Had my third with 4 friends there who enjoyed to see it.
A perfect February Saturday morning in Myrtle Beach, SC clear blue skies, light wind and about 55 degrees, just the weather we expected. The 6th hole yardage is 135 to the middle of the green but today the pin was up 9.5 yards. Considering a light wind at my back I chose my pitching wedge and hit it on the nose and we all watched as the ball landed in front of the pin and gently rolled a few feet until the ball disappeared. "Did that go in?" someone asked, and when we got to the green sure enough it had. Well my opponent made his birdie putt and lost the hole. All the players in the group signed the ball and it will soon be mounted with the scorecard. The best part of the story is that my son had given me a box Titleist Pro V 1 golf balls for Christmas and it was one of the balls that I used for the hole in 1. Priceless
Playing with my usual foursome on a Tuesday afternoon I can not describe the feeling I got when my buddies and I watched the ball fly over 125 yards of water, hit the green, roll out and disappear. The celebration on the tee box was one of the top moments of my life and I will never forget it. Thank you titleist for making such a great product!
Playing Black Bear GC with my two brothers-in-law and their friend. Hole 13 was 142yd par 3. Selected a 7 iron but with the wind, it was too much club. Teed up two club lengths behind tee blocks. Hit a nice little draw that hit about two feet in front of pin and rolled right into the cup!!! Made my day!
Started playing golf in 1960...been close many times, but this was my first.
Took my 3 sons to Eagle Haven Golf Course on Saturday 22 Feb 2014. It was my middle son's Eric's birthday. All 3 boys were beating me pretty badly. My oldest son Ryan had just eagled the 14th par 4 fom 89 yards out. Myself and Eric were now down 2 on a 2.00 Nassau (Ryan and my youngest Tyler were teamed up). Dad goes to the white tees on number 15 a 153 yard par 3 island green, stripes a 6 iron into the wind and BAM! hits 3 yards from the flag and looks like it rolls up close. When we got to the green, the ball was trapped between the sick and the hole, half the ball under the plane of the lip. Pull flag....Dad and Eric down 1 on the bet up 1 on the press. Hitting a Velocity # 22. Not a great round scoring, but a great experience for the boys seeing the "old man" ace no. 15!
On February 16th, I thought I would work on my short game during the late afternoon at my local par-3 course. I was on the 5th hole and there are bunkers to the right and left of the hole, and a very short hole as well (96 yards).
Placed the ball down, and began my regular routine of standing behind the ball and lining up where I wanted the ball to go, took a practice swing, and lined up to the golf ball. The swing felt good and also sounded good off the face as I heard the ball fizzing. The sun was in my eyes, but I could see the ball land onto the green. As I walk up to the hole, the ball was no where to be found, I initially thought the ball went toward the back of the green since it slopes down. I look around the rough, and no where to be found. I'm thinking to myself it couldn't have gone too far since I only used my gap wedge, so I look into the hole and my there's my ProV1x!
Definitely made my weekend since I was just there to work on my short game and all to prepare for an upcoming tournament, but didn't expect a hole in one!
