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" ......
