First Hole in One

Posted: May 1, 2013

It was a beautiful day in Kingsport, TN. A little windy and partly sunny and temperature was about 68 degrees. I was playing fairly well, had two birdies on 1 and 3 with a bogey on two. I had just finished with a bogey on seven had a snickers bar from the concessions golf cart and came up to 8 tee box gaged the wind and chose the 9 iron. I hit it a little thin so the trajectory was lower than I wanted and it had a little cut coming into the green. It landed soft with a forward role and tracked right to the pin. My golf partner said "It's going in!" But it did not appear to be so, I could still see it. He said it hit the pin I thought it might have bounced back out of the hole. We got in the cart and I said maybe it is caught between the pin and the lip of the cup cause we could still see the ball. We drove to the hole and lost sight of the green for a moment and when the green and pin came into view the ball was gone. Scooter said it is in the hole and we began celebrating. We walked on the green I looked in the hole and there it was. What a day my first HOLE IN ONE since I started playing 16 years ago.

It was about 65 degrees In Walkill, NY, on the 15th hole of the Walkill Golf Course. This is a 147 yard hole with an elevated tee, with a pond in front of the green. I used a #5 hybrid and a new Titlest Pro V1x. It bounced in front of the green in the first cut, & rolled up to & into the cup. The rest of the 4some of Bob Quinn, Bruno Bissetta, & Guy Cappello went nuts. Probably the best day that I have had golfing.

It was about 70 Degress at the Walkill Golf Course in Walkill, NY on Thursday, May2, 2013. We were on the 15th hole which is a 147 yard par 3 with a pond below an elevated tee. I used a 5 hybred and a new Pro Vix. The ball flew in a nice high trajectory, and hit on the first cut in front, then bounced onto the green & rolled to & into the cup. The rest of the 4some of Bob Quinn, Bruno Bissetta, & Guy Cappello went nuts. It was probably the best day golfing that I have ever had.
