5 or 6 years ago playing a fund raiser scramble. Blind dog leg par 4. I'm told hit it over those trees to cut the corner. I proceed to miss my target line so bad I think it's OB right. Friend says no I think that's pretty good. Get to the green, my buddies dad is the group ahead and he says "here's your ball (2FT). It rolled between my feet while putting and was 2" outside the cup for a hole in 1."
Last summer at my home course I played 2 rounds on a Sat. 290 yard par 4. Both times scared the cup. Both 2-3' Eagles. ( I don't think I have even hit the green since then. I have now stopped going for it. Iron - Wedge- good chance at birdie- at worst Par.)
Related one of my biggest irrational fears is while playing casual or sneaking out for just a couple holes, hitting a hole in 1 that isn't really a hole in one. ( this can be debated) But making it on a retee of a par 3, playing solo and playing multiple balls, or just playing 2-3 holes) Or making one with no witness.

Early this summer I went to visit my mom in the villages and went out to play a couple of rounds. The bottom of the pin was hidden behind a bunker. I heard the ball hit the flag but thought it ricocheted off a good distance. I was pleasantly surprised. I was playing by myself so the only witness was the guy walking his dog off of the course

Recently Played with another single, who is a low handicap, we have played together numerous times over the last 2-3 years. The last time we played he was in no miss mode, every shot went close to where he was aiming, shot 2 under. Me not so good, I did put one to 2 ft on a short par 3 to snag a birdie to his par. Nice to win one hole. We watched the ball land 2 ft directly in front the hole and it ended up 2 ft behind the hole, how it missed the hole I'm not sure. That brief moment of anticipation, is what keeps me coming back.

PW high tiny cut and it goes straight in the hole... And then bounces 5m or so in the air! Comes to rest a good 20ft from the pin with a fast downhill putt. At least I made the par...
With the wind and the drop to the hole that ball must have just been coming down dead vertically. Not a pitch mark to be seen.

Yes, it finally happened. After 23 years in the game, I finally got one.
9-iron for 151 yards, landed 6 feet short and rolled straight in. Good strike, no luck, all skill
Good luck to all. Don't give up hope!
