ACE s high!!!
« on: April 01, 2019, 12:22:41 AM »
 186 yrds  slightly elevated  par 3  4th , coming off a lip our birdy first  , an OB  double on 2   and a  birdie on 3  start......
brdigestone tour B x  yellow fluro , a fresh gusting wind  right  to  left slightly favouring.
MASDA copper 6i with NS 2g18s in hand. no  small tee in pocket so simply hacked a grass tee .

Flushhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhed......!

oh boy I got that puppy  I says........
 lose flight in the cloudy  sky, saw it start trailing back form right edge of green,  I knew I got it, itll be right ,  it SHUDE  be middle  of greenish .
booomph.... lands about 6 feet from pin ,  hops  and   runs  the  next few  feet in what seems like an eternity, time stopped..... then...........................

 it  disappears!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

cud hear the clunk from the tee.

caddy goes ape shiit  jumping up and down pointing at the hole.

hoping id be a bit  cooler  and just  go yea......... nice shot........... shud help my round.......


hahahha  no chance

I  go all   Kirk  Gibson game 1  1988 word series  esque round the box.
playing  partners are  hopping about hugging .


 It doesn't matter if ur a pro or a sunday hack like us   the result is the same when ACES high show up.

27 yrs of attempts and one  FINALLY goes in .


was a mixed bag front nine shot 38 with 2  other birdies, the ace, 2 birdy try lip outs and what seemed  like a buzillion doubles, my 31 turned to a 38 before my eyes.

tough game golf!

got  a  memorial plaque  and  the ball trophied  coming form the club  and MAYABE a memorial tree planting.

good feeling.
never thought id get one.
almost sublime.

Congrats! Did you have to buy drinks in the clubhouse for everyone?

Luckily when I got mine, it was a “morning back 9” weekday round in November and no one was golfing besides me, my friend and 1 stranger.

Insurance covers for that.. at least here it does.

we got it here  as well, but its more  well ( solely)  for members at clubs, blow in/ drop in s like us don't have the same   stigma applied ot them, if a loca member l here gets hole i n one , oh man they  pretty much gotta mortgage their house, ever person they've  ever met gets a towel or a cap or a trinket....

bizarre  but I saw it happen to a friend yrs ago  he had insurance  thankfully bec his pay out was ridiculous!
