Hole in One Stories

Recommended Posts

I was complaining about my round yesterday, but it wasn't all bad. I had one funny story we all got a kick out.

 

All day I was pushing my ball right, I think I know what I was doing wrong, but for the life of me I couldn't stop while on the course. If you're on golfgamebook you can see how many fairways and greens I hit, it's pretty sad. One thing about this course is it's insanely tight and fairways run parallel to each other with maybe a single line of trees between.

 

However, on one of the par 4s, the signs say no using driver or get a boot off the course. I pulled my 5i and smack one. I really pured it, but sure enough, push right and into the trees. When I get to it though, it had gone through the trees, onto the green of the previous hole, and into the hole :lol:. The group of kids behind us cheered since they got a good view of it while walking up to the green.

 

Ironically I had to take an unplayable lie after a hole in one :lol:

That's awesome - this may be the best story ever!

 

However I think you may be entitled to a drop - don't the rules of golf permit a drop off of greens and tees that aren't a part of the hole being played?

Still on that elusive hunt for a 3 wood that I'm able to hit - I don't know why, I crush the 5 wood and it's really a 4 wood anyway.

Actually, the rules cover this. Free drop, no hole in one. It does not say anything about being in the hole but since you get relief from the green you certainly get relief out of the hole in the green.

 

Our 6th tee shots come close to the number 14 green and errant shots often find the green. Something you want to play particular attention to when playing number 14, more so than 6.

 

25-3. Wrong Putting Green

 

a. Interference

 

Interference by a wrong putting green occurs when a ball is on the wrong putting green.

 

Interference to a player's stance or the area of his intended swing is not, of itself, interference under this Rule.

 

b. Relief

 

If a player's ball lies on a wrong putting green, he must not play the ball as it lies. He must take relief, without penalty, as follows:

 

The player must lift the ball and drop it within one club-length of and not nearer the hole than the nearest point of relief. The nearest point of relief must not be in a hazard or on a putting green. When dropping the ball within one club-length of the nearest point of relief, the ball must first strike a part of the course at a spot that avoids interference by the wrong putting green and is not in a hazard and not on a putting green. The ball may be cleaned when lifted under this Rule.

 

Penalty for Breach of Rule:

Match play - Loss of hole; Stroke play - Two strokes.

I've had two holes in one and both on the same hole #5 at Lake Jonesco in middle Georgia. Nothing dramatic like what the op mentioned however any hole in one is special.  The one that was special to me was not mine, but a friend who was enjoying his son who was in town to visit from California.  He rarely visits his Dad however this time was meant to be. My buddy (Gary is 77 years old) had never had a hole in one and that's a mystery because he is a very solid golfer.  Anyways we are teeing it up on #16 at Lane Creek and my old friend hits a beautiful draw that hits a couple feet in front of the flag and trickles in for his first ace. His son was there to witness his Dad's first ever hole in one.  Pretty special day for both of them.

awesome stories!

Me too - been within a couple inches several times, bounced off the pin, etc.

 

A couple hole-out eagles from further out than the average par 3, but that's as close as I've been.

Only had one and it was the only hole in one recorded on that hole. Went to the RSM classic last year as a guest of RSM and got to play Plantation and Seaside on Saturday and Monday. Start on the back 9 on Plantation and play half decent for not having played for a few weeks. We get to #1 which is normally a par 4 that for the day they certified as a par 3 and had a closest to the pin contest for Birdies for the Brave. Six closest to the pin get into the shootout later in the day at Seaside.

 

I play first and change from gap wedge to PW and decide to hit a 3/4 knockdown. As soon as it left the face the guys in my group started saying get close. Ball hit two feet short of the pin, bounced six feet past and spun into the cup. First ace ever.

 

Now for the contest. Essentially it was one swing from 175 on #18 at Seaside and an ace was worth $1M. Sounds fun enough. They tell me to get to the range by 3:30 to warm up and when I get to the range my bag is up there with a name tag on my range stall. CHIII was next to me and wondering how the hell I got on the range. Did an interview with Matt Adams before the contest and ended up spending most of that night hanging out with him and his wife.

 

Time for the contest. They usher us to 18 as soon as play was wrapping up for the day and we get to hit the shot into 18 with about 3k people watching and Matt Adams as the MC or court jester. DLIII came out and was standing behind us as we hit our shots and offered some advice. To make a short story long I hit 7 iron from 175 right over the top of the flag.....by 30+ yards and hit the tents behind the green. DLIII's tip to me was I should have hit a wedge.

In more than 25 years of playing the game, I have yet to make a hole in one.  I have came as close as one can come without actually achieving the feat.  I have witnessed several, however.

 

The one that's most memorable was about 15 years ago at a now defunct golf course called Countryside, in Roanoke, Virginia.  I believe the property is now a soccer complex.  Anyway, I was a single and paired with an elderly gentleman in his early 80's who was an absolute pleasure to play with.  He was "full of piss and vinegar" as they say in this area and I say that affectionately.  Completely full of life with a million stories.  I enjoyed the day so much, we made it a regular Wednesday afternoon thing for the remainder of that summer. 

 

One Wednesday afternoon on a par 3, 99 yards from the senior tees, Elwood pulled his tee shot some 30 yards left of the green, up the hill toward a residential street.  It rattled around a tree for what seemed like an eternity, dropped straight down to the base of the tree, rolled down the hill, across the green, centered the flag stick and fell straight into the hole.  

 

Without missing a beat, Elwood turned and said "Well I'll be damned, the sun DOES shine on a dogs ass from time to time!"  

 

Thanks for the thread idea.  I hadn't thought about Elwood in quite a while.  Good memories.
