My first hole in one

I was supposed to be home repainting the sun room, but my wife was out of town and the weather was nice, so played golf instead. Glad I did.
Didn’t play well, but got a hole-in-one on the third hole at Magellan Golf Course in Hot Springs Village. It is a par 3, slightly uphill, 140 yard hole, and there was a 10-15 mph headwind. Hit my 7-wood. The ball took off right at the pin with a slight draw. Ball hit the raised front edge of the green, bounced right and towards the pin, then disappeared behind the false front. Went up to the green and found ball in the cup. Didn’t actually see it roll in and the other guys were talking and not paying attention, so didn’t see it either, but they did find my Titlest NXT Tour ball in the cup.
I had a feeling that it went in, but didn’t say anything for fear of making a fool of myself if it had run way on past the hole.
It was a great day to play hooky and go to the golf course. Still playing hooky at 67 years of age. :-)
