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.
