Hole-in-one stories

Finally at 75

While playing in the senior league after approximately 60 years of golf I had my first hole in one. It was at Blue mountain golf course in Lebanon Pa. On April 22,2014. It was a great thrill for a 75 year old who really didn't ever expect to get a hole in one. It was the fifth hole on the course which is a par 3 - 150 yard up hill hole with the hole at the left rear of the green. It was a cloudy day but because I was using a green NXT tour S my playing partners and I could follow the flight of the ball from the time it left my 6 iron to the time it hit the green and disappeared into the hole.

Finally Made The Ace on Number 6

I play out of Picacho Hills CC in Las Cruces, NM. Our 6th hole is an up-hill par 3 of about 125 yards. I have been close to in hole in one at #6 on a couple of occasions, one of which dented the perimeter of the cup but did not drop.

On Masters weekend we have an interesting tournament where we compete on Saturday and Sunday after being paired with a PGA pro who has made the weekend cut. I did not play that well on Saturday and was out of contention given that my PGA pro (who will remain nameless)played almost as badly as I did.

During the Sunday round, I arrived at the sixth hole in the afternoon since we started on the back nine. The wind was at us, so I chose a 7 iron for the shot to assure that I would make the green. I struck my TITLEIST NXT Tour quite well and directly over the flag. The ball hit the green behind the hole and drew back down the slope into the hole. It special to have the hole in one during the tournament, except for the fact that the grill room was packed. My bar tab maxed out pretty quickly.

This was my second hole in one on our course. I holed out a Titleist ProV1 on the 15th hole a few years back.
One thing I have learned about those hole in one moments - you approach the tee with the intention of holing out, but it seems like wishful thinking - until one day. It happens - unexpectedly, but still a thrill. Thanks for letting me share

First Hole In One

I was playing at Old Fort Golf Course in Murfreesboro, TN with a friend and was not having a good round. I do not play too often being on a college budget, but decided to play and was somewhat regretting the decision by the time I reached the 17th hole. It was a par 3 playing roughly 140 yards. The pin was in the front on the far left side of the green and the hole had a small pond stretching out to the right side of the green. A bunker was tucked in between the edge of the water and the middle of the green, so the hazards were not particularly in play due to the pin location. I took out a pitching wedge because there was a good breeze blowing towards the hole. I put a good swing on it and the ball was headed just left of the pin. The ball hit about a foot above and slightly left of the hole and with some beautiful backspin and a little help from the slope the ball hit the hole and made the most glorious sound in all of golf which the clink of the ball hitting the flagstick as it goes into the hole. The feeling was surreal and I'm still trying to wrap my mind around the fact that I just hit a hole-in-one. I will definitely be replaying that moment in my mind for the rest of my life!

It did not take long

I have been golfing for 35 years with several close calls. Last October I got fitted for new Titleist AP2 irons by Sun N Air Golf Center in Danvers, MA. Matt did a great job my irons were consistently strait and traveling full distance. I have tremendous confidence with the fitting process and the feel of the new AP2s. My forth time out this year playing with Tim, Tom, and Jean. It was the 8th hole at Kettle Brook Golf Club in Paxton. A PW 120 yards to a front pin location. Smooth swing, ontrack the whole way, 2 bounces, 10 feet of roll and a rattle of the pin. Bought a round in the club house, only seven people though. The new AP2 are like butter. Gotta buy them. Cheers.
