It Took 61 Years!

By: venaa1

Wow! I never thought I would get a hole in one! My brother, who had won a car with a hole in one, told me that it is 10% skill and 90% luck. I guess he's right... I have been close many times, but the thrill of actually finding the ball in the cup is like nothing else.

I was standing on a 147-yard par 3 at Hillcrest Country Club in Lincoln NE (Hole #8). It is a two-tiered green and the pin was back on the lower tier. Fortunately for me, it was early in the morning when the dew was still on the grass. I played a 5-Hybrid, hit the sweet spot, and thought, "Hey, I think that's going to be close. I could get an easy birdie out of this."

When I approached the green, I kept looking for the ball and said, "I can't believe it went over!" So, I searched all around the fringe and in back of the green....no ball... I decided to backtrack to the green and follow the dew trail. Lo and behold, it led right to the cup!!! I was stunned!

Thank you, Titleist, for your Pro V1. That ball is proudly on display in my office.

Sincerely,
Vena Alesio

My recent hole in one occurred during my clubs Member-Member Tournament. The unique part of the story was that it happened on the beat the pro hole. Our pro Ryan Owens hit the green about 20 feet away, then, our opponents both hit the green with George about 5 feet, my partner Ralph zings one on about 8 feet. Now it's my turn, I hit a high soft draw the landed just over the bunker, the ball kicked left and hit the flag, the ball was wedged between the flag and the hole. The clubs CEO and GM were also witnesses in addition to our pro and my group, very cool experience. When I straightened the flag the ball dropped to the bottom of the cup! This was my third career hole in one!

Slam Dunk from 190 Yards

By: rodl18

Hit the ball in the hole on the fly from 190 yards. When a golfer hits a bad shot, it's bad luck. But when a golfer gets a hole-in-one, it's skill. What do you call hitting a 1.5" diameter golf ball, on the fly, into a 4" hole from 190 yards? A HOLE-IN-ONE.
