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!

I doubt that I’ve even been that close this season. 😆

Someone on here has to have some close ones!

Two feet today on the 14th hole. 175 yards with the green breaking from right to left at that part of the green. Hit right of the pin about 4 feet short and rolled up hole high then rolled  left and it rolled right past the hole winding up 2 feet left of the pin. I thought today was the day. At least one of the grounds crew was there to see my almost!

Started playing again a few months ago and on the par 3, 3rd, hit an 8i 2 feet past the pin but span back about 15' with a direct line from pitchmark to ball right through the centre of the cup :-( 

Probably the closest I'll ever get.

I had a ball that finished 2" directly behind the hole on a short uphill par 3 a while back. Green above the tee, so none of us saw it - the ball mark was in front of the pin so I'm not sure how it ended up behind the hole/pin. Very unlikely it could have hit the pin and finished behind it. I assume it grazed the lip going by very slowly. Or it bounced just past and backed up a little, as I can still put a little tour sauce on approaches.

That's ice cold, man.

I can have @Kirke vouch for me that I made it. And trust me, he'd tell you if I missed!

This just in hot off the press. Just needed to help depress everyone. Here are the odds of making a hole in one based on your handicap.

I came soooo close last week - par three, flew a 6 iron that hit the left edge of the hole (ripping it apart in the process), then caught the actual metal cup edge, ball bounces 16 feet away and of course I three putt 🙂 Ridiculously close and that probably my proxy for a lifetime hole in one, given the odds shared above by @Tom the Golf Nut - from that my probability is 0.015% - so I guess I've achieved that 😢

So that's about 1 in 6600 shots for a 10 handicap. I'm overdue!
