Like you, I've completely neglected putting practice for a long time, but recently (since completing AimPoint Express) I've been working on it a bit. I actually practice at a facility that has synthetic greens. They're decent quality, but still nothing like the actual greens I'd play on a course. However, I can still work on my Aimpoint reads and on my speed control (overall consistency, not specific swing length for each putt distance).
So I got my first ever hole in one the other day. A PW on a short par 3, about 115. Never thought it would happen, ended up 2 over for the 9 holes. Not another feeling quite like it. It's been a picture perfect week for golf in the northeast. Any other aces recently?
Our home course is Oak Brook Golf Club north east of Edwardsville. Edwardsville, Metro Lutheran, and Triad play there as their home course. The tournament that I mentioned previously in this thread is in Lebanon. It is the course for McKendree University.
I had to log on as soon as I got home for this update. My #1 had her second Hole In One as a Knight tonight. She used a pitching wedge on the 128 yard Par 3 Hole 26. I have been able to see both. She was given her plaque tonight since the Owner/Club Pro was there as well. It was really exciting.
