Hole-in-one stories

Home Course Ace

Jack Roberts, Bob Sukenik & I were playing a game of "9s" from the (green) super-senior tees at Treyburn C.C. on 1/21/15. After an ugly front side, my game had turned around by the time we got to #13, a 90 yd. shot over a ravine & sand trap to a front pin placement. I was using a yellow NXT S for which I was taking a lot of grief (seems the Friday before I had put a similar yellow, which Jack had given me, in the ravine). The results this time were much different as I hit a high, near perfect gap wedge which went 1 hop & in for my first ace on my home course.

I made an albatross on a par 5 at my local course playing alongside Joe Richie (the pro) and a long time golfing partner Ray Gerard. I hit driver,
9 iron and Joe was the only one to see it one hop into the hole due to a creek short of the green. The ball used was a Titleist Pro V1x struck also by a Titleist!

sucked it back

I was playing golf with my men's group and we were on an uphill par three playing that day 138. I was in a threesome and one of the guys said, " you should play it past the flag an suck it back!" I said, "I like that"
I played a pw back in my stance and 3/4rd it 4ft behind the pin and then it sucked back to the lip of the cup, hesitated and the plopped in! We went crazy. My First hole in one!

Second Ace

This was my second ace. It came a dozen years after my first. The first time around I kept playing the ball and hit it OB two holes later, never to be seen again. This time I put the ball in my pocket to save forever.

The First Ace

One day I went out to golf with my dad and uncle. I was hoping I would get a hole in one because it was a pretty short course. So I was on hole 2 at Holland Meadows golf course and I played a draw right into the green. I watched the ball roll into the hole, so I started jumping up and down. It was the greatest experience of my life.
