Charles Messer's tale of his Ace

I was playing in the two-man scramble tournament with Mike Matthieu, Rowland Hill, and John Meyer.  The 13th was playing to Pin Position #2, back right into about 5 mph of wind.  Rowland had the honor and hit 5-iron to about 20 feet, left and slightly short.  John then hit a solid 6-iron, high with a soft draw that landed over the crest, 12-14 feet right of the pin.  We expected his ball to kick towards the pin.  I then hit a solid 5-iron, high and straight, that landed over the crest on a line that was about two feet right of the pin.  Mike hit his ball pin-high, about 35 feet left.  Only two balls were visible from the tee.      
John and Mike were in carts, and Rowland and I were walking.  As John drove up to the green he turned and shouted, "There's only one ball on the green!"  We were all on the green but we knew what he meant, that only one ball was visible on the back-right part of the green.  He then looked behind the green and shouted, "There's only one ball up here.  You might have made a hole-in-one!"  
John then waited on the fringe until we all arrived.  There was a ball about 5 feet right of the pin, and together we walked to the pin.  At the bottom of the cup was a Titleist 3 that was marked with a purple dot.  My golf ball.  I began shouting, "One!  One!  I made a hole in one!" 
 Rowland and I found a fresh 1/2-inch deep pitch mark that was on my line and about a foot short of the green, on a slight down-slope.  He said, "Your ball probably went in center-cut."  

On any normal golf day, John's birdie would have been excellent golf.  But yesterday it seemed anti-climatic.  And I couldn't resist saying on the next tee, "You guys made birdie and lost the honor."

Our Men's Club Treasurer, Pat Krull, used his Pitching Wedge from the White Tees at 120 yards as witnessed by Brian Rank. This is Pat's first ace in 20 years of golf. Only problem is, Pat did it when no one else was around to pick his wallet clean at the bar ...



February 23rd 2014 at Buena Ventura. Hole #5

John Parker. 114 yds using a gap wedge. "Cost me over 100 dollars at the bar. Worth every penny."
