ANNIVERSARY HOLE IN ONE
First hole out
Posted: February 18, 2014
Started playing when 12 years old with my father. On September 22,2013, we were playing Earlywine South and I teed up my Titleist Pro Vx on the 130 yard par 3 6th. Thought I should flight the ball low and choose a 9 iron. When I contacted the ball it felt good and saw the flight start low but we all lost it in the sun. We all heard a noise and thought the ball hit the flag and bounced into the creek. When I approached the green I thought of checking the hole and sure enough, to my suprise and delight the ball was lodged at the bottom of the cup. This will be placed in a shadow box along with my card and ball that I made a double eagle years ago.
My round started of pretty horrible, taking a double bogey on the first hole. The next three holes I saved par with a chip-in on the fourth hole for par. Missed the green on the next hole, pin high, and made my putt for birdie. Next hole, two putted for par. Hole #7 I had 86 yards to the pin off my tee and stuck it to 5 feet and made my birdie putt. Next hole was 138 yards to the pin, par 3. We had the road for the Great Aloha Run in the background, with a band playing "Eye of the Tiger". I swung my pitching wedge and landed about 10 feet past the hole, and it spun back. There was a sand trap in between us and the green so seeing the ball go in the hole was almost impossible, but it was tracking. We got up to the green and sure enough, in the cup, for and ace! Next hole I birdied, to shoot 33 on the front nine. Back nine wasn't great, shot a 40. Ended up shooting 73 so not a horrible round of golf, but could have been a lot better. 4 birdies and a hole-in-one on a rainy day in Honolulu!
I have been lucky enough that I have had 18 holes in one. Each has been very special but one of the best I have ever witnessed was my Grandson's first. We were playing with 2 friends of mine when Nate hit a pure shot heading right for the flag. All of us thought the ball went into the hole but in a stroke of genius by 3 old guys we pretended that we had not seen what happened. Nate was beside himself with joy and was telling us that it went in the hole but we took a large amount of time hitting our shots, backing off and resetting and just generally messing around to delay him confirming it. Finally, we finished and slowly started walking toward the hole but Nate could not wait and absolutely sprinted the 148 yards at full tilt. By this time we were laughing so hard so that when we finally got to the hole he realized we had been playing with him and he jumped into my arms and hugged me and slapped high fives to the other guys. It really was one of the best and most joyful things I've ever done with one of my best friends and he and I still laugh about my little joke on him. Thanks, Nate.

Playing at my favorite course Twin Warriors, on hole #9 which is usually a tough hole for me. Playing a shot 165 yds over a small canyon into the sun with a slight wind in our face. I hit a great shot which landed close to the hole, bounced once and didn't see the ball again. I assumed it would be close to the hole. When we got up to the hole I could not find my ball, I was frustrated thinking I might have rolled off green. My buddy asked if I had looked in the hole, sure enough there was my Pro V1x sitting in the hole. Very excited, just wish I would have been able to see it, but was blinded by sun. Playing 8 years, this was my first hole in one!

After playing golf for 46 years, this was my first hole in one. I was beginning to think I would never make one. I had never really come close before. It was a cool windy day in Austin, and we were playing in our normal Monday Senior League event. I hit a pitching wedge on the 105 yard 4th hole at Falconhead Golf Club. It was a high shot which cleared the bunker, hit the green about 15 feet from the hole, took the break and fell into the hole. The best part was actually getting the see the ball fall into the hole. Makes all the time and money spent on this game worth it!
