G,day guys an happy new year to. All
Well it's been about 16 yrs since I started playin golf and yesterday whilst playing the vines I got my first ever .. Hole in one : )))

Came to the hole no 8 .. 152 mtr .. Been having a long struggle with my irons but just lately I have been getting them out and putting a bit of effort into them again .. I pulled out a seven iron which is normally 2 clubs lower than I would have hit before but I thought sod it give it some.. And away it went ..started out right .. Came back with a slight draw, landed on green at which point my eyes failed me .. Then the guys I was playing with just erupted ..lol .. I still didn't believe it and thought maybe it was just out of site .. But nah it was definatly in the hole !!!!
I wouldn't have forgotten that in a hurry ,, but New Year's Day .. What a freakin start : ))

Good stuff Welly.

 

The rest of the year is truly going to be a letdown after that.

What does it matter, a HIO is HIO.
Intended to break 90 this year, not going well.

Well done Welly.  Should do what my mate did last year when he got his first ace.  Went home and told the missus that he deserved a new car and promptly bought a nice Lexus.  He will never forget it.

 

Like you he didn't see the finish but, as the seeing eye dog for the old farts I play with, I did.  We play early and you should have seen his face as we approached the green and he could see the path through the dew.

But there's an extra level of excitement to think your name is going on an Honour Board.

 

Anyways well done mate, it's an amazing feeling.

It matters...it doesn't count otherwise.

If its not comp, may as well call it a Kim Jong Ill...he had 18 of them in a round...wasn't a comp though!
