This morning I was not having a very good round. I was hitting most mid and short irons less distance than normal, so upon approaching the 140 yard Hole number 8, I pulled an 8 iron instead of the usual 9 iron.
Rarely second guessing my club selection (not one to make the game harder than it is!), I hit a less than average speed 8 iron that looked pretty good. While we did not see the ball go into the hole, I said out lout "Boys, that could be in the hole!"
Three of us are regular walkers, and the 70+ year old guy rides every week, so he got to the green first. By then we knew the ball was not on the green. I told Jack to go check it out. There it was! In the cup!!
Earlier this year I hit one two inches from the cup on the same hole (don't recall, but sure it was a normal 9 iron).
I think Jack was more excited about my first hole-in-one that me! And I am quite pleased!!
