Played in the mid-week club comp today and one of our better players, off scratch, had a hole in one on the par 4 fourth, which was playing 312 meters (341 yards) to the stick. (The greens staff went back and lasered it afterward.) It's OB right and the wind was behind and from the left quarter, so he hit a smoking cut off the big gum tree protecting the left side. Thought the drive might possibly have made the green but couldn't see it. Checked the left greenside bunker, then went back to see if it tied up in the rough around the tree. Was busy angrily poking the shrubs around the green when the rest of the group went to putt out and the flag tender found his ball in the hole.

Debate now is about how to properly commemorate this mighty blow. The club has very nice wooden boards on the tees of all the par threes with engraved brass plates recording aces. Seems a waste to put one up here, since it'll only ever have one name. But maybe that's the point? Visitors will stand on that box in perpetuity, going: "No ****ing way!"

Wow!!  I vote for the plaque on the tee!  Not a waste at all IMO.  I would want my name being the only one.

You need to play a bit more. I am sure in the next 1000 rounds or so you will get one.

That's spectacular. :-) Another vote for putting his name on the tee. (Although it'll make every double bogey on that hole afterward look even more shameful. :-D )

I just came from my old club (where I now just go to hit practice balls) and they have a hole in one honour board in the clubhouse that includes albatross. There are 2 names recorded as having an albatross on the par 4 6th.

C'mon, seems pretty obvious to me.



Haha!!   That's the exact thing that went through my mind when I read that

I'd be happy just getting an ace on a par 3. Better order that 48" Cobra driver if I want to reach those par 4s.

    • Day 443: Did some backswing/takeaway drills (COVID-19 day-3 and something I found on AMG YouTube). Then some COVID-19 day-5 drills. Then some full swing balls with 9-iron and 3-hybrid.
    • Thanks for your reply. To elaborate  I use the GPS on the watch to conserve the iPhone battery. What I don’t understand is why it only used 1% on Friday but 21% today with the same settings.  When I raise my wrist to look at the watch, the grint is nearly always open, when  I used Golfshot it was always on the home screen with similar settings.  I had to keep pressing the button on the watch to get back to golfshot. 
    • I’ve used Golfshot in the past. 18Birdies has a watch app that I used a couple times.  GameGolf has one. There are others, I’m sure.  I currently use the watch app for Arccos, because I use that tracking system. Not sure about the “disappeared off the watch” problem.  I don’t recall doing anything special for setup, but whenever I raise my wrist with a round going, it’s got my yardage right there (Arccos and Golfshot for sure, I think it did with GameGolf, don’t remember with 18Birdies). Maybe try (in the Apple Watch app on the iPhone): General > wake screen > wake on wrist raise (and) Return to clock after 1 hour.  I don’t know of a way to improve battery life in the watch, but I usually put my iPhone in low power mode when I play, and that helps prolong the iPhone battery without adversely affecting the golf app function.  But using 21% of battery for a round doesn’t seem excessive (meaning you finished the round with 79% left).
    • Just finished LSW, great info.  Now I just need to apply it so I can claim a few achievements for actually shooting lower scores.
    • Work, life & rereading some chapters 3 times slowed down my reading of LSW but I did finish it tonight.  I think it merits more reads as the season progresses since some aspects can’t be practiced with snow on the ground.  I need to work out my shot zones and need to figure out how to do that.  I do not know a range where I can walk out to my target to plot them as suggested.  I am wondering if it can be done with TrackMan Range? Or if a fellow Michigander can suggest a place it would be appreciated. One thing caught me by surprise, I’ve read many comments about shot cones and expected to read about them in LSW, but I did not.  I’ll look back on Threads to see where I saw that and what they are. My main question is for myself, why did I wait nearly 9 months after joining TST to order the book.
