On July 14, 2014 i was playing with my normal sunday foursome in a charity tourney, it was a overcast and very humid day, this was my 7th day of golf during my 10 day vacation and i was starting to feel the pain ! lower back hurting , elbow sore, and the humidity was not helping.
it was a shot gun start and we started on hole # 14 a par 5, followed by hole #15 a par 4 , not a great start double bogey both holes, and the greens were fast ! we get to hole # 16 a par-3 listed at 128 yards, pin in the middle and playing shorter we thought with the fast greens and a tiered green we decided to play one less club, i opted for my Png G20 Gap wedge , i was the 3rd to hit the first two hit good shots and were on the green, i was 3rd to hit, i stepped into the tee box and use the heel of my shoe to form a slight dirt mound as a tee, i took a practice swing and let it fly, it was the purest iron i have ever hit dead at the flag stick, i said thats going to be nice ! due to the tiered green we had no clear visual on the green and our balls, the last man hit and pushed his shot short and left. as we drove up to the green we saw only 2 golf balls on the green between 10-15 feet away, my friend said maybe i came up short , i said no way !!! maybe its in the cup, we both laughed and said weren't that be nice, as we walked up i said no kidding check the cup as we both bent over to look we saw a ball !!!! we identified it as my ball !!! what an amazing feeling , i have come close before hitting flag sticks , coming to rest inches away, but never a hole in one ! MY FIRST !!! god i love this game, for those that don't play they will never know the feeling of playing the greatest game ever !!!
