    Mine was uphill and I thought I had missed long because I saw the ball bounce. I was pleasantly surprised when I got to the green.

    I've had 7 ACES in golf the last 30+ years, and 2 were over 200 yards both with a 4W, one was 235 and the other 215.

    Last few years I've a lot of ACES, it's what I call my #1 girlfriend at the moment now, you know, she's my ACE.

    Par 3 130. Clanked it off of the flagstick and that's where it landed. I was mad and happy at the same time. Lol

    It's a good thing the ball didn't go in that hole with the pink flagstick. Had it gone in, you'd have to turn in your "man card"!!!!:D

    Oh... Great shot! And, welcome to ShotTalk!!!!

    I had an ace the first time I went golfing on a real field on a 176y hole surrounded by a lake .I decided then I was meant to play this game hehehe. After that, it just has never happened again. I have lost at least 20 balls on that same stupid hole since then and the closest to an Ace gas been like five ft

    I've been chasing an ace my entire golf career. Closest I've been is a lip out on a 127 yarder. That was on my 13th birthday. Which was almost 20 years ago.

    Same here. I've only had a smell of the hole. I nearly slam dunked a 9i from 145 once. It tore the front lip out of the cup, hit the flag and bounced back completely off the green. Made par.

    No Ace for me so far.

    Closest I've been was probably on one of the outings. I believe it was an 8i slight draw...I have no idea what the yardage was. I think I ended up maybe 2 feet away? @nututhugame has a much better memory when it comes to this stuff than I do...you remember it?

    I had a 5i, up a hill, into the wind go about 210 and end up about 4 inches short of rolling in. I knew it looked good as it went beyond where I could see it, but it was way better than I figured. That was my second shot on a par 5 though. So I've been closer to an albatros than to an Ace.

    I remember. I think you and I both hit PW actually. The hole is around 150 to the center and the pin was front with a little helping breeze. I can't remember who the 3'rd was in our group (Splooge maybe?), but I though we all put it on... each one closer than the last with E's damn near going in.

    This was on the second hole after we cross the road into the parking lot right? If so, I believe you're right on the PW.

    I believe so. And now that I think about it, wasn't it Jake that was with us? That was the "well there's that draw" round. Same round he pitched it right into the cart.

    Yup, pretty sure you're right. They all tend to blend together for me after a while. The cart shot was hilarious.

    Yeah, they're starting to blend for me now as well.

    Somewhere in the early '90s I hit one to within two inches. I also backed one up over the cup somehow.
