A "1" on the score card has no details and other than not having anyone to attest the occurrence, it still is a great feeling. I've been in numerous groups playing and have seen great shots hole out. It's an instant rush of excitement like no other. Even watching an ace on TV brings that moment of excitement.

A One's a One, take it no matter how, they're few and far between.

Still, I've often heard there are no bad two's on a score card. :beer:

This^^

My second ace was a skulled 6 iron that kicked off a bank left of the green, hit the flagstick about 40 mph and dropped in.  I still count it.  While I did have witnesses (a married couple who I was paired with on the first tee), it was a casual round that didn't really mean anything aside from the ace.  I don't even remember the score from that round.

I take it ... the most disappointing is shanking your first shot into the lake ... teeing up and getting it in the hole from the 3 on tee ...thats the only time I have ever hit from the tee box and into the hole ... a good par.

I don't know if it was because of this thread, but I had a dream I had a hole in one last night!

Did you pure it?

My one and only occurred on an executive 9 hole course. 5 par 3's and 4 par 4's.  This hole is 120 yds and I hit a low shot that screamed forward about waist high, at the direction of the green.  It hit the mound in front and that is the last we ( myself and my playing partner) saw of the ball.  It was early November and there was a ton of leaves down and the green was covered.  We searched and had no luck finding it. I was prepared to go back and re tee. We then took a look in the hole and voila, the ball was there!

It is my hole and one story,  It is fairly unsatisfying other than the very fact of the luck it must have used up in going from a screamer heading for the river and me buying a beer for my partner and the owner..  But I never saw the beauty of a ball going in.

Nice high draw that missed the green but bounced off a side hill and rolled in. :-D

Yeah I'm just glad my only hole in one was on a good spot, hit it just past the hole and it spun back in.

There are several twists you could add here.  I was playing a hole on a course rarely open to the public and it had been raining off and on during our round. I was playing with some friends when I hit a shot and the heavens opened up.  It absolutely poured.  We went to the green to mark our balls as the horn blew.  I had plugged about a foot from the hole and I mean plugged!  I have lived wondering what ifs had this been a normal day of golf.  I have never had a hole in one and so ... 

(Note - Course was open to us since one of my friends won a round for 4 in a charity auction.  Also, we never finished that round.  It never worked out for all of us to go back even though they offered another date when we finished.)

My playing partner got an ace this year, and it was the first one I have witnessed. Good swing. Good ball. Bee lined right to the hole and dropped. His first one at age 73. You gotta take it when it happens when you can cuz you might never get one.

I have one too, also on a good shot.  If I ever get a second one playing alone or on a ball that rebounds off a sprinkler head, I won't feel bad at all.

 I have hit too many good shots that just missed going in. I certainly would take one that was mishit. They don't ask how, they are how many. In that case it is one. I have had three in my life and they all were hit on the nose and went right in with no weird bounce or ricochet off the pin. Many times I would see my ball go at the hole and then get to the green and see my ball mark just short of the hole and my ball behind the hole a half foot away or closer. Makes you wonder how it got by without going in. I hole in one is a good shot with a lot of very good luck.

    • I agree, I can feel it too.  But you get used to it pretty quickly and then you don’t even think of it.
    • What loft was he using on those heads?  The Flash is a low spin head, I forget what the TS2 is.  With an 85 mph clubhead speed I’d be as concerned about the head as I am the shaft.  The Flash also has the weights, how are those set up? FWIW my son is also small... older than your son but he is 5’even and 80lbs.  He hits a Ping G SFT 12 degree with a senior shaft.  Hits it about 225 yards with a tight little draw.  He has always had a draw anyway.    I didn’t mind getting him the SFT because he plays it at full length and the SFT feature would enable him hitting a draw with a shaft that’s too long so he would get some distance.
    • So I haven't been pleased with my putting lately.  It just seems like I have been fighting it on the backswing, and that is throwing me off. So I thought I would pull out a bunch of putters. like many people have and weigh them and see what the balance turned out to be.  This is not scientific since I am using a Taylormade Monza IB Spider as the baseline weight and using a digital scale.  I realize this only gives me overall static weight of the putter and not the head weight.  I'm just guessing at that since they all have small pistol grips.  The IB weighed 537gr and has a spec of 350gr headweight.  It has a slight toe balance. 1930's Burke 15oz, 90* toe balance (Found in my parent's garage as a kid and actually used it a long time ago because I thought it was cool). 1985 Taylormade TPA V 488gr 17-1/4oz, guess 300gr HW slight toe (First real putter that I used for a long time... Nevada Bob's). 1990's Teradrops TD-xx 504/508 17-3/4oz, guess 315/320gr HW slight toe (Drank the roll face kool-aid a few years ago, they do roll nice). 2008 Adams Mallet 523gr 18-1/2oz, guess 335gr HW face balance (Got this after wife took my IB, I loved this putter before Jim Jones got a hold of me... back in the bag). I have others, the 80's are around the same weight (slight toe, except one that is about 80*) and I have a Teardrop RFD that is "toe up" by 30* and is almost 19-1/2oz-360gr HW.  It is super stable... but boy I hate that one. I realize that my list is really low budget and most people wouldn't be caught dead with any of them.  But this was kind of an exercise in looking back at the years and also have some baseline for me.  I don't buy a lot, but I realize that I've picked up too much of the same that isn't working, at least for my current setup.

    • I get it.  But the bottom line is, that just because it’s on the cart path, the actual procedure doesn’t change at all from any other drop.  That’s why you’re not finding anything.  There’s no difference in the procedure at all.
