And when is a comp not a comp? When it's a Wednesday Pro Shop run comp not a Saturday Club comp. I don't have my name on the honour board for my hole in one.
A HIO is a HIO.
And now I come to think about it a bit more, I just might enjoy a HIO in a social round with old friends more than I would in a comp with 3 complete strangers. It's nice to share magical moments with good friends I reckon.
I do agree with you about being with mates, I was playing in a two with my best mate. He was present at the time, but was on his phone sending a message to a girl for Valentines Day...and missed seeing it go in.
