First Hole In One 52 years of trying

By: guym15

After 52 years of being a student of golf, made a hole in one today! The Grande in Jackson,MI #2 , 158 yards, 6 iron...... Witnessed by Bill Meyers, Ryan & Lance Cadmus! Wasn't worth a darn the rest of the way after that... Thought I was going to play well, but after the ball disappeared, it was tough.....Hit a shot towards the flag, it hit pretty close, I guess about 3-4' from the hole, hopped once, then all of a sudden it was gone... if you would have told me before we went today that this would happen, I doubt I would have believed it.......Been trying for so long, didn't know that I would ever make one. Guess I did realize the last couple years that it would be helpful to actually hit a shot onto the green on a par 3 hole...
I have played Titleist Pro V 1X for a long time, best ball around.
I was glad to have my buddies be able to see it with me, been playing with Bill for over 40 years, that's a lot of shots.......

Second time as good as the first

By: miket178

Playing with the group I usually do...perfect fall day. Money game...aren't they all?

A warm but windy dayat Sand Ridge GC in Chardon, OH. Number 17, 202 yrds into the wind today. When the ball left the club, we all knew it had a chance...great that the usual guys could be there to watch it!

Dave, Seth, Eric...yours will come! David...keep calling them from each and every par3!

Not that I needed a reason to keep playing Prov1x ball, but this will solidify it!

First Hole in One

By: richb56


On Friday September 19, 2014 I scored my first hole in one on the number four par three at The Country Club of Lansing, MI. The hole was playing 169 yards and I used a six iron, it was high shot with a slight fade it took two bounces and rolled in the hole. I had three witnesses who were all amazed and excited. Are foursome ended up winning the event we were playing, so it was the perfect afternoon.

My First Hole in One

By: jackr80

Walking up to the 9th tee of the Pasfield Golf Course, I was not feeling all that great. I just took a double bogey on the hole before after hitting my 3rd shot into the woods. The only thing I was hoping for was to get the ball on the green to finish with a par. The person that teamed up with me also had the same feeling.
As we stepped up to the tee box, I took out my range finder and got a distance of 133 to the green. I was hitting my irons well today, so I took out my sand wedge. My partner shot first and put his ball short and to the right.
When I took my shot, I hit it high into the sky. As I watched it, I remember thinking, "This will end up nice if its got the distance". All of a sudden my partner yells, "Get in the hole!!" My ball lands short left of the green. It bounces once and lands on the edge of the green. Next thing I know the ball is rolling to the hole. When we see it disappear, I ended up hugging and screaming in joy with the golf buddy that joined up with me on hole 8.
We drove up to the green and took a picture of me grabbing my golf ball out of the hole. I could not resist sending this picture to all my friends and family showing them my accomplishment. Now I just hope I can do this again someday.
