Yahoo ! - Finally : A Hole-In-One !....Damn thing only took me about 50 years !

On # 7 - A perfectly struck 6 iron 148 uphill ....Easy pin position (thankfully) - Same as in photo above......
It was my 1st round of the year . . . . Beautifully struck - 2 feet of draw . . . . Landed 5 feet short.

Did not see it go in though.....The group ahead of us left a ball on the green which I just assumed was mine....

It was 20 feet past the hole.....I was disappointed. A member I was playing with began to tend the pin.

Just as I was stroking my putt he says "Awww they left a ball in the hole". While my putt was in the process of going 10 feet past, he lifts the ball out and tosses it into the ravine. The other member asked him what kind of ball it was. He replied that it was just an old beaten up TopFlite....My ears go - "What ?!?!" . . . .

"Hey that was MINE !".....He says "I know exactly where it is !". So we fetched it and laughed and shook hands and continued.....The Asians ahead of us had been playing quite slowly (according to the two members I was with). Perhaps 5 times one member shouted for the Asians to hurry up.

On the 16th tee box there was almost an argument and I'm realizing now that I could have chimed in with "Hey you guys spoiled my Hole In One (by leaving a ball on the green !)......."We should have been able to arrive at the green and PROPERLY discover that a hole in one had been scored !....Instead you guys made it a confusing event"....Hehe, because I think we could've "humbled them" with that "charge"....

Anyways, there it was - plus here it is as well :

Ha-ha : "Broke the Taylor Curse" ?? (* My brother says)

But - Oh Boy.....Just now added up the score......45 front + 54 back = 99 !.....Ha - WITH a Hole-In-One !.....Good grief.


With a little bit of practice and on a less "targety" course ? I'm SURE I could improve upon that !....LoL :

Played to between a six and a nine in my youth.
