My Only Hole in One

The shot felt perfect off the face and I knew it would carry the water. The pin was back - on a slight incline. The ball was tracking so I look down to get my tee. As I picked up the tee, the group on the next tee let out a yell so loud I thought something had happened. "Fabulous", "Wow", "That was super". All loud! I really thought something had happened until my playing partners (Playing in the Senior Gaggle) let out a similar yell, and I looked back and didn't see the ball. I knew it was in.
Went to the green, pulled the ball out and deemed it out of play. Recorded the data and called my wife to tell her of my wonderful news. About then others in our groups started coming up and one of the Ass't pro's who was on the course and offered congrats "and don't forget you are buying after the round".
By the way - the next hole is a long uphill par five. I was so excited I took a 7. Still had an 82 that day - one of my better rounds and my team won for the day.
All's great that ends well!!!!!!!!
