My second hole in one with Titleist Pro VIx. 138 yard at Hidden Falls Golf Course, Meadowlakes, TX. Not bad for a 66 year old duffer.
I was supposed to be home repainting the sun room, but my wife was out of town and the weather was nice, so played golf instead. Glad I did.
Didn’t play well, but got a hole-in-one on the third hole at Magellan Golf Course in Hot Springs Village. It is a par 3, slightly uphill, 140 yard hole, and there was a 10-15 mph headwind. Hit my 7-wood. The ball took off right at the pin with a slight draw. Ball hit the raised front edge of the green, bounced right and towards the pin, then disappeared behind the false front. Went up to the green and found ball in the cup. Didn’t actually see it roll in and the other guys were talking and not paying attention, so didn’t see it either, but they did find my Titlest NXT Tour ball in the cup.
I had a feeling that it went in, but didn’t say anything for fear of making a fool of myself if it had run way on past the hole.
It was a great day to play hooky and go to the golf course. Still playing hooky at 67 years of age. :-)
First time playing the course, got to 17th hole with 3 others and course marshal waiting for us to tee off. I was last to hit. Used a 7 iron for 131 yards, wind against, green surrounded by traps with a center pin location. Ball bounced once and kicked right, into the hole! Couldn't believe my eyes and I wasn't convinced until I saw the Pro V1x in the hole! Whoopie! Lots of high fives and then went on to birdie the signature 18th hole! Received a HIO certificate from the nice people at the course. My second career HIO.
In July of 2013, I purchased a new set of irons. For some unknown reason, you could not buy the attack wedge or L wedge as part of the set. The set I purchased, I special ordered with 115g shafts in them and I ordered separately the attack and L-wedge which came with 85g shafts.
By late Novemeber of 2013, I decided I needed to get the same shafts in the attack wedge and the L-wedge because I simply could not hit those 2 clubs and stopped using them. I bought the shafts online and my local pro put them in for me. On hole number 3 at my club, I used the attack wedge with the new shaft in it for the very first time on a Par 3 at 114 yards, a perfect distance for the attack wedge. The club felt heavier in my hand but also comfortable since that is the shaft weight of all my other clubs.
Hit a nice towering shot and said to myself that looks good but it might be long. Landed and boom jumped right into the cup for my first Ace. Sure glad I changed the shaft in that Attack wedge.
My first hole-in-one was so great! It was so unexpected and made my round so much better, it was astounding and I couldn't believe that I had done it on December 2, 2013. Such a cool accomplishment! I will never forget that shot, my reaction, my parents reaction, my fellow golfers reactions, and spectators reactions. It made my day! My total score of the day wasn't as good as I had hoped it would be, but making my hole-in-one made up for it big time. I hit my 8-iron on a 131 yd Par 3 at The Dominion Country Club in San Antonio, Texas and I was thinking that my shot was going to be really close to the hole. Right when I thought that my ball landed right behind the hole and quickly spun right into it. I couldn't believe it! It actually took me a few moments to realize my ball had fallen. Lots of people congratulated me and I was ecstatic. It was such a great moment.
Thank you Titleist for sending me such an awesome gift. It is greatly appreciated and I will forever carry it with me on my bag.
