Playing Blackstone Golf course in Mossy Head Fl. slightly down hill with back right pin. I hit a beautiful draw with an 8 iron that landed about 1 1/2 feet short of the hole on a down slope and vanished. I looked at my playing partners and asked if it went in and after confirmation it was the most exciting moment I have had in my 3 years of playing.
This was my 4th hole-in-one, 3rd in the last 4 seasons. This one was special to me as it occurred on my 75th birthday. Unfortunately, I had a couple of double bogies that day so missed shooting my age that day by two strokes.
I confess that I once tried doing a rough calculation of the number of attempts I was likely to have to actually have a hole in one . . . but I swear it was the last thing on my mind as I stepped up to the tee at the 6th at La Bretesche, a course in France I was playing with my best man of many years ago. Both he and I play left handed, and I (on a brief holiday from my home in North Carolina) was using rental clubs (it's a great course, built around an old castle, but the rental sticks are mediocre at best). Well, he suggested I give his trusty 5 wood a try, and I hit a smooth one . . . on a line toward the right center of the green, over 200 yards away and slightly uphill. The ball hit just short, rolled up, bent left . .and then we couldn't see much. My old friend noted that "it must be close" (and I felt the litle ker-pluf as my heartrate kicked up). . . . .but we know that these things don't ever really happen . .right? Well, we walked uphill (mostly people use pull-carts, rarely motorized golf carts) . .and as we got closer . . we STILL didn't see the ball. Th heart rate increased. It was if a motorboat was buzzing in my chest. Now, it's not likely that any 5 wood that I would ever hit could run through a green that was 200+ yards away . . . and so, as I headed across the green I actually felt good enough to begin pulling out my camera phone. Sure enough . . that "Titleist 1" logo and number were looking up at me, in all their glory. (And, since we were on a public course with no others we knew, we didn't feel compelled to buy everyone a drink . . but was that Champagne ever good that night! J Phelps Charlotte, NC
The hole was over a lake, so no one saw it go in. It appeared to be a good shot so I expected it to be fairly close to the pin. As we approached the green, my ball was not visible on the green. This area of the green is very narrow & I have often seen balls go over & roll into the hazard on the other side. I was not a happy camper as I walked up onto the green. I was grumbling about my misfortune as I walked by the pin & I looked into the hole "just in case" it had gone in. Sure enough I was pleasantly surprised. After the rest of the group had putted out, I was pleasantly surprised again as my hole in one was worth 9 skins. What a great day!!!!!!!!!!!
