Hole-in-one stories


My name is Blake Lewis from Pearl Mississippi. I've played off and on for twenty years, age 16 to 36, 1993 - present. In the first 18 years, I didn't make an ace. I've made 3 in the last 2 years, 2 in the last 9 days! Unbelievable!

9th Hole In One

This was my 9th Hole-In-One over a 52 year span. Everyone was made with a Titleist ball. My first one was when I was 17, with my father who would be 112 today. This one was made with Fred Bruno who was my teacher for over 30 years. Both people played a big part of me playing golf. One started me playing and the other made me into the golfer I became. It was very exciting to have Fred playing with me today.

Most Important shot of my life

My name is Anthony Barbo, and I am currently a senior at The Ohio State University. I have been an active member in the Professional Golf Management program at OSU for the past four years now. On July 26th, 2013 I was scheduled to play in the Professional Golfers' Association Playing Ability Test to reach a certification on my way to become a member in the PGA. On my second round I was standing on the 17th hole par 3, 180 yards two shots off the passing score of a 154 combined 36 hole score. I grabbed my seven iron from my bag and hit a slight fade into the green. The ball hit and rolled 5 feet into the flagstick for a hole-in-one! I managed to par the last hole and passed the PGA Playing ability test with no strokes to spare. I ended up hitting the best shot of my life in the most important round of golf I have ever played, something I will never forget.

Course - Saticoy CC in Somis CA
Hole - #13
Distance - 168 yds.
Club - 7i

Today I played in one of my Club's Stag Day Tournaments. Typically they consist of four man teams in a shotgun style format. Today we started on hole #13. I hit a 7i to about 6 feet above the hole, the ball took a line directly at the hole and about 6-7 seconds later we got to watch it disappear. This was my first ever hole in one, and having played golf at all different levels for over 20 years, I can honestly say this was the best feeling I can remember having in recent memory. First shot of the day, on our first hole, for my first ever hole in one.

Ace and best round of my life

By: leec43

After 3.5 hours of sleep the night before, my expectations were low. Perhaps that is what led to this incredible round. First, I'm a 13.3 handicap. But on this day, I was +20 over my quota. The round included three birdies and an ace for a round of 74. It was the first time I've broken 80 and my third ace. As soon as I hit it, my partner said I said, "oh wow". Indeed.
