As it was in the air I said something along the lines of, "Hey, that might have a chance."
The best part:
There was someone there taking side bets. $10 buy-in and on the green got a sleeve of balls, within a circle got double your money, and a hole in one got $1000.
The person taking the money (obviously not a golfer) said casually, "I was wondering when someone was going to do it."
The worst part:
After that I had way too much adrenaline running and my partner basically had to play the next 3 holes solo.
Because of that we ended up taking 3rd instead of having a chance to win it.

- Putter off of a 90 yard straight downhill muni we practiced on when I was in high school.
- Wrong club that landed on the rocks short of the green, bounced on the right middle, caught a slope and rolled into the cup.
- Last crappy one was a 7 iron that I hit 30 yards right of the green onto a slope, ball bounded down the hill, over the cart path and onto the green. Hit the pin and dropped,had it not hit the pin it would have gone in the water.

The no-witness ACE was on a 150 yd par 3. Blind shot due to elevation. Could not find my ball as I was playing alone. I assumed it went over the green and into the woods. I dropped a ball, chipped on, lag putted up to the hole and found my original shot in the cup.

I was playing with my daughter when she got one when she was in high school several years ago, similar story, but it was the end of the day, and she was hitting into the sun. She hit a PW from about 100+ yards. It looked good but we couldn't see it because of the sun. Checked over the green and didn't see it, then checked the hole, and she had holed it.

13th hole, 145 yard par 3 with the sun directly in our eyes. Unsurprisingly, I was the last to play. Pulled 9 iron, took a rip and knew immediately I had hit it a little fat. I was just about to start cussing and one of my playing partners said "it was right on line before I lost it, though." Unfortunately we all lost it in the sun. I walk up to the green, looking everywhere short of the green, in the bunker, etc. Couldn't find it. Walked off the back of the green, couldn't find it. Finally as a last resort I just checked in the cup and there she was. I could not believe it. The only thing I can think of is that it must have hit the slope on the front of the green just right and popped up and rolled right in. Better to be lucky than good I guess haha.
Edit: I forgot the best part of the story. I was so excited about the hole in one that on the very next hole I did the unthinkable.. I TEED OFF WITH THE HOLE IN ONE BALL. I was fighting a case of some left of left rope hooks, and hooked it into the woods. Took me two hours (almost dark) to find it, but eventually found it (MUCH further than my normal tee shots go.. adrenaline I guess). Luckily I had marked it uniquely enough that I had no doubt it was my ball.

My first was on a 158 yard hole. I was playing with some irons that I wasn't hitting too well. The hole was playing into the wind so I hit 6 iron. Not a particularly well struck shot, but not bad. Bounced once short of the hole and then I lost sight of the ball. It's really hard to see the hole from the tee because of the way the green is designed, but I had a feeling it was gonna be really close. As we're driving up to the green I don't see a ball anywhere and I turn to my dad and say "it's in the hole." Sure enough, there it was. Thought I'd be more excited about it, but I think I felt more relief than joy. Didn't even save the ball.
Second ace happened less than a year later on a different course. Hole was playing 115 into the wind and I hit a punch pw. Ball landed short left of the hole, took one bounce to the right and straight in. There were a few greens keepers working on the back green side bunker that started cheering. Luckily I saw this one go in. Definitely more exciting when you see the ball go in from the tee

2nd one- 155yrd TTP. Hit a high draw, landed 2' to the right, caught the slop and rolled into hole! I didn't even see it because of rough in front of green.
3rd one- 176 to hole. Hit a nice draw onto green. Caught the slope in favor of the draw, rolled about 20' into hole. That was nice to follow it to the pin and see it disappear.

156yds, 7i. Huge uncontrolled slice which caught the 30mph crosswind, landed 30ft short of the hole and rolled in. I rarely made par at the time. The other people in the foursome were stunned. It was funny. I think that they were actually disappointed that someone so bad at golf could make a hole in one.
Almost made another in the same round, 200yd hybrid hit super thin and rolled within inches of the hole. The other players really got a kick out of that one.

Ahh the old Apex Tour. That thing would spin like a top.
Posted 19 June 2017 - 10:25 PM
#2 - 127 yard PW, hit behind and right of hole, spun back down and went it.
#3 - 170 yard 6 iron. One hop and went in. Just a slight draw
#4 - 135 yard 9 iron. Another pin behind bunker so did not see it but the group ahead had waved us up to play thru. Hit really high shot...then they started yelling.
Not a hole in one but this week I had a double eagle...208 yard 3 hybrid, big sweeping draw. All I could see was the top of the flag. Looked for almost 5 minutes for my ball before playing partner looked in the hole and found it.

I felt bad since the ace stole the thunder from my daughter's eagle three holes earlier. Nonetheless, my wife reminds me to tell people that she still beat me by 5 strokes!
Like the typical WRX club ho here, I already had a new set of irons arriving the next day.
