    So I was out in the glorious sunshine today at my course Whitsand Bay, a lynx course in Cornwall.

    Shot a gross 75 (nett 66 -4) which included a lovely hole in one on the 120 yard 10th hole!!

    Second hole in one I’ve had, the other coming at the same hole a few years back however this time I was playing in a group so made it much better (and more expensive🍻)

    It’s definitely a massive relief when the day comes hopefully yours isn’t too far away!

    unfortunately you can’t see the ball drop from the tee, I knew I struck a nice wedge shot and approaching the green and not being able to see the ball made me confident it had gone in but it’s not the same as being able to watch it disappear and have a celebration from the tee!

    Anyway the pint still tasted that bit sweeter after the round

    Nice one mate. I’ve only ever had one and that was after nearly 15 years of playing. Hope you don’t get chopped too bad if you were in a comp. I got cut from 10 to 6 with a 74 for 64 many years ago.

    Awesome stuff mate, i have had 4 holes in one over the years, always much better when you’re with a group! Cracking round 🙂 Haven’t managed to get out at all this year so far! Been so lazy with it, weather hasn’t been amazing and course a bit worse for wear i think but hopefully get back in to it soon!

    As a kid I hit a hole in one on a pitch and putt course, off the tee, nearly died laughing in shock lol. I tried a few rounds with my bro but he’s mad on it, I haven’t really got it to hit a wood straight or with any control. If I ever pick one up again, I don’t care where in the world you are, look out, it might be heading your way. I’m that shit with a wood. However I do rate people who can viably try and make a wood do what they want it to, give or a take a bit of slice now and then. I also remember at the driving range, my bro-in-law running like a mad man at the tee, swinging and launching that ball skyward until it couldn’t be seen, by anyone. I reckon it landed somewhere in wales.

    I was cut from 14 all the way down to 9 after shooting a +2 gross (-12 nett😂) in a comp, they cut me with ‘external circumstances’ again that was in great playing conditions.

    i don’t play enough to even be able to play off 9 most rounds, I average around +12-15 so another cut would be pretty devastating, it just seemed to be my day yesterday!

    I’d still be counting the pitch and putt, anything from a tee down in one counts!!

    Im not a massive fan of woods myself, have a 3 wood in my bag but only ever comes out if the driver is misbehaving. More of a fan of a punch with a low iron down there to keep it in play😂

    I should of been off about 8 at best. I couldn’t play off 6. Not good enough lol. I’d be about 12 now. That was my dream round. I was level gross with 4 to play off whites as well. Absolutely shitting myself. Finished bogey par bogey par. They made an example of me. Sounds like they did to you. Should only chop you 0.3 every shot under par as you will know. That round when you have it is amazing though.

    Nice one of the hole in one  I’m lucky enough to have had 2 in my golfing life  My first one was lucky kicked off a bunker and went straight left and went in. 2nd one was a good shot.

    What does everyone play of handicap wise on here.

    Meant to be playing tomorrow but forecast is terrible. Also was meant to be playing on Saturday but going to watch Everton away at Newcastle. So going to be a couple of weeks since my last game.

    Just need to get back playing fully before the season starts.

    So it happened again!!

     

    Same hole, Same club, another hole in one on the 10th at my local. I was going to celebrate when I watched it drop but time was just in a practice round on my own so when I looked around and seen nobody there to see it I just chuckled to myself in disbelief instead.

    i did joke with the golf pro and said how many more do I need to get before I have some sort of placard on the tee box as a hattrick all on the same hole must be some kind of record!

    I have the golf balls in a cabinet at home but as there is now 3 I wanted to present them a bit better, was thinking maybe trying to get some glass cube boxes to put them in with a date of when each was achieved??

    I’d rather be on my own mate. If i get one at the course i play in a comp it would cost me at least two bottles of whiskey.
