Hole-in-one stories

There I was

Playing a par three course at night in Las Vegas. Wind in my face, small slopping elevated green, I selected a nine iron, aimed slightly right of target and with a held off 3/4 swing made solid contact. Walked on the green with my foursome and there were no balls on the green. I walked over to check the cup and low and behold my ball was in the bottom of the cup. Cheers and a pat on the back was the final piece of celebration.

The craziest day of my golf career

By: jons31

When we decided to play a warm up nine at Oakway golf club, I had to rethink playing the other nine after making my 6th career hole in one on the 138yard ninth and getting to 6 under for nine holes. But after purchasing all the drinks I owed we headed out to play Tokatee golf club. As we reached the 11th hole, the 187 yarder I decided to hit a hard 6 iron that would ride to wind from right to left. It headed just right of the flag and started blowing back towards it. It landed on the front edge and was headed right for the hole. "Go ahead and do it again" I said. And to my amazement the ball disappeared for the second time that day. It was unbelievable! Even now I laugh when I think about it. I trusted my titleist prov1x for both of my hole in ones that day!

Finally after 41 years an ace

Playing in the last league day of the year at Trails West Golf Course on Fort Leavenworth, Kansas I got my first hole-in-one. It was the first hole of play. A par 3 with the pin set at 133 yards. I hit an NXT Tour with a choked up 8 iron. I hit my normal high flighted ball at the pin and the ball came down and slammed straight into the hole. I heard the clank noise as it hit the pin going in. At first I didn't believe what I saw until everyone around me went crazy. I also won two years worth of hole-in-one money. What a day!

Called it

I've been playing for over 30 years. I used to "try" to make a hole-in-one on all par 3s, but have been aiming at the middle of the green for a number of years. One day I decided mid-round to go back to aiming at the flag on par 3s no matter what. When we got the the 134 yard 6th hole I asked my wife if she had ever seen a hole in one...then I knocked my tee shot into the hole for my second career hole in one. So happy I did it in front of my wife!!!

First Hole In One 52 years of trying

By: guym15

After 52 years of being a student of golf, made a hole in one today! The Grande in Jackson,MI #2 , 158 yards, 6 iron...... Witnessed by Bill Meyers, Ryan & Lance Cadmus! Wasn't worth a darn the rest of the way after that... Thought I was going to play well, but after the ball disappeared, it was tough.....Hit a shot towards the flag, it hit pretty close, I guess about 3-4' from the hole, hopped once, then all of a sudden it was gone... if you would have told me before we went today that this would happen, I doubt I would have believed it.......Been trying for so long, didn't know that I would ever make one. Guess I did realize the last couple years that it would be helpful to actually hit a shot onto the green on a par 3 hole...
I have played Titleist Pro V 1X for a long time, best ball around.
I was glad to have my buddies be able to see it with me, been playing with Bill for over 40 years, that's a lot of shots.......
