Have played golf since I could walk! Have done it all...hit the pin, lipped the cup, left it on the edge, etc. Have hit shots that looked like they were in from the minute they left the face. This was one of those. Landed a couple yards short, took two bounces, and then I heard the sound of the pin.
We didn't see it drop in, since the hole was just a few inches below our line of sight, but my wife and the guy who had joined us on the first tee, knew it right away. I thought I heard the faint sound of the ball contacting the pin and thought it was in too, but didn't get too excited until I pulled my Pro V1 out of the cup.
Finally! Hoping it opens "the floodgates" to more!
