The Still Aceless Thread

OMG...how does this not go in...from the upslope side 😥My closest encounter ever.  #17, par 3, playing 154 at Cimarron today during the member-member tournament.  The back 9 was Pinehurst format.  My partner nearly missed his tee shot and dribble it about 30 feet into a group of shrubs in front of the tee... no pressure 😆.

Hit as pure a 6i as I can and it never left the flag.  But, I really couldn't tell how close it was.  Because I went to find and see if I could hit my partners tee shot (never found the ball), I arrived at the green and the other 3 guys are all standing around the flag, in a huddle so close I wondered what the heck they were doing. They said they were casting a showdow on the ball in hopes of making it roll 🙏.  We couldn't use the measuring tape, so I entered 0'- 1/2"... pretty sure I'll get that CTP.

If odds hold true as I suspect they will, I will never leave this thread now 🤣.

I can think of few more altruistic (and hilarious) sporting moments than three golfers huddled together in an attempt to will another player’s inert golf ball into the hole. It certainly puts a slightly different spin on the term “throwing shade”.

Uff Da… my apologies, it’s obviously wayyy too soon to casually toss around the phrase “slightly different spin” in reference to your most recent close encounter.

I swear on my own aceless record, more than any other thread on this forum, it feels like you have to tiptoe around in here. And while we’re on the tiptoe subject, seeing as they were already huddled together, real pals would have been river dancing around that hole.

Well, keep in mind that two of the players were competitors who we'll see again next week for the conclusion of the 36 holes event 😊

Been hitting a lot of close approaches lately...but still no luck on the aces. Buuut...while warming up on the range, I took out a ball and my LW, and made a "Par 3" by hitting one 65yds back across the path / over the carts to the elevated chipping green -- JARRED IT! Doesn't count, but gives me hope.

I am also on this list of not hitting one yet.....  I was changing pins years ago and they hadn't cut greens yet. 165yrds, dew on the ground still.  Hit 3ft in front of pin, rolled all the way around the cup and 2in away. Worst part was seeing the ball track in the dew.  Have hit the flagstick and hit the cup before but this just felt worse.

I have been playing golf for 65 years since the age of 11, at least 6000 rounds, and have had hundreds of shots within an inch or two of getting a hole in one.  But, last Thursday, August 31, I finally got one on hole #3 at the Deer Creek Golf Club in Clayton, IN.  It’s actually a relief rather than a thrill that the wait is over.  (I lied.  IT’S a thrill.)IMG_6375.jpeg.af2fef6dc288aae4c3491eb453d5443a.jpeg

Congratulations @sotall 👏.  Nice to see someone actually graduate from this school 😆.  As per the thread rules, you are still eligible to return and chorttle at "close encounters".

The par 3 3rd at Majestic Springs today produced an entry worthy of this thread.  Playing about 120 yards to the pin, I hit a gap wedge and this happened:

Without a doubt, the closest I’ve come in  my 30+ years of playing this grand game. When I asked @Getoffmylawn if that was a gimme. He said, nope. That’s for birdie. Consequently, he made his birdie putt as well.

Nice!! 👊  Now back to the drawing board... err, tee box 😊.

Tried to get myself out of this thread today.   First par 3 I was about 8 feet away....not bad..

Second par 3 I was about 10 inches away.  Ball landed about 2 feet short and ended up just to the right.

IMG_0877.JPG.9893b857c6935c3e80396280d3757153.JPG

Third Par 3.  Ball hit past the hole and spun back.  ended up about 4 feet from the hole.
