I have seen my share of Aces, but had never been blessed with one myself. I had a pretty good round going, striking the ball well. We got to the tee box on No. 14 at the Old North State Club, a beautiful elevated par 3 overlooking Badin Lake. The distance was 163 yards, down hill, with about a 5 MPH breeze in my face. The pin was in the back left corner of the green, close to a green side bunker, and not much room behind the pin. I choose my 165 yard club, a 7 iron. The contact was perfect, and the ball flew high and straight. I could tell the wind was affecting the ball slightly. The ball hit approximately 3 feet in front of the pin, checked immediately, then trickled into the hole. You can clearly see from the picture I was using a Titleist golf ball with my signature red dot. Witnessing the shot was Ken Lambert, Carl Tucker, and Mike Mayer.

Christmas comes a day late

I was playing the par 3, fourth hole at the Links with my wife the day after Christmas. After hitting the ball the trajectory was a straight line drive at the flag. I started yelling for the ball to hit the flagstick, so the ball did not run off the back of the green. The ball landed on the green, took one hop, hit the flagstick and dropped into the bottom of the cup. My wife asked "Did that just go in?" All I could say was "yes."
