Hole-in-one stories


I took my 6 iron out, and in a joking fashion told my pal" Hey I will hole this one!" When I struck the ball I knew I hit it well. Then I thought I hit it with too much force because I thought it was over the green. When we went to look for the ball we looked everywhere, then my buddy says " You wont believe this but you holed it!" To my amazement my DT Solo was in the cup.

I started playing golf as a 24 year old in 1994. The first course that I played was rattle run in suburban Detroit, MI. With my job in the auto industry being very busy and the weather in Detroit area limiting golf to perhaps 5-6 months a year, I played as much as I could and over the years I had a handicap as low as 15 and as high as 22. Since then I have traveled a lot, played a lot of courses. Now I live in Hyderabad, India and play the excellent Hyderabad Golf Association (HGA) course at-least onece a week with a handicap of 18. Today, April 15th, 2014, I stepped up to the third tee which is a short 92 yarder and used my pitching wedge with my favorite "par 3" ball - the titleist prov1x - because of its ecellent control on fast greens - and lo and behold I landed right next to the pin and backspun into the hole! My first hole in one in 2 decades of playing. Wow!

The Unicorn of Amateur Golf

Now I've witnessed a hole-n-one and played behind and in front of a group when someone got a hole-n-one. But never the "Unicorn of Golf (UOG)"; The Double Eagle.

While playing with a friend at Rancho Solano Golf Course in Fairfield CA I found the Unicorn of Golf (UOG)...The Double Eagle!

Yours truly scored a Double Eagle at Rancho Solano in Fairfield CA. It was #7 Par 5 (466). I hit Driver (913D2 – 4 Iron (193 yards) and yes I used a Titleist ProV ball. And yes I have witnesses. One of my golf buddy's Warren was there. 

I excitedly proceeded to the club house after the round and asked how do they acknowledge that accomplishment? To my shock they said they don’t. While they do for an Ace they don’t for a feat that’s even rarer! Wow! No flag, no write-up and no recognition.

Since the odds of a Double Eagle are closer to winning a lottery I wanted to tell my story. Don't leave me hanging...
