First hole in one at 69

Played golf for years. Was visiting Las Vegas and playing 2nd round of the day - first was ok but felt that I could have played better. So I was playing Las Vegas Paiute Sun course as my second 18 for the day and was chipping and putting beyond belief. Ended up with best round of year (71).

Came up to the 17th hole and just felt something special was happening and had feeling that I could hit a hole in one and wanted to use correct ball for hole. Was playing and trying some crome balls and felt that I was due for something and switched to my normal Tournament ball - Titleist Pro V1x. Slightly downhill par 3, playing 125 yards that day according to skycaddie.

Used a 9-iron and nailed it with slight draw towards pin. Hit very softly about 3-5 feet from pin and rolled towards cup. Saw it settle right at pin and slowly sink into the cup. Didn't believe I had holed it until my partners hollered that I had hit a hole-in-one. Still incredulous until actually got ball out of hole.

Last round in vegas and left back to go to work so a real fitting ending to day.

The pro V1x performed exactly as desired and as well as I could have ever hoped. Great Ball.

    Congrats on your first hole-in-one, and at one of my favorite resorts; Paiute.

    How was the golf course? They had a very major flood at the property at the end of August and had to renovate and do damage control and completely revamp the low lying areas of all 3 courses.
