Had my first hole in one today! The 183 yard par 3 at my home course, #14. Hit a 6 iron, high fade landed 6 ft in front of the hole, and rolled right in. =)))

Congrats! And that's a huge 6 iron. I'd need to hammer a 5 iron to get there

Congratulations! I have been waiting a long time to hit one of those but hopefully it will come soon enough.

I was just coming off of 3 pars and a bog, so I was pretty happy with my play at the time, and felt powerful. My 5, when I feel powerful and it's hot outside, would've easily landed on the back of the green and rolled off. The 6 was the right choice. Had I hit a draw, it would've probably landed near the same spot, maybe a bit further, but rolled way off.

Man up and get those senior flex shafts outta there! ;)


Well done on the ace. I have three, but none with more than a 7 iron in my hands. It's such a sweet feeling when something actually goes right for a change!

Well playing 5 times a week at a golf course that I work at, for the rest of this summer, will hopefully give me a few more chances at a second. I got the one on the toughest par 3 of the course (toughest visually, not handicap), so hopefully I'll get a good chance at another on one of the easier par 3s!

I dunno - I made one 10 years ago, and have not hit one inside a foot since then. Had plenty of 2-3 footers, but nothing close.
