I have had 5 holes-in-one.
#1 215 yds with a 2 iron :eek:
#2 190 yds with a 4 iron (technically this was a par 4 (on the scorecard) but we were playing a temporary green and the hole was realistically a par 3.
#3, #4, #5 were with a 7 iron. (#3 and #4 were on the same hole)
In addition, I have witnessed about 8 other Holes-in-one. (just call me the Hole-in-one Whisperer)
The strangest hole-n-one that I have witnessed was the first one. There was 10 of us in a “gang-some” Two teams of 5 playing against each other. Nine holes. we had three different bets going. One for the best score on each hole, another for the best two scores on each hole, and another for the best three scores on each hole.
My team was the second group and absolutely everything was going right for us, and apparently nothing was going right for the team ahead of us. We were making birdies on every hole.
The other team cried “UNCLE” on the next to last hole. It was late and very overcast and it started to mist. They packed it and went to the 19th hole. My group played on in and we teed of hole #17, a par 3. One of my teammates launched a nine iron to green right at the hole. We heard the ball hit the flag-stick. but could not see what happened.
When we got to the green, we found that the other team had left their money right in front of the hole, stuck in the ground with a tee. And then we found Sam’s ball had flown into the hole, right over the $150 stuck in the ground.
Yes, we finished the nine holes. Our scores were 9 under for the best ball. 13 under for the two best ball. and 15 under for the three best ball. It was incredible golf. It was like the proverbial snowball. Everything that could go right, went right for us. Everybody in our group shot under par for the nine holes and had at least two birdies. The other team (and comparable in skill level) was not even close. I think they had two birdies total.
