My First Hole in One - 63501
Posted: April 10, 2014
On a blustery day at Rock Hill Country Club in Manorville, NY while playing in the first PBQ Golf Club (http://www.pbqgolfclub.com) outing of the season on April 9th, 2014, our foursome stepped up to the 4th hole, a 160 yard par 3. I pulled a 4 Iron with the wind in our face teed up my high number (6) Titleist PRO V1x ball and made good contact. My foursome (Mike Engel, Mark Schraml, Mark Hoppe) watched the ball sail onto the green and after a moment Mark Schraml turned to me and said I don’t see that ball any more. Figuring that the ball had rolled over the green the remaining players all took our tee shots and Mark Hoppe and I took our cart and drove up to the green to find out where the ball had come to rest. We searched the back of the green and the small hill behind the green and could not locate it, at which time Mark Hoppe looked in the cup and proclaimed you’re not going to believe this… you got a HOLE IN ONE! Then turning to the other cart he yelled HE GOT IT IN ONE, HE GOT IT IN ONE! Mike Engel was kind enough to document the occasion taking a picture of me next to the 4th hole flag, and we went on to play our remaining holes still in shock from the fact that I had made my first ever hole in one.
