I was playing my worst round of the summer and coming off a 49 on the front nine and a double bogey on number 10 at The Home Course in DuPont, Washington. One of the guys I was playing with described the short par four 301 yard 11th by saying there’s no point laying up because golf isn’t fun if you don’t just go for it. This gentlemen had the honors and proceeded to shank his drive OB and said he wanted to hit another. He had to go back to his cart to retrieve another ball so I figured I would hit real quick before he came back.
I pulled out a Pro-V1 from my bag. I teed it up, skipped the practice swing, and swung as hard as I could. The ball was true from the beginning, it cleared the 285 yard bunker guarding the green, bounced twice and disappeared.
I said to my friends, “that either just went in or rolled off the back”. I refused to get too excited and say anything else until driving up and looking in the hole. Sure enough, I accomplished a lifetime bucket-list item in the best possible way with a hole in one on a par 4!
I will forever appreciate Titelist balls for what they are: the best!
