26 Years of Waiting

After just triple bogeying the par 5 14th at We-Ko-Pa Saguaro course, I was pretty bummed but ready to take a cut at the 216 yd 16th hole. I hit my shot well, just right of the flag and it started to come back left with the wind and I didn't think much of it. Eventually I lost sight of the ball and just heard it hit the ground which sounded like the green. I said that it sounded like it was on and one of my partners said that it sounded like it went long.
We drive up and I start looking all over for my ball. I must have spent 3 minutes looking all around the green and in the desert. While I'm about to drop a ball to play, my partner walks up and says that there is a ball in the hole. Sure enough, it is my Titleist V1x sitting there, in the hole, logo up.
Nearly all of my golfing friends have a hole in one and it has been a running joke that I hadn't had one yet. Now, I can say that I'm "part of the club" and I couldn't be happier.
