THE COLONY GOLF AND COUNTRY CLUB HOLE 4

Posted: February 25, 2012
I was invited to play in an event at The Colony on 2/8/2012...at High Noon. When I arrive I find out I am in the cart with the very nice Pro, Craig, and a lovely couple from Toronto.
Our group started on Hole # 4 - Par 3 ...over water...alligators reside here...to a challenging, deep well bunkered green! Craig hits a very fine Pro shot ... We have a good look at birdie. The gentleman from Toronto swings, and his club head flies off into alligator heaven! Goodbye Iron head!
Debra steps up to the tee...balmy significant wind in my face...Put my pitching wedge back, and pull out my 9 iron. I rarely warm up, so this is the first swing of the day, not even a practice swing. So I decided a smooth (85 %) swing would work well. Just find the front of the down sloping green with the challenging pin placement in front, and don't spin it back off the green....into alligator heaven!
OK NOW...GOOD SWING....I WATCH IT LONG ENOUGH TO SEE IT RISE INTO THE BLINDING SUNLIGHT... AND BEGIN TO WATCH IT'S GRACEFUL DESCENT SO I WILL HOPEFULLY INSURE BIRDIE FOR THE TEAM!
CRAIG SAYS....GREAT SHOT....IT HIT ABOUT 3 FEET IN FRONT OF THE PIN....ROLLS SLOWLY TO THE PIN....HE SHOUTS ....DEBRA....
HOLE IN ONE!
WE ALL WALK OVER THE BRIDGE, APPROACH THE PIN, AND LOOK DOWN TO SEE MY
PRO V1 # 2 WITH MY SIGNATURE BLACK DOT AT THE BOTTOM OF THE CUP! ...PURE JOY! ... I REACH DOWN INTO THE CUP AND PULL UP MY PRO V1 WHICH LOOKS PERFECT BECAUSE IT WAS THE FIRST SWING OF THE DAY!
I WALK BACK TO THE CART WHERE MY TITLEIST RED, WHITE & BLUE BAG HOLDS MY TITLEIST 804 FORGED IRONS, TITLEIST 902 D2 DRIVER, TITLEIST 980 FAIRWAY 15, 19, & 23, TITLEIST VOKEY 52 & 58 WEDGES! HAVE I MENTIONED THAT I LOVE MY SELECTION OF CLUBS!
