Hole-in-one stories

Saving The Best For Last

Steve, Dick and Curt and I were on the 18th tee on October 6 with the pin back it was 172. It's a beautiful finishing hole with water front, back and right. The peninsula does provide a bailout let, but you're looking at 4. This is a solid 6 or easy 5 iron for me, but the wind was blowing at least 1 club so I pulled from my png G15 complete set (Anser Putter)the 7 iron and kept saying to myself, just hit it solid and the wind will get you close. Hit it straight. The ball never left the flag.

It was close alright. It went in the hole. What a great day with great friends. It's only my second hole in one and I believe I'm enjoying it more. As I was placing the ball in a my Png Carry Bag compartment I laughed to my friends about it being October 6 and the PROV1X was a 6

An incredible experience

By: jank10

Well, this story is kind of crazy, but it was the best moment in my golf life! It was a PAR 4 here in Czech republic, it standardly has around 240m but the tee box was under reconstruction so it had around 210m at the moment. There were some people behind us but I planned to play cca 10m behind green so I took my 5 Iron (Titleist AP2) and didn't wait. It was the most beautiful shot I've ever made, straight, long. I mean really long so I skreamed FORE to people on the green. The ball landed maybe 2m before green and I didn't see anything. Those people started to scream and I was afraid I hit somebody. Than they scream that my ball is in the hole! They said it was an incredible experience so I was also happy for them! :-)

My gear: 5 Iron Titleist AP2 712, Project X 6.0 shaft, Pro V1 ball

Thank you! :-)

My first Hole In One

By: jonh62

Stone Creek Golf Course in Valdosta, Ga has a Charitee bet. For 3 dollars you get a ticket. Hit the ball within the flag stick get a $20 gift card, get a hole in one $1,000. I was playing in our annual member guest tournament and the hole was playing 118 yards. I hit a 52 wedge and it landed 4 inches behind the hole and spun back in. Not only did i get my first hole in one, but i also won a $1000. i think other competitors from around the golf course heard me screaming.

I waited 37 years

I've been playing sparingly for 37 years. I took up golf because my brother was playing and it gave us one more thing to compete against each other in. I've just recently retired and been able to play at least once a week. We were playing the Donald Ross designed course in Asheboro, North Carolina. It is a "tight" nine hole course in the center of the city. If you can't hit it straight and know your yardage you'll be in trouble. We were on hole #7 on the first nine and smelling all the fast food aromas from the restaurants just over the fence. The yardage on my Garmin said 112 yards and I chose a 9 iron because it was a little windy and I wanted to control the ball better. Yes, I can hit it farther than 112 yards with a 9 iron. I wanted control and that's what I got. From where the divot was, it hit a few feet behind the hole and spun back in. I hope it doesn't take another 37 years to get another one.
