Hole-in-one stories

Caleb Hunt My Hole In One

My Hole in one? it was an awesome experience while at the same time a very surprising experience. I was teeing off on the par 3 6th at Flagg Springs Golf Course playing a practice round. i was looking for a way to bounce back after a bogey on the difficult par 5, 5th. I teed off using a pitching wedge from what the scorecard said was 138. But the green was higher level than the tee box and the wind was to my back. i was hitting the ball great that day so I wanted to hit a solid pitching wedge.. and apparently it worked out! there was a grounds crewman mowing the rough around the green, and I know its not polite to hit while their mowing around greens, but he ended up being the most important part to my story. I thought I hit my shot solid. but not enough to get to the hole. as I walk to the green he turns off his mower and sits there with his arms crossed as I make my way up the hill. what i thought was going to be a comment as to why I was hitting towards him while he was mowing, ended coming out as "Young Man, Congratulations." "congratulations on what? almost Killing you?" I thought. but as he finished his sentence he walked me towards the cup and sure enough.. there was probably the most beautiful Pro V1x I've ever seen. as joy over whelmed me i began to shake in excitement. I couldn't imagine my reaction if I would have seen it myself. but thanks to Titleist and Pro V1x.. i got the best results out of my spectacular shot.. which I will be able to share as a memory for many years to come.

Hole In One

March 30th, 2013

A beautiful sunny day in Shelby twp Michigan with the temperature in the low 50s without a cloud in the sky. I step onto #17 with an 8 iron and a 7 iron. 151 yards away and the pin in the middle of the green, I decided to go with a casual 7 iron. A pond with cattails on the left and the breeze in my face, I connected beautifully directly at the pin. one bounce and a trickle in, hole-in-one!

such excitement as this was my first hole in one, in which I haven't even seen one with my own eyes either.

pretty good first round to start off my 2013 year eh?

Blind Ace

I stepped into the box knowing the green was over the hill to my right. The fairway doglegged around a very tight hilly area on this 281 yard Par 4. Normally I lay up and pitch to the green on this hole, but I was 4 strokes behind my good friend. He hit his drive safe and was in good position to make another par. I decided to take a chance. Being that I have only been playing for 11 months, I am rather inconsistent. Since acquiring my Titleist 909D Comp, I have found more confidence off the tee. I took my shot and watched my ball just graze the top of the hill blocking our view of the green.

It felt good off the tee and I knew it would run. On the other side, stood a recently punched green surrounded by water on 3 sides. I approached on foot. As I headed to the green to find my ball, the foursome playing ahead of us celebrated screaming that the last shot rolled into the cup. I looked at my brother in disbelief as we decided to run towards the hole. Sure enough, my Titleist NXT Tour ball sat at the bottom of the cup hugging the pin. At that moment, I felt like I had just won the US Open. I celebrated with my father, brother, friend, and 4 total strangers. I managed to settle down and get a quick picture before finishing the round. I ended up losing the round to my buddy by 3 strokes...but I accomplished something so breathtaking, I'll never forget it. The scorecard hadn't mattered from that point on. The clubhouse was buzzing about it when I arrived. The only thing that could have made the moment better was to watch the ball roll into the cup myself. For me, a 1 year rookie at 33 years of age, I'll settle for the second hand account of the strangers playing ahead of us. This accomplishment validated my decision to play Titleist balls. I wouldn't be caught playing any other kind of ball. You can say the same for my trusty Titleist driver as well! I may never get my handicap where I want it, but in the eyes of the men that witnessed my blind Ace, I will forever be, a legend.

Hole in one - 8055

I shot my hole in one earlier than your dates. However it was during a 2 day tournament at the Ticonderoga C.C. in N.Y. state. I was playing with Mike Sullivan, Frank Fowler, and Don Perry. The day before I just missed a hole in one on the same hole. The next day I used the same 4 wood on the 210 yd par 3 and hit just in front on the green. I turned around and was walking off the tee box when my playing partners started screaming it's in the hole. I never saw it drop in the hole but when I arrived at the green I grabbed the Titleist DT90 #3 from the hole.
