My very first hole in one

Its a course I've played more times then I can count. A short par 3. Just about 120 yards. Not intimidating by any means, but either was 13 at The US Open at Merion.
I hit my 712 AP2 PW clean. Not full, just smooth. As we watched it, it never left the pin. The group on the tee box ahead of us were watching too and began to come back toward our green. It felt like an eternity. We watched it hit, hop, and disappear into the hole.
We got up to the green and the group began shouting and clapping. Pretty cool, huh?
The ball had landed about a foot past the hole, hopped, and spun back into the hole.
Amazing to see a hole in one. Even better to know I hit it! Thanks to my Titleist wedge and Pro V1 for my best golfing memory to date.
