  • My First Ace

    Finally, it happened.
    Took almost 20 yrs since I skipped the first hole, not to tee up in front of people, and started to play at 2nd hole with my high school buddy at Waterloo Conestoga course.

    Yesterday,
    Ussher’s Creek - 3H, Par 153, Blue T, 5 Iron

    Early teed up, not warmed enough yet, facing wind, so, ya maybe, one more club up, hit it little fade, bounced couple times, and disappeared, my son was screaming like it must be hole-in-one. What does he know. You are only 10 yrs old. It’s not flat green, of course, must be rolled over the hill.
    Approaching to red tee for him, and I didn’t see it, and my heart was starting pumping hard. Reached to green and grabbed wedge/putter and searched around green first and my eye sight was already foggy, cant focus anything, I only wanted to check inside the hole.
    Then, I screamed.

    Congrats Kiedo . . . that is awesome and great explanation. Now, trying for #2 . . . Hope your son got a stiff drink . . .
    If you think it's hard to meet new people, try picking up the wrong golf ball.

      Congratulations! Awesome stuff , and to have your son with you when it happened, double bonus!

            This isn't a dress rehearsal. Enjoy yourself. There's no do-over.

                Congrats.

                Fortunately there are no rules limiting the number of golf balls you can carry during a match!
