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, an

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.

So not to depress anyone other than myself...… I play between 50 to 75 rounds a year. So lets use 50. 50 rounds times 4 par three's is 200 attempts a year. 200 times 30 years is 6,000. For three

All you have to do is play number 8 at St. Andrews, hit a 155 yard shot right at the flag at 103 MPH with a 20 degree launch angle with 3596 backspin and 412 draw spin to account for the left to right wind.

Slackers!

Well if that's al it takes, I'll book a flight tomorrow. Then I can get out of this thread. Would have been a lot cheaper if I knew this years ago.  One round there versus 75 a year here.. Just saying! 🤣

What I did get was a shot that landed on the edge of the cup, collapsed the cup edge so far that the ball hit the hard plastic edge of the cup, bounced up hitting the flag stick and then ricocheted(actual word?) 20 yards off the green coming to rest under an apple tree.

Goodness gracious. That was a brutal account and truly contemptuous consolation birdie.

Only because you inquired (and your tee shot was apparently as doomed as the Titanic), I might suggest replacing “ricocheted” with the nautically derived synonym “sheered”.

The one piece missing from the tapestry of your cruel golf gods epic is a prodigal twist, like one of the apples falling on your head mid-backswing and every single bump-and-run recovery since then has ended up in the bottom of the hole.

I’m both enjoying the commiseration in this thread and looking forward to the swing that gets me booted out of it forever.

Is this a new tool to find your golf ball under the leaves in the fall?  It looks like it is disrupting a large area of leaves. I think I need one!  Wonder if the course will let me put a hitch on the back of the golf cart.

I did use an AR15 with the golf ball launcher feature at a tournment twice.  Does that count?  Shot a very nice 340 yard drive on a par 5 and the other time landed on the green from the tee on a par 4. Fire power is awesome.

That would be fun,  I would like to see a shot gun shell type cartridge  but filled with golf balls.  Pick the best ball in a captains choice event.

Sounds like we need a golf ball launcher event like the punkin' chunkin' event they used to have in lower DE.  I always liked the engineering design involved in a trebuchet.

Since you all have shared you nearest miss story, I'll add mine for the shared grief. 

4 years ago, golfing with my dad we got to the 18th hole, ~140y. I hit a really pure shot, tracked right at the hole the entire time. I missed jarring it by about a 1/2".

What I did get was a shot that landed on the edge of the cup, collapsed the cup edge so far that the ball hit the hard plastic edge of the cup, bounced up hitting the flag stick and then ricocheted(actual word?) 20 yards off the green coming to rest under an apple tree. 

So hunched over under a tree I hit a bump shot to get back up to the green... It went in for birdie. The golf gods were just toying with me. 

That's an interesting (and exasperating) one for sure.  If memory serves, you had a close encounter on the blind, uphill par 3, #17 at MeadowWood during the PNW Meetup.

Honestly, I'm not sure how @Wedgiecan live himself... kind of like winning a tournament LD contest hitting a wormburner that takes the cart path part of the way back onto the fairway 😆.
