17th at Plum Creek, CO.  Short (~110 that day) but the carry is all water to the green and it's always windy so it's tough not to always take extra club.

Hit one tonight about 2 feet right in front of the hole.  Closest yet.  Now guess who missed the put!  😢

My brother who dosnt hit the ball a long way came within inches last year.  175 yards,  30 degree day with a ton of wind in our face.  He took driver and almost dunked it.  It was so cool and hilarious at the same time.

My closest last year, and very nearly my closest ever, was about 8" from the cup from 172 yards.  I was playing by myself, poorly, and pissed-off because none of my expected 3 playing partners showed up for our tee time.

Heck, the only thing I've ever holed-out other than green side was my first eagle; 196 yards which I didn't even see go in.

165 yds, all carry, 7-8 mph wind into us.  6 iron that hit behind the hole and somehow ended up in front of the hole.  I thought that was finally the day. . . . . not to be.

Thought I finally got one Thursday of Masters Week. Was playing at Bald Mountain in Lake Lure, NC. Hit a 6-iron a little thin but right on line on a 160 yard part three, hit just on the front about 15 feet short. It nicked the pin & stopped about 6 inches directly behind the hole.

Oh well, I've only been playing about 48 years...

Hit the base of a couple pins, left one a couple inches away so the usual suspects for me 30+ years playing 0 aces
I hit a 157m par 3 within 2cm just last month.  Never hit an ace in competition.  My son has one and my dad has one.  My boy sagely tells me these things do tend to skip a generation.

I hit one to about 18 inches in the fall. Maybe this year!

One of my playing buddies hit one so close I swear half the ball mark was over the hole. How that one didn't drop I have no idea.

165yd 8 iron rode a little slope and came to rest 3 inches from the hole this morning. We were following a charity tournament and their closest to the pin marker was about 4 feet out, but we weren't part of the tournament so I didn't get that either, lol.

I have had a hole in one before so I may not qualify for the topic, but I came so close to making a hole in one 2 days ago. Downhill par 3 from 226, hit a perfect 5 iron draw, landed inches from the hole and rolled out to about a foot. My dad made his first hole in one on this same hole a few months ago.

Didn't have to wait long for my close call this year (which is number 26 without a hole in one).

154 Yard par 3, hit 3 inches to the right of the cup, bounced forward and spun back to end up about 2 inches to the left.

Have had 3 very close calls so far this year but they don't go in for me.
1) stopped 6 inches short of hole
2) Hit just in front of pin, bounced into pin and then back 18 inches in front of hole
3) Hit a foot behind cup, bounced forward and then spun back just missing the hole

A few others that looked like they had a chance but it was not to be.

I played Tobacco Road in NC a few weeks back.  Almost aced #8.  I cleared the bunkers in front of the green and the ball fed about 40 feet down to the hole from the right side of the picture.  Was fun to track it from the tee box 165 yards away.

17th at Plum Creek, CO.  Short (~110 that day) but the carry is all water to the green and it's always windy so it's tough not to always take extra club.

Hit one about 8 inches to the cup on a short 135 yrd par 3 last month. It was a scramble tourny and got closest to the pin on that hole. Won a dozen balls.
