    This is certainly off-topic.

    After nearly 29 years of playing golf (no Tiger here), I made my first hole in one yesterday. Bought a round of drinks for my playing buddies and we yucked it up the rest of the day. I was beginning to think it wasn't ever going to happen.

    Thought the rest of the golfers here may enjoy!:D

    Congratulations! You mean there is still hope? Been playing a little longer than you, came close but not there yet.

    Thanks STEVE07 and RubyRed,

    It does have to start with a well struck shot, but the rest is just pure luck, still...looking for #2 now...LOL!!

    Luck has more to do with it IMO. My brother-in-law hit a shot on a par 3 it landed 10 yards short of a bunker, rolled through the bunker and then rolled into the hole! Worst shot I ever saw in my life! But like they say, " not how but how many.:s

    Well done on the hole in one i do not currently play golf but i did as a young lad and i know there is a wee bit of luck mixed in with a wee bit of skill to get the ball in the hole from the tee

    I guess a hole in one is like making your first million dollars, the first million is the hardest, after they come easier but I wouldn't know about either first hand
