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. 

I've hit a number within 2' but nothing in the cup. I'm ready for another PNW meet up for sure

Almost a hole in one, all it needed was one more roll, inch or so from the cup, 2019 or 2018 at Quarry Oaks #6 167 yards over water. Two guys I teed off with were really happy on the tee box, I could not see it until I was on the green and was very happy of course.

Nice and Ugghhh at the same time. Now you have a place to record such close encounters and obtain the power of group therapy 😆.

Actually even potentially better i.e. could have won $10,000 but not as close in 2019 at the Carman $10,000 a hole par 3, 18 hole tournament (could win $180,000 if all aces).

On the first hole 165 yards out I borrowed a playing partners PING G400 5 iron (that is 15 yards longer than my TNT SilverEagle 5 iron which is a PING Eye2 knockoff from 1985), and hit a fantastic shot that rolled over the left side of the cup and stopped 18" past it, if it would have rolled a little slower it would have gone in and I would have won $10,000. I was the closest to any hole that day (had spotters on every hole of course to make it legit) and won a nice golf shirt instead. It was fun. Last year never got as close to any hole as I did in 2019 when the tournament started. Best thing is the entry fee that year was $10 and $10 for a power cart. Could have turned a $20 investment into a $10,000 gain and my first hole in one in 50 years of playing golf.

Had a few within a foot or so on a few other courses and a 150 yard approach shot once, farthest approach hole out was a few years ago 110 yards with my 9 iron.

Well, the payout would be nice but nothing like knowing you have successfully left the "Still Aceless" group 🙂.  I think the worst scenario would be the ball that finds the bottom of the cup only to be spit out 😖.

Everyone is susceptible to a 3 putt, 1' or 50' away!.....Just because I can do it more frequently has nothing to do with it.

OK, this is ridiculous.  TGC just pointed out that Tae-hoon Kim has had 3 aces at PGA Tour events that have resulted in 3 brand new cars.  Whaaat! 😲

Tae Hoon Kim can’t stop winning Genesis cars (pgatour.com)

I'll leave it to one of our spy statistics specialists to run the probability of this happening once, let alone thrice.  I just can say with high confidence that it is low.... really, really low.

I know the point of this thread is to show our heart-wrenchingly close calls, but I couldn't remember if I've really had any close ones this year yet. Just double checked Arccos, closest I have this season is just 10'.

I'm going to need to start scaring the hole a lot more frequently if I want to change my hole in one status!

They'll come in bunches... or so I'm told 😆.

@Kenny Band @Thin2win... in addition to having a hoot of a good time this next week and 6 rounds of golf, one mission goal is to add an entry into this thread 👍.  Actually, Chris could have the last time we  played MeadowWood.  He nearly jugged the blind, WAY up hill, par 3 17th. With Martha participating in the meet-up, we stand a good chance 😉.
