My Second Hole In One
Posted: 16 April 2012
The Course: Cobblestone Creek Country Club, Victor NY 14564.
The Hole: Hole #2 Par 3 from the Blue Tee playing at 167 yards.
The Club: Titleist AP1 5 iron
Ball: Titleist NXT #1
The Shot: A high draw that dropped like a dart onto the front edge of the green, one bounce right into the cup. To me, it looked like it bounced and just disappeared, but my wife Barbara said “I think it went in", I grabbed the range finder for the magnifier to checkout the green, but could not see the ball anywhere. We drove the cart down toward the hole, I got out and Barbara said “don’t bother bringing your putter; I’m telling you, it’s in the hole”. I kind of crept up on the hole like somehow if I approached it too fast, the ball would not be in there, and there it was nestled right up against the flag stick with my marking face up. We hugged and high fived, and the guys over on the 8th green congratulated me and yelled over “you owe us a drink” Gladly I said, and off we went to hole 3. I could not have been happier.
Thanks for the opportunity to share, John E Neumann
