Hole-in-one stories

First One

I knew the shot was right toward the hole but refused to believe it was in until I saw it sitting at the bottom of the cup. My 3 companions all claimed to see it go in the hole, the group behind were hooping and hollering but I was in shock. 64 years old, love to golf and I have been close. It was there at the bottom of the hole. A Pro VI #13.

Lucky 13.

Fathers Day Special

Been golfing for over 25 years. Have come close many times and really really close 2 other times. Talking miimeters from the hole!

I was playing Avila Beach on Fathers Day in 2013 with my son Donovan and my brother Jake. I was playing pretty well and when I got up to the Par 4, 5th hole, I birdied it. It's not that tough of a hole but it's tough to birdie because you can't see the green from below. I stuck it within a foot and birdied it.

Then I got up to the next hole, beautiful hole. Downhill over the water, with the mountain and sun in the back drop the pin was middle back and I hit an 8 iron 163 yards. Bounced once, rolled a short bit and plop. It dropped!

We jumped up and down and screamed for a sec. Guys behind us heard and it was quite a loud celebration with everyone.

I went on to par the next hole and played well that day. Being -3 under in a span of 2 holes was the best I've ever done but the most memorable was the fact that I got my first hole in one with my son and my brother on Father's day.

I believe it would've been different had it not been on that day and without them two by my side.

Unlucky day

Playing in our Monday scramble at Scotland Yards golf course in Dade City Florida. We had our largest turnout of the year. 65 guys showed up on this beautiful sunny winter day. We shot gunned off the 17th hole. We had a pretty good round going, we were 9 under going into the 16th hole, our final hole of the day. The hole was playing 143 yards into a slight breeze. I teed off first with an 8 iron, hit it pure and lost site of it. The next thing I hear is one of my playing partners yelling it's in the hole. I put my head in my hands and said,"65 people to buy beer for, of all the luck." I went to the hole and pulled out my Titleist Pro V1, head to the clubhouse and handed my credit card to the bar tender and set up the beer. STUPID HOLE IN ONE.

Quarry Golf SA Texas

We started off on the back nine and I hadn't played in 8 months, my goal was to go out and hit some quality shots and see where I was after such a long break. Well I had plenty of swing as you can tell from my score card but overall was content. we made the turn and I was feeling strong. when we got to #3 the wind was in our face and would die out, I grabbed my pitching wedge and walked to the tee box. with the wind I decided to go back and grab my 9.....I went first my swing felt good but the wind stop as the ball took fight. I knew it was headed to the pin but thought the wind was gonna cost me. Meanwhile my friend was saying "your gonna have to buy drinks" the whole time. The ball hit left of the pin and started to roll towards the hole. I will never forget the feeling of seeing the ball disappear.
