1st hole in one!!

17 posts in this topic

Sorry guys,maybe I shouldn't have started a new thread for this, I wasn't sure where to post it. For the last couple weeks the weather around here has been extremely cold, for South Carolina standards anyway, and I played 12 outta 14 days. Promised my wife I would slow down so I left my clubs at home Monday just so I would not even be tempted. Low and behold my boss comes up to me Monday morning and says, if you played in that mess over the weekend, I know you are playing today, its supposed to be 60 degrees this afternoon. I told him  I left my clubs at home just so I would not be tempted. He then said, well go home at lunch and get em' , were teeing off at 2:30.  What's a man to do, at lunch I went home and told my wife ''the boss man said''. The round started O.K. I had a couple errant tee shots and after a bogy on 7 I thought I can par out and shoot 40 on this side. #8 is a 144yd par 3 over water that was playing 134. While we waited on the green to clear, my bosses buddy says '' I've never had a hole in one'' ,( he's only been playing for a year), I said ''well most folks haven't, I've never even seen one''. I pulled gap wedge and flushed it, it was high and going right at the pin, of course I said ''just go in the hole''. There was a little noise and the ball just disappeared, It landed straight in the hole, a slam dunk. I went crazy, not sure why I ran and did a Pete Rose slide across the gold tee box, just felt like the thing to do at the time. The guys in front of us had to think '' somebody just canned one''.  Im not sure how a ball can stay in the hole like that, but Im glad it did. Ended up shooting 39- 41. My wife said exactly what I thought she would, ''that's exactly what you needed to do, to help you cut back on playing golf". Proud to report I have'nt played in 2 days. LOL it's been snowing.

Called my dad to tell him about it. That's pretty much what he said.

Really nice. Especially the slam dunk part of it. Don't think that happens too often, ever.

Also, does your boss need another employee? :-D

Congrats!

I've been playing for about 12 years and never had one. I've had 3 within 2 inches of going in but never had one. I've also witnessed 3 from people playing in my group. I've also holed out twice from outside 150 yards, but both have been on approach shots.

Crazy story. The third time my wife ever played golf was on a Par 3 course at a resort in Florida. She is not very good, but she bladed an iron shot and hit a worm burner that skidded along the fairway towards this short 80 yard par 3. Wouldn't you know it, the ball slams into the pin and drops! Her 3rd time ever golfing and she holes out for an ace. I went ballistic, and she just got mildly excited. As we were walking up there, I was still mumbling in disbelief and she says "Well that's where I was aiming."

Thanks for all the replies. Visited the scene of the crime today and kinda re-lived the moment for a minute. Tee's and pin were in similar locations, hit same club, drew a lil to much, ended up 15' pin high, made par.

That's awesome man! If the day ever comes for me I will probably yell so loud everyone on the course knows somebody knocked one in haha. I let the people in front and behind me know today when I sunk a 54 footer for birdie!

    • A run of the mill slice is something I can actually live with (though it'll be an annoying existence).  A push slice is probably the most off line I ever get with a shot (even more than a shank due to distance) as it starts right and goes further right.  Luckily those are so rare that when they do pop up they usually aren't in a spot where it causes me trouble.
    • The point that I was specifically responding to was, just because you're on top of another group, it still may be appropriate to allow others through.  Just because @No Mulligans hadn't experienced it, didn't mean that the concept was moot by any means... And fwiw, our relatively fast group has allowed 5-somes through....
    • These guys haven't gotten to where they are without being ultra-competitive.  I don't think the lack of money had any real effect on their desire to win.
    • The slice is just such a devastating miss for your game. It is a shot that I really have to eliminate from my game. I am an incredibly inconsistent player, to the point where I can be hitting a beautiful high fade and start to go pin hunting for several holes, having several looks at birdie in a row and then within the next several holes be almost unable to hit the ball without hitting a horrendous slice. I am so inconsistent that it is not abnormal for me to go something like par, birdie, par, birdie, par, quad, quad, quad in an eight hole stretch.
    • I recently won some pro shop credit ($100) at a semi-private course nearby.  Thing is, I need to use it before November or it expires. I don't really need any clothes or accessories so I was thinking I might put it towards a new driver.  The problem is, while I'm sure I can test it out on the range, they just have regular old range balls and I'm doubtful there's any kind of fitting process.  I also can't really play a round there with a demo club unless I'm someone's guest or I'm willing to shell out $100+ to play off-peak times (which I'm not).  There's a decent golf shop down the road from the course that offers fittings for $75/hour, with a $50 credit toward a related purchase within 30 days.  I've never had a proper fitting, so would it make sense to go to the golf shop, get fit, assume I'll probably get a custom shaft, go buy the same driver at the pro shop using my credit, and then buy the shaft from the golf store, applying the fitting credit?  When you get fit and end up with a custom shaft, is the shaft price usually totally on top of the full price of the off-the-rack driver, or is there typically a discount since you're not getting the OEM shaft? Obviously different stores do things differently, but I'm just wondering what is common practice. I'm trying not to overthink it but I also don't want to waste my pro shop credit. Any advice would be much appreciated!
