I've played golf for 43 years now and today June 30, 2014, scored my first hole in one. It came on my home course Greystone's 11th hole a 142 yarder using a 9 iron.
I live near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and on June 7th while playing with friends I aced our 14th hole at Edgewood Country Club. The par three was 130 yards up hill into the wind with a 9 iron. The pro v1 seemed to penetrate through the wind, checked up and spun back into the hole. Great responsiveness by the Titleist from a slightly better than average golfer. On June 30th just a few weeks later, I was playing in a charity outing at Sewickley Heights Country Club . The pin was located in the center of a soft and somewhat wet green that sloped slightly from left to right on the 13th hole playing 165 yards. There was no wind and the green was slightly lower than the tee box. When I hit my 8 iron I knew by the way only Titleist balls feel when coming off the club face it was going to be good. With a slight draw the ball tracked directly towards the flag. When it hit the green it checked up a bit then ran straight into the jar. I'm sold on Titleist Pro V1 balls and I'm sure neither of those shots would have gone in had I been using any other brand.
My 87 year old father and nephew play each Sunday at Deer Valley Golf Course in Big Rock IL. It was a nice Sunday morning for golf. We were not pushing anyone nor was anyone pushing us. We all had good holes, and we all had holes which "bit" us. We got up o hole number 9 and I happened to be the second one up, my nephew hit first. He his a wedge on the 143 yard 9th hole and came up way short. The green is a tow tiered green. If the pin is back, I typically hit an 8 iron. If it is front I typically hit a 9 iron. I was trying to make the decision on whether to hit the 8 or 9, based on a little breeze which was is our face. When my nephew came up so short, I decided to hit the 8. I hit my ball and it had a slight fade on it, but it was tracking real nice. It his about 6 feet to the left and just past the hole. It took one bounce on the up slope, bit and began coming down the slope and moving right. We watched as it rolled toward the hole and then all of the sudden it diapered! I immediately yelled it went in, and started high five-ing my nephew and dad. I looked back and the hole to make sure it went in and we could not see the ball. It was the first Hole-in-one any of us had seen in live play. My Dad hit one during some practice shots, but not in a regular round. It was quite exciting and I couldn't have asked for more than to share it with my Dad and nephew.

Hit an easy 6-iron to a center flag, 171 yards. The ProV1X landed left of the flag, pin high, on a ridge. The ball rolled to the right and drifted amiably into the hole. My friends and I agree that the one who holed the ace should be the recipient of liquid refreshments, not the provider, and I've done the same for them, so I only had to supply drinks for a small group in the restaurant. I was given a blue flag with the name of the course and the words "Hole in One" from the course pro, Jim Wagner. It's fun to share this with my regular group of friends.
Had my first hole in one this last weekend at Old Oak C.C. in Homer Glen, IL. Hole 6, 198 yards. Used a Titleist 21 degree 913 hybrid.
