Hole-in-one stories

The Natural Number 9

We were on our annual "August" outing and weren't even supposed to play this course...it wasn't part of the packaged we had paid for. We saw the course 2 days earlier and thought it looked like a nice course. The hole in one happened on the finishing hole of the front 9. I was in the in 2nd foursome to play, so we had a little heckling group up by the green which is customary with the group I play golf with. From the gam, the hole played 150...that day we figured it measured about 137. I was going to hit a 9 but decided to play a wedge in - GOOD CALL!! Because the hole was hidden, we thought "The Hecklers" were messing with us! It wasn't until we got up to the green and I asked which ball was mine they said "look in the hole!"...what a great feeling to see that Titelist sitting there in the bottom of the cup next to the pin!!

My First Hole In One At Age 25

It was a 4 man scramble charity event at Hankered Hills Golf Course in Pleasant Lake, MI. There was a large hill on the green in front of the hole and the pin was placed to the back. I figured it would play like 140-145, so I chose my 9 iron. We saw the ball land what seemed to be about 3 foot left of the pin then roll towards the pin out of sight behind the hill. I figured it would be close since it made it past the hill that was covering the hole from our sight. The other three guys then shot with one other ball within what looked to be ten foot also left of the pin. As we were approaching the green the guys were saying nice shot to me but they thought the ball within 5 feet was mine. One of the other players said "Wait! This is my ball" I then looked briefly in the rough behind the pin and when I didn't see my ball I said "check the hole!". The first man to the hole said "Chris! It's in the hole! We cheered like crazy.

A Dream Come True

My husband had more faith than I did that one of these days, I would get a hole in one. Well it finally happened, my first hole in one in front of all the guys on Sunday, 9/7/14. We played at our home course, Alhambra Golf course. It was a hot and humid day. I was last to tee off on hole #15, the short par 3. The pin placement was a blue flag, back center of the green. The distance from the red tee box was 118 yards on an elevated green. I took my 5 wood and played my Titleist ProV1 ball. I hit the ball and it took flight straight to the pin. All I could hear was my husband yelling for the ball to go in the hole. The other 2 guys in our group were already at the green watching my ball roll onto the green. The foursome in front of us were also watching my ball and the magic happened. My ball hit the green, rolled towards the pin and just disappeared into the cup! I jumped and screamed. I kept repeating "oh my God" and I'm sure the players on the back nine of the golf course could hear all of us roar with excitement! My husband always wanted me to switch to a different golf ball, but I liked the feel of the ProV1. This hole in one definitely validates that the ProV1 is my ball of choice! Word spread around the golf course and I stuck to tradition and bought a round of drinks for all the guys that we play golf with on Sunday. This was one of the best experiences of my life!

My First Ace

As I hit my tee shot one of my partners said, your buying drinks today. We got to the green and could not find my ball. While looking, one of our group noticed a divot 6in from the hole and pointed. He then looked in the hole and pointed again. I was so stoked!

Father and Son Hole in One Same Round

My golf fanatic seven year old son, Tyler, got his first hole in one (a broken foot wouldn't stop him from golfing) during the same round I got my first ace at our home course Brooklawn Country Club in Fairfield, CT on September 6, 2014. His came on the 5th hole and mine on the 15th after a three hour lightning storm delay. The alarm had sounded when we were on the 14th green and he wanted so badly to finish the round so we waited it out. Thank goodness he was so persistent! We were both playing a Titleist Pro V1 which will definitely be getting framed, along with our scorecard. Attached is a picture of us after our round (cast and all). He's wearing a hat signed by one of his favorite golfers, JN.

What a truly amazing experience to share with my son!
