Well, great, add me to the "Never Seen One" thread as well 😆.

Well, you will have to play with me more often.  It seems that I get them about every 7-8 years, and it's been 6 years since I got my 3rd one (said as words of encouragement).  😂

I was really counting on Martha this past meet-up.  After the from the fairway eagle last year I thought for sure she would follow up with the ace.

She had her first one a couple of years ago on our #12... same hole I got my 3rd in 2016.  She has been Oh So Close on all the par 3's this past year.

Maybe you should create a new thread: "Never Seen An Ace" 😎.

 

 

p.s. Amazing how spunky we can get after having one 🤣

Best me to the punch, glad I am no the only one!

Fun idea. Since coming back to the game this year, I haven’t been particularly close. Today was my closest. I did make the birdie putt!

Alright boys and girls I’m out! 
decided to take a little trip to PGASS today and swing the forged tecs. Hit them well but they didn’t have the shafts for them.

proceeded to hit several other things including the callaway st pros which were really really nice swinging. Messed around with heavy and lighter shafts. The guy there was great and swapped to a 95 gram shaft just to see how it felt for me, first swing buckets

i don’t want to hear about it being a LM. A hole out is a hole out! (Might be the only one I ever have)

I have also done that on a launch monitor and on a simulator where I was playing Cypress Point, but I don’t consider them to be “real aces”. The closest that I have come is inside of 8” twice (most recently in May of this year), plus hitting the flagstick about 8 to 10” above the cup (that left a nice paint mark on my ball).

Last month at Royal Troon, my playing partners and all three caddies thought that I had aced the 183-yard 5th hole (6-iron), but the ball came to rest just behind the flagstick — somewhere between 3 and 5’.

Here’s what we saw as we walked off the tee on hole #5 at Royal Troon …. No sign of my golf ball (we didn’t see it until we got near the front of the green).

Well, I guess I lied.  My wife told me this morning that it's the 5th anniversary of my last Ace (she keeps records like that).  Since there hasn't been much activity posting here lately, I thought I would give you losers some incentive... here is my Ace photo on our #12 hole from 2017:

IMG_3204.jpeg.82ef7a43ba0a3b8b9301efd2527c8bf3.jpeg

She also told me something I had forgot.  On the prior hole... the par 4 #11... I chipped in for birdie.  When we finished the round, she told her sister "there will be no living with him now".  Well, she is still here.  🤣

Jeebus, as I started reading this post I thought "oh no you didn't... get another".  Tell Martha I think that she recalled a date like this from 5 years ago is, well, really weird 🤨.  We may have to consider putting an expiration date on HIO's. 😊

Damn this cursed game! I've got a handful of pics like this where I use my foot for reference but this is by far the closest one. That's my pitch that is directly behind the flag. 148 yd PW (with the wind) with a 1' jump backwards and almost in..
