Hole-in-one stories

My First Hole in one

The tee was an elevated tee box 110 yards to the hole. I had about 5 mph wind into my face. I hit the ball over the flag at 1:00 direction 8 feet behind the flag and spun it back into the hole. It was very cool watching it go in. I hope to have many more.

First Hole In One

I took my wife to Beekman Golf Club for a practice round. We finished our first nine on the Highland and went to the Taconic for our second nine. The first hole is an uphill par 3 at 161 yards but plays to 185+. I hit a 5 Iron and the ball gently faded toward the flag and thought I'd held the green. When I drove up the hill to the green I didn't see the ball so I started to look in the back fringe and could not find the ball. On a whim I looked in the cup and there it was !!! First Hole-In-One !!!

I was golfing with my team at a match. I was on the 3rd hole, hit it and didnt see it, asked the kid I was golfing with where the ball went. He said he thought it went over. The golf coach was at the end of hole and put his hands up like a touchdown was scored. He said it went in, it went in. We went to the hole and sure enough there it was, in the hole. It took one bounce and bounced in. Couldnt have been happier

I Finally Got My Hole in One

We were playing the 12th hole par three at Packsaddle Golf Club. It was a blind up hill shot with only three fourths of the pin visible, and a bunker guarding the front of the green. I had just announced I was putting a new Titleist Pro V1 ball into play. I hit a 121 yard shot that never left the pin. When we reached the height of the putting surface we did not see my ball until we looked in the hole. SWEET! My first hole in one.

2nd Hole In One

August 1st was a hot day, playing Catawba Creek with my brother, Mickey Ledford. We were both playing a little agitated, because they failed to tell us the greens were plugged and sanded. Trucking along enjoying the fellowship and conversation, THEN IT HAPPENED!! Hole #16 was playing about 147 yards carry, and 152 to the pin with a little wind in out face. I was up first, so I though a firm 8 iron should get me close. I knew when it left the club, it felt really sweet. Then BOOM, she bounced once and found the bottom of the cup. I had a hole in one a few years ago when i played the Titleist ProV1 balls, and i switched up this year to the Titleist Velocity balls... this is proof that both balls can get you in the hole!
