I've been playing 35 years, and still none for me.
I wish I had that luck. I've seen kids miss like that a lot end up with short birdies. Once a kid we were playing with, I would guess 50 yards out tops it completely it never goes in the air but rolls 49 3/4 yards right next to the hole. It was on dead aim until the last couple feet it turned left on him. Kick in birdie. Crazy game.

The closest I ever saw was from my daughter at a tournament at The Bear’s Club in Palm Beach. A par 3 over water. She thinned a hybrid that took 3 skips covering 50 yards over the water. The ball hops onto the green and is rolling to the cup with decent speed. The other dad I was with, whose daughter now plays college golf as well, stands up and is going nuts. He keeps saying “go in the hole, go in the hole, go in the hole” and keeps getting louder as it approaches. It hits the flag stick, rolls out to about a foot.
Have seen her hit two Eagles on Par 4’s in tournament play. The latest was at last years state high school tournament. She wasn’t playing particularly well. Was on a par 4 late in the round on the hardest green on the course. She hits this beautiful 8i and when it is in the air, her playing partner who had one state the year prior, says “That might go in the holes.”. The ball landed softly on the green, too a ridge and rolled in.

They both got theirs at the same course which is a great par 3 track that is affiliated with a private club and home of the golf association of Tennessee. It hosts a number of junior tournaments and has some really solid holes to test all ability levels. My youngest actually got his first at the age of 7, hitting a driver from 120 that flew to the front on the green and then rolled up a tier and into the hole. The great thing was that we had some friends on an adjacent hole who were watching the whole time and celebrated and ran over when it went in.
Fast forward 6 months later to my oldest on Masters Sunday - he got his first by hitting a sand wedge from 84 yards. The green has big bunker in front of a severely right to left slopped green so we never saw it go in - but from the moment he hit it he thought it was tight. As we are walking up we didn't see his ball so I told him to "check the cup"! The funny part is that his brother was actually a bit upset initially as although he plays some tournaments here and there - he is much more into baseball - that was something he had over his big brother. That lasted all of a minute and then he was thrilled - and then reminded Dad that "he now needed to try harder" to get one.
I am continually "trying harder" to this day. Just last week I texted my oldest a picture from our club where I stuck a tee shot from 180 to 3 inches - his response - "close doesn't count....". The struggle is real.

As to how it went in, she said it came backwards. I was like ok well must have been a little hill behind the pin location. However, I am a little more curious now because she played in a tournament this past weekend, 18 practice round holes, and 36 holes of play. I noticed her ball checking up big time on some shots out of bunkers, almost stopping, and another guy with us said he saw one of hers roll backwards on a sand wedge shot out of the fairway. So I'm wondering if she actually put backspin on it and it rolled backwards into the hole. She doesn't put backspin on it intentionally of course yet, but it makes more sense than it rolling back down a hill, especially on that green. I guess we'll never know for sure.
