Wow an amazing day!  One suggestion.  I had a Seamus headcover commemorating my hole in one embroidered on a driver head cover

Awesome stuff.

Be sure to reach out to the company that makes your irons and the ball you used.  A lot of times they'll send you some kind of swag.  Callaway and Srixon sent me some stuff when I had mine.

Happy Birthday. I'm impressed and a little bit bitter jealous. You say almost 40 years but that doesn't quite cover it. What would be your estimate on the number of rounds it took?

Interesting question that I haven't pondered.  Thanks to my wonderful hard working wife, I retired at 46 in 2005 and my rounds played significantly increased.  I also became a much better player after retirement.  Sometime in 2007 I had my lowest handicap ever at 9.  Much higher now because just don't enjoy practice any longer.

Congrats!  Normally on your birthday...people buy you drinks...but if you make a hole-in-one...you'd have to buy them drinks.  Are you net-net neutral on the libations then??
