A hole in one but not quite?

Posted by: user80078 | Sat 28th Sep 2013 11:48 | Last Reply

Holed in one this morning but not quite as I would have wanted. Playing the first 9, I holed out on the third hole, but at the red flag (second 9) and not the yellow (first 9). My chum said I saved myself a few bob on drinks. Isn't it strange that there is none of jubilation when it's the wrong flag. As I already have one hole in one to my name the disappointment is not so intense.......

I have never had a 'Proper' hole-in-one yet!

But I teed off on the 9th hole at Stapleford Abbotts (Abbotts Course). A dreadful tee shot, shot out to the right and over the 13th green.

Once my playing partner's had stopped laughing, and played their shots we went over to find my ball.

The 13th hole is a par three and a group of golfer's were teeing off.

As we let them play their shots we could not find my ball.

The group playing the 13th hole said "Are you playing a Srixon?"

So there it was, in the hole on the 13th green from the 9th tee!!!

Keep at it Russel, That hole in one will come. I often regale my chums with details of mine when standing on the 5th at RAF Waddington G.C. (of course they've heard it before, often. lol)

Never had a real one but a few months ago took my tee shot on a par 3, splash in the water. Was so annoyed I literally just chucked another ball down on the tee, took a swing and what happens. In it goes. Nice par!!

I think that just about sums up golf Ben. Nice par as you say though!
