My First Hole in One

Cinnabar Hills Hole #5 on Canyon course. I had purchased a bulk of 120 Titleist Pro V1, and Pro V1x golf balls and was using one of them and knocked my 9 iron a perfect 130 yards.. where it landed a couple inches right of the hole and due to the natural baby draw on my shots, it started to roll towards the hole and slipped right in !!! I'm a FIRM BELIEVER of Titleist golf balls regardless of their ridiculous prices :) !

Just do not screw up

Was having a scary good night in our Thursday golf league. I was already 4 under (2 birdies & an eagle) when we got to our 8th hole (17th at Delray Beach Golf Club) and was just trying not to screw up. The tees were up a bit; a little helping breeze; 128 yards to the middle; slightly uphill; flag is back; don't screw up. I hit pitching wedge and it looked pretty good, high and straight. I saw it on the green for a second or two and then looked away in relief. From the tee you normally can't see balls between the front trap and middle of the green so I'm not too excited when I look back and don't see the ball. That changed upon driving up and finding no balls short of the pin. Sure enough, it's in the hole! Frank, my playing partner, then chips in from 20 yards away for a 2. That's 3 for our cart. Pretty good! On our 9th hole (18), my 12' birdie putt is two inches short, dead in. Finished with 30. That was fun!!!

Memorable Memorial Day

By: tome30

On a late afternoon on Memorial Day 2014, I was on the fourth tee box at Kingswood Golf Club facing a shot that required a carry over a gully to a multi-tier green. The pin was placed on the front lower-tier. I took my rangefinder to obtain a distance of 138 yards to the pin. Feeling that a pitching wedge was adequate for putting myself in good position, I made solid contact with my pitching wedge.

The ball was heading towards the flagstick with a slight draw. As cheesy as it sounds, I did use the famous Hal Sutton quote as my Titleist ProV1x #3 made its descent towards the ridge that separated upper and lower tier. The ball left its impression on the top half of the ridge and accelerated back downward from the ridge towards the hole from approximately 9 feet away. In an instant, the ball disappeared as it made its final approach towards the hole.

I was doubtful of what just occurred amid the cheers. Was the ball behind the pin? Why did the ball disappear on the green? Needing a better look, I reached back for my rangefinder to get a closer look of the pin and the hole. Seeing absolutely nothing on the green confirmed that I just made my first hole-in-one.

After everyone teed off, I couldn't get the words out for how I felt about my first hole-in-one. I could only muster a few sentence fragments from the lump in my throat.

After a quick cart drive, I approached the green with no clubs in tow and proceeded to video record my walk towards the hole to view my Titleist ProV1x #3 firmly at the bottom of the cup and took pictures of my proud accomplishment.

Beautiful evening in Minnesota so me and my son decided to squeeze in a round. We arrived at number six and I was undecided at first whether to hit a seven or and eight. Well I made the right choice and went with an eight and it one hopped on the green and dropped right in. It was an awesome moment to share with just my son. Absolutely something the two of us will never forget.
