Made my 3rd hole-in-one on 12-12-14 playing at Pecan Valley Hills Course #16 in Fort Worth TX. Witnessed by Lee Benson. Playing the Titleist Velocity golf ball.
This year at member member with my 16 yr old son as my partner. We played 16th hole at Tillery Tradition, a 235yd par 4. I was playing my usual pro v1 golf ball and I used my 20deg. Hybrid to hit off the tee. I picked a line over a green side bunker right side. I swung with great rythem and watched the ball fly over the trap, bounce once and disappear. We get close to green looking for ball and I notice group in front of us coming back towards our green? I told my son they must have forgot a club?? They were coming to see who hit that shot!! They saw it go in. I went cold all over and ran to see ball in hole. My first hole in one!I
After 44 years of playing this beloved game I finally got my hole in one. I probably play 35 to 50 rounds of golf a year and have come about as close as you can. I have been a 10 handicap for most of my life but never had an ace. Until now. I made it at Bent Creek in Jacksonville, second hole with a 7 iron. A couple of hops on the green and then in the HOLE! Finally!!
While on vacation in Arizona the wife and I decided to play Tegavah for our last day in Arizona. Teeing it up on the 290 yard par four, I made the great choice not lay up and to go for the green! Tee'ed up my ProV1 and let 'er rip. Hit a beautiful draw back to the center of the green. And the rest as they say, is history! And to boot, looking into the hole, the first thing I saw was that "Titleist" logo! Titleist for life!
Of course I hit ProV1 golf balls. There just is not another ball on the market that comes close to the quality, playability and distance of a ProV1. On the week of thanksgiving I was playing Brained Golf Course in Chattanooga TN. On the par 5 fourth hole I hit a good drive 260 in the fairway leaving 240 to the pin. Wind was blowing left to right 10 to 15 mph helping some. I hit a 3 wood and knew it was a good shot going straight at the stick, the ball hit 2 ft. from the pin bounced straight up and rode the flag into the hole for my first albatross of my golfing career. I asked for a ruling in the clubhouse. I know when you make a hole in one the player buys the drinks but who buys when you make a double eagle or albatross. the clubhouse ruled my playing partner and witness buys and it has a happy day for all.
