So ......

 

During yesterdays comp round up at Beacy, I hit an 8 iron on the short par 3, 6th hole (130m), and came up about 5 metres short of the flagstick.

 

So with the tee markers in the same position this morning, but a slightly stiffer breeze into our faces, I teed the ball up about a club length behind the markers, and "clubbed up", to my all time favourite "Par 3" club .......... my Mizuno MP68 7 iron.

 

With the breeze blowing pretty much directly into us, I aimed a metre left of the pin location, which was mid right half of the green today, and played for the tiniest of draws.

 

I managed to hit down on the back of it nicely (I've been working on that of late), with just an easy swing, and got a nice bit of zip on the ball as it flew on a fairly low flight that just curled a tiny fraction rightwards, as it honed in on the flagstick.

 

Sadly because its uphill to a raised green, we lost sight of the ball as it landed very close we figured.

 

A short stroll up the pathway, and yep, in, it had gone!!

 

So that would make it, lets see now ............... my 3rd Hole In One ..........

 

All of them have been on the very same hole, and all of them with the same Mizuno MP 68 7 iron. (Two with TM Lethals, todays was with a Titleist NXT Tour)

 

As one of regular playing partner has often reminded me  ........ "I don't know why you ever hit any other club on that hole" ...... :D

Thanks guys.

 

T'was nice to do it alongside the regular playing partners today, as I reckon they get a bit more excited about than me. (I thought Wasabipea was about to wet himself) :)

Good stuff Ace. I also am very fond of my mp60 7i, and only hope one day I will have a similar tale of one actually going in. Your thought process and attention to detail when planning the shot was inspiring.

Yeah, there was a bit of strategy to it this morning, which thankfully worked out nicely.

 

I reckon I've played 2 of the HIO's with a fair bit of thought and strategy, and the other onee ..... with not so much thought :huh:

 

Perhaps I should try and do that with every shot I play on course from now on, rather than just do it on the 6th hole..... :)

Thanks Goldenbrisket ...........

 

I was just trying to keep up with Wasa this morning, as it was some pairs aggregate Stableford event.

 

I had wiped the 5th, and Wasa commented that he and Grumpy Mark were about to get out to a good lead, so the pressure was on to hit "a good one".

Thanks Micky ...........

 

I really try and focus on the 6th hole these days, not so much because of my "past history" there ..... but because it  often plays "between" clubs for me, or the wind can come from a couple of directions up near the green, and you can't really feel it back down in the sheltered tee area. But yes, thinking helps at times Micky, and sometimes its a curse ..... :D

gaz well done on ya ace mate and doesn't matter how well ya hit it or bad the shot really was the result was a hole in one

 

 

at Bacchus Marsh we have a hole that plays similar to beacy's 6th except this one is not an uphill shot, but  can be an inbetween type shot and many don't realise how much the wind makes a difference on this par 3 of ours because on the tee box it can be calm  but you don't realise what is happening above  as the green sits in the gully on the 5th the wind just swirls above the green

 

 

buthey  well done and I think only carlton supporters should only be the ones to get hole in ones
