first hole in one

it was my first time out at my home course. we just opened on Friday. i played in Florida two weeks prior ,we played five times. so i was very excited to finally play at home. i had a par on the first hole and i also had a par on two
on the third hole a 154 yd par three i would have normally hit an 8 iron but i thought i would try my 7 i just got my new titleist ap1 last fall on demo day. i tee'd off last in my group my buddy's were saying its all over the flag but i thought it was short. but when we walked up the ball was in the cup with the ball mark 2 inches in front of the cup. i have been playing golf since i was 11 years old and i'm now 54 with my first. awesome feeling i am very happy with my new irons and my titelist balls. i never play anything else i'm very superstious.

I was due for an Ace

Do you ever feel like you are overdue for an ace and that you've just got to have a hole-in-one? Neither did I, but I often made jokes about it.

This weekend I was playing in the Golf Channel AM Tour event at Kingsmill Resort in Williamsburg VA. The first round was on the Plantation Course. It was a great day for golf and I had my usual slow start and mediocre round going when we got to the par 3, 5th hole, I told my cart partner "I am due for a hole-in-one. I think that after 40 years of playing golf the time ought to be about right" I missed the green chipped on and then three putted for a double bogie. The joke was quickly forgotten.

The next par 3 was the 9th hole, a 96 yarder over a fairly deep waste area. The green was protected by a bunker in front, and the pin was center of the green. I leave too many sand wedges short, and pitching wedge was too much club. There was the bunker and if I was short of the bunker, I'd be down in the ravine.

I took the pitching wedge, laid the face open, choked up, and aimed a little left of center. I don't know where that swing came from but it was a well timed and very smooth swing and my ProV1 was on it's way.

I said "That's sweet! Get in the hole" The ball on a nice high trajectory landed on the green 6 feet from the cup, checked up for a split second, then released and tracked right to the hole. Perfect line, perfect speed, perfect shot.

I was so shook up, I couldn't do anything right on the final 9, but I got my Ace so I'm no longer overdue.
