Happy New Years Eve Ace LUCKY 8

By: ianh54

I guess the lesson here is; Always play a #8 Ball like Freddy C. They are truly more aerodynamic in the end.....Well it worked for me

Ball: Titleist ProV1 High-Number #8
Club: Titleist 1997 Tour-Model Blade Pitch Wedge
Hole: 115 Yards
Location: Studio City, California
Conditions: 80 and Sunny, no wind

Walking up the 2nd fairway on our par-3 New Years Eve morning round, one of my partners told me that I "deserved" a hole-in-one...Ha.

Of course I laughed it off. But Mark is no slouch himself. A Hole-in-One Club member, he got his one ACE right here on these hallowed grounds...The Executive Par-3 Golfing Park known in LA as "Whitsett".

The par-3 Fifth at Weddington Golf and Tennis is an absolute treat for any golfer. Its an inviting little 115 birdie-look that frames up nicely for a draw. The greens are set up to really HOLD executive wedge-shot approaches; and make the player look and feel like...well, a MAN.

I had been spinning the ball off of almost every green this morning and the day before. But I was really hunting flags out there this morning, my tee shots were getting close.

I choked down on my 1997 Titleist Tour Model Blade PW and made a compact easy swing, drawing it in nicely for a 120 yard carry.

The combination of the matt tee-box and the soft cover on that #8 ProV1 jerked that sucker back about 15 feet right into the cup, PGA-style.......while the four of us watched in amazement.

I don't think I can hit it any better. Thats a rare feeling in golf.

These classic blades and this ProV1 ball are just un-beatable....unless you can beat a 1.

Needless to say; I will be playing your Titleist high-number 8 flagship ball for luck the rest of my golfing career. Incredible work, gentleman.

Straight In The Cup

By: done20

Hi, I'm 72 years old and have been golfing 47 years. I have always wanted a hole in one. I wanted to be golfing with my wife, Barb and my golfing friends, David and Martha Lill. We all were golfing yesterday when I hit a 7 iron and David said, man that is going right at the cup. The ball hit the cup and we it stayed in the cup...air born! It was a delight and a wonderful memory!

Firs Hole In One

I have been golfing for 6 years & have used Titleist since I hit my first drive. Although I say 6 years, I have probably crammed 15 years into 6. See, I play between 320-340 rounds per year. I have come from a 33 handicap the first year to a 9 handicap now. Golf is my passion & to finally get a hole in one is one of the best highlights of my life so far. Thanks Titleist for making a ball(NXT) that suits me & helped me get my hole in one.

2nd ace

By: fordm1

I was playing with my brother, and hit a 9 to a slightly uphill green at 131 yards. The green is across a gully with a small pond at the bottom, and the hole's protection is the dramatic upslope to the green surface coming up from the pond. My ball hit about a foot and a half to the right of the pin with a slight draw and the spin pulled it in. The group immediately in front of us had a good friend in it and he heard us whooping and hollering but didn't see the shot. We have a playing group, the Dogfight, with a hole in one insurance program. The problem was that to qualify for the insurance payout you must be playing either in the Dogfight or with a Dogfight member, and this one wouldn't qualify, as my brother isn't a Dogfight member and my friend didn't witness the shot.

All I could think about was the thrill of the ace but then it dawned on me that my bar bill was going to be huge. On getting back to the clubhouse I was very relieved to find that the bar had closed and most golfers gone home, it being late on a Sunday afternoon. The bar closing was the second great thing that happened to me at the course that day!
