gone). I was ecstatic just to get that. I might hurt someone out of joy if I got a hole in one.

Congrats! That's a huge deal!

Congratulations, buddy!

I've been playing golf for about 10 years now and I still haven't found the elusive ace. I've come within mere inches a few times, but I've never dropped one. Enjoy that! It will be a memory you'll cherish forever. Especially since your son was there to witness it.

Nice job, RB! Like most, I have yet to hit a hole-in-one.  I'm convinced that if/when it does happen it will be when I'm playing alone and no one will believe me.

Two. Didn't see either. Went 34 years and estimated 14,000 par 3's before I got the first.......Many, Many very close ones.

Two Years!? I have been playing for over 15 years, the last 6 as a scratch player and I still don't have a hole in one! I can't complain, my father played for 30 years without one, and he was a scratch player as well. He did end up finally getting one, in fact he had 3 in six months!

I've had 2... the first one in my club championship in August 1989, the second was the next May in a casual round.  None in the 21 years since.

Does anyone remember the public relations statement put out by Kim Jong Il of North Korea a couple of years ago?

It stated he played golf for the first time and got something like 9 or 11 holes in one.

Funny.

Congrats man! I'm still awaiting my first one...but actually I almost had one today-twice! First Par 3 was Hole #3 and I stuck it 10 inches away! Second Par 3 was Hole #7 and I hit it right at the pin but it was like 3 feet short...ugh! Can't wait til I finally get one! I'm becoming impatient haha.
