Last week I had 2 shots land pin high right of the pin and then both spun back towards the pin. Ended up with a 20" birdie putt and 12" birdie put. Made both of course but would rather have a hole-in-one and 3 putt one of the two. 13,000ish chances and still no hole-in-one. Woe is me!

On a bright note one my golf partners had his first after a very long wait. It was the first I have ever witnessed in person and it looked good from start to finish. I at least had the presence of mind to get a picture of him on the tee box after the shot and then a video of the walk to the hole ending with him pulling his ace out of the hole. He got off easy on the buying drinks part as well which I was happy to see.

It was a mid length par 3 (175-ish yards), the ball landed a few feet short, rolled up, hit the pin, and ended up about an inch away.
Unfortunately the person before me didn't put the flagstick in correctly and it was leaning towards the front of the cup... Oh well, maybe one day it'll happen!

Par 3, 188yrds. It landed a few yards short and rolled past the pin, from the tee it looked like it going to go straight in but just missed. The ball, hole, ball mark where all in a straight line

Closest this year was probably 7 feet. It was pin high at least.

1 F*#&'n inch...It was behind the cup as well, flag stick between me and the ball. The only silver lining is that is was during a member/guest...that would have been expensive.

Less than 2 inches twice... from the tee I thought it was in. I’ve hit so many good golf shots, I think my first Ace will come from a kick of the sprinkler head

Almost got one yesterday!  155 yds over marsh with a 6 iron on a day where it was 45 degrees out and a slight wind in my face. My ball landed on the side of the cup (divot as proof) and bounced about 5 left of the hole. I sank the birdie but DAMN!
