I've been golfing for 12 years. Like most golfers, I've had several close calls on aces. Finally, on a 170 yard par 3, actually plays downhill, I took my 8 iron & made what felt like my best swing ever. The ball landed near the hole, bounced forward and spun back into the cup. I think my friends were more excited than I was. It was a long time coming. I'll never forget it.
