My first ace!

8 posts in this topic

After nearly 20 years and approximately 15 bagillion strokes, I had my first hole-in-one Saturday. And I didn't even see it go in. 120 yd downhill over water, I hit gap wedge. It bounced about 7' short and rolled to the lip, where it stopped. It was a tournament so there were a lot of people on the tee box and everyone groaned when it stopped. I turned around in disgust, and of course that's when it dropped.

Lots of people there, did it cost you a lot at the bar afterwards?   I've never had one......that's a bar bill I'll GLADLY pay!

Fortunately it was a "closest to the pin" hole so I won a few hundred bucks so I about broke even on the bar tab. It was definitely cool having 15 or so people all see it happen. I felt like a real pro lol.

Now that's the best of both worlds! :-)

Congrats, reminds me of that guy who was qualifying for the US open at Olympic, were the putt came up on the lip short. He turns away and it drops.

I heard a story the other day while playing.  A guy I was playing with hit his first hole in one on a closest to the pin hole, he marks it, puts it right next to the hole and writes on the distance thing "hole in one"

He goes back to the course the next day to collect his prize and the guy says, you didn't win.  He asks why and the kid behind the counter says, your name isn't the last one on the list.

So he speculated what happened was one of the groups after saw that it was a hole in one, and removed the thing from the course, and placed it on the side of the green.  A group after that must have thought, oh nobody is on the green yet, and put it on, wrote his name below and was oblivious to the fact that somebody had a hole in one.
