Close, but no cigar. Been playing off and on since I was a kid and seriously for about 10+ years (with a few years of break in there...kids/life).

The closest I've ever come was from ~130 a couple months ago...

I have been close several times such as behind the cup an inch and just in front needing one more rotation but ZERO for me. Holed out twice from the fairway(one was fairway bunker) but no ACE's for me yet.

The announcers on PGATourLive said Sergio hit only his third career hole in one yesterday at TPC.  Given he basically plays 4 rounds a week most weeks for the last 20 years it shows they are pretty rare.

They are probably talking in Professional tournament play. I'll bet he has too many to count if you count everyone he has ever had playing casual and practice rounds.

3 now, in something like 48 years old playing.  More details tomorrow, when I sober up. Maybe Monday

So far I'm 0 for 51! Oddly enough I've jarred approach shots on par 4's for Eagles several times, but never had an actual hole in one on a par 3.

Zero aces, but then again I've only been playing the game for about 45+ years.
Maybe this is the year :~(

You must be a Lions fan!

 

 

0 but I've been close.   Treetops par 3 course, number 9 to within about 3".     I'm patient!

So Saturday I'm playing in an interclub match at nearby Hidden Creek CC, on a chilly wet morning.  My partner and I are getting beat pretty bad, based on both some excellent short game stuff from our opponents, and our own inability to adjust to the recently aerified greens.   We started playing better on the back, staying close to even.  On 17, playing about 195 yards, I hit a nice looking shot with my hybrid, drawing gently towards the hole.  We saw one bounce, and then nothing, it disappeared.  Yup, it went in.  Our opponents were probably more excited than I was, they'd never seen an ace before that.

Congrats Dave!  Save some for the Newport Cup, will ya?

Congrats Dave. I'd like to think this thread helped you visualize!

    • I don’t drink enough to get hungover anymore. The last time I got drunk was at my father’s house of all places. My brother opened up a winery and we tested his new wines. 1+ liters later and I couldn’t really tell what anything tasted like much less if I was still drinking wine or not?🤪 Next day, I expected a terrible hangover, but my brother’s wine was smooth enough that all I felt was a bit dehydrated. Played a round of golf after hydrating myself with 2 to 3 liters of water in the morning. My dad and brother slept in really late. Finished a 5 hour round and still got back before they woke up. Played my usual horrible game...
    • I have an over-fondness for beer and have made some efforts to cut down the heavy nights in recent years. As a hacker of the first order, it used to be hard to tell if it really made any difference. Now, that I'm marginally further along, it is very clear that it hurts. My precarious sense of balance really goes to hell when I'm hung over. If golf is in the plan the next morning, my limit is 3 beers. If it's any sort of competition, I'll try to make it none.
    • Don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time....  
    • Golf - Find time here and there to practice/play on the sim. - Consistently start the ball a couple of degrees to the right.  My stock shot is the draw, but I can get a little steep and pull draw it.  Shorter clubs miss greens and go too far and the long clubs don't stay airborne when I pull draw it.   - I pretty much have my carry yardages and typical misses, but I'd like to go through the process of making my shot eggs like in LSW.   - Hope to maintain average ball speeds with these clubs as a way to monitor my striking: driver at 155 mph, 3w 148, 2i at 135, 4i at 133, 5i at 129, 6i at 125, 7i at 120, 8i at 115, 9i at 109, PW at 103. - STOP HITTING DRIVER OUT OF THE HEEL.  I think I'm swinging out a bit and my arms run away from me trying to that Rory draw with upward AoA and push draw, resulting in a heel hit.  Going to try addressing a farther away tee and hitting the inside tee peg or feel like I'm hitting the toe to remedy this.  This really only happens with my woods, but it's worse with driver than 3w.   Fitness - Continue my great progress from the past year.  This year, however, I'm focusing on losing some body fat by eating properly.  I like to eat.  A LOT.  I'd like to get down to about 200 lbs. - Modified 531 program: M- barbell row, deadlift, bench press, pull-up variations (each @ 7 reps/60% training max, this is one circuit, do this 3x).  THEN, deadlift 531 protocol.   T- power clean, overhead press, squat, pull-variations (same as above).  Then, overhead press 531 protocol.  Then superspeed. W- bb row, dl, bp, pu (same).  Then, bp 531.   R- pc, op, sq, pu (same).  Then sq 531.  Then superspeed F- off Sat- 531 row, 531 pc, superspeed. - Hope to add at least 75 lbs to dl and sq this year. - Superspeed training.  I'd like to hit a PR of 140 mph with the green stick.  Normal swing.
