I don't have the decades-long chase that some of you have. I've only been playing regularly for about 8 years now.

What I do have is an 8-year-old who constantly reminds me that he has an ace, and that he got his when he was 5. So that's my burden.

I don't know of any 8 year olds that I don't like....... but I think I could make an exception!!   😜

Been playing since the 70's....many, many close calls... sticks hit, lip outs, tap in birdies.....but no H I O's.

I am glad to join this therapy thread!!  👍

A little research found that 40% of aces are made with a 7, 8, or 9i.  

Titleist account for 45% of all aces.  

Average years of playing is 24 years. 

Average hdcp is a 14. 

3500/1 to make an ace.

Poor Kirke, robbed early of a lifelong chase for the ace 😆.  If he checks off the albatross before his 13th B-day, we'll have to start a MGS GoFundMe until he gets his own sponsors.

At the end of the season, the winner of this thread is the guy whose ball finished closest to the hole without a hole in one.

Great so now I need to add a tape measure in my bag. But I know the day I finally get one it will be early Sunday morning and playing by myself and no witnesses. That will be the ultimate kick in the pants. But at least I'll know I finally did it.

I don't have any pictures, but I'm aceless and have been playing around 7 years now.  It took my dad about 30 years to get his one and only ace.

It would probably be a jinx, but you could use a Sharpie to put 6" marks on your putter shaft in lieu of a tape measure. 😀

I have two close calls: the first was in my league, about 160 yards, ball came up one revolution short. The second one I didn't see, but it had to be close. Uphill, so the surface of the green was not visible, 180ish. Got there and my ball mark was a few inches in front of the pin, the ball was a few inches behind, and a straight line between them went through the center of the cup.

I have to admit, I've probably used up my luck. I have three albatrosses, but I would give all three for an ace.

Just to make us feel better I think his dad needs to be handing him the snow shovel and kicking him out the door to fund his own 8 yo hole in one self!! They are in Michigan after all.  And he could even be muttering "Hows that H I O feel now punk" as he hands him the shovel!    😂
