I've been playing this crazy game since 1971... hit so many inside of a foot or so that I lost count long ago.

I have actually hit two in the cup on the fly but they both popped out. :shocked:

One of them actually had a grey stripe all the way around the ball from going all the way around the rim of the cup. Had a bunch of witnesses for that one, they couldn't believe the ball came out.

I've hit many inside a couple of feet, one or two that actually hit inside a foot of the hole and ended up behind the hole, somehow missing the pin, but never hit one in.

I've seen two from playing partners, one of which was by a guy playing his second round ever.

135m Par 3 up hill. 9 iron high draw, bent around the flagstick and landed where u see it. The ball hopped out of the divot, and spun back about 4ft away. I've had others inside 3ft but this is the most spectacular of them all.

I never thought i'd see a shot like the one i hit this past saturday at a course in stone mountain, it was a short par 3, chose to try my 8 which I cant hit very well, but it was the right club. I hit it, prayed, and it came down, rolled, and stopped within 6 inches! I couldnt believe what just happened... putted in for a birdie

tried to get my GF excited about my experience but .... not as much shared enthusiasm :(
