This thread is like taunting and comforting at the same time. I've been playing 35 years, and have had so many close calls it's ridiculous. 2 of my 5 lifetime eagles have been par 4s, does that count?

Doesn't count in my book, but also doesn't stop me from being jealous!

Ouch, that is just plain mean.  To watch that roll out towards the cup and not see it disappear... Ugghhh. But we're still glad your with us Tom... better luck next time 🤣.

That's so close! That's a great shot for an easy tap in birdie, but it's just heartbreaking to see it almost in.

Thanks, but many of the courses in my area have an abundance of shorter holes including my home course, and that was when I was playing a lot and playing well. Those days are long gone!

Nicely done! It shouldn't be too long now, a year or two, until you have an even closer close encounter 🙂.

How about this one from today?

Confirmed the distance on Google Maps: a shot just under 270 yards (with a definite downslope), to within a foot of the cup. No ace, but my first regulation eagle!

Congratulations on the eagle! I know it's not an ace, but that's a heckuva drive to get it that close.

Question for y’all ... at my club the person who gets a hole in one buys a drink for everyone. I think it’s twisted. Worse than that, I had a 2 for 1 with a stroke and guys tried to pressure me, saying I owed them drinks for the one on my scorecard. I told them since it was a fake hole in one, I would be happy to buy them a fake beer … they did not see the humor.

A nice start to the winter season in Yuma, AZ.  Played my first round at Desert Hills.  $15 for 18 walking 👍.  They just reopened today after overseeding, and the greens were left long and putts quite wonky... 0.2 on the Stimpmeter 😄.  #17, 164 yards over the lake.  This was pure magic to watch and, while not my closest to the pin, not that far from jugging it.

I had one today with my brother that gave me a scare. Slightly uphill par 3, back pin. I hit a partial 8 iron and the ball was all over the pin the entire flight. We saw one hop, then it disappeared and I really thought I might have plunked it. Turns out I flew the green by about a yard, and the ball plugged which is why it disappeared so fast 😅

I am still a card carrying member of the aceless club since this one hopped backward instead of forward.  185 yard 4 hybrid, never left the flag.  I even had witnesses on hand for this one. IMG_20211024_145143167_HDR.jpg.4eb659d211fceee64402e7a1544204a6.jpg
