15yr old ShaeBug Scarberry had her 1st hole in one while playing a practice round for the WOGA Girls Junior Championship at Southern Hills CC. It was on Hole #6, a 112yd Par 3, using a Titleist Pro V1 #2, with a R11.
I am 64 years old and I have been playing for over 50 years. I did not take lessons until I retired a couple years ago. Last week I had a lesson with a new instructor, Ryan, later that same day I played Tijeras Creek with my buddy Dennis. On the 5th hole Dennis hit first and he suggested I change from the 8 iron in my hand to a 7 iron. I took his suggestion and the rest is history. Thank you Dennis and Ryan !
I really don't know how unusual it is to hit a hole in one I have not been playing golf for too long, just three years. The hole was 221 yards long so I could not see it actually going into the hole from the tee box. I knew I hit it straight and I knew it bounced before the hole. I was playing golf in a foursome and as we walked towards the hole, we could not see my ball anywhere. One person said, "well maybe you hit it over the green". I said, "no I didn't hit it that long and I know I hit it straight towards the pin, so I think it might be in the hole". So we all walked to the hole together, where sure enough, the ball was resting comfortably in the bottom of the hole. Once we saw that we all started hooting and hollering. It was fun.
After playing 18 holes in an A-Team match my partner and I wanted to play an emergency 3 holes.
We started on hole 10 at about 7:00 o'clock pm. We got to number 11 and I has 181 to the flag, threw a ball down and hit a high draw. The pin was on the right side of the green and the ball landed about 3 feet right and a little past the hole with left spin. The ball then started to track towards the hole and fell in the back of the cup.
We had to play 18 holes before dark that day and made it coming in by the clubhouse lights. The ball was a Titleist 1 which has seen its last active day on the course.
My first hole in one after almost two years of playing. It couldn't be one those short par 3s. Nooo, that would be way to easy... LOL 154 Par 3, AP2 714 7 Iron, Pro V1X. Dropped it right in back of the hole, one small hop back and into the cup she went. God I love this game!
22 of our friends got together for a yearly outing. This was our first time my husband and I attended as it finally fit into our schedule. I had the hole-in-one on Friday, the day we arrived. My thunder was short-lived as 2 men in our group both had one on Saturday. We truly wonder what the odds are that 3 out of 22 got a hole-in-one the same weekend. They have been having this outing for years and only one person had one previously on this particular get-together and that was in 2009. I think we will all remember this weekend whether we were one of the 3 or one of the people that got to watch them fall.
