    Default I got a hole in one yesterday while golfing!

    What a feeling!!

    Was golfing the Highland Marshes in Ottawa and sunk the ball! In honesty - I didn't see it go in (due to pin placement), so when I walked up looking for the ball - I was getting pissed off as I thought I'd lost (yet another) ball that day - and was getting even hotter because I saw it land - clearly - on the green.

    While looking, my boss walked up to the hole to pull the pin and said - holy shit Scott, your ball is in the f*ucking hole!! You just shot a hole in one!! DAMN cool.

    Unfortunately I didn't get to buy everyone a drink as I had to catch a flight home (and was running late). I've committed to buying my foresome a drink during our next get together. It was also likely a good thing that I didn't have to...I was part of a tournament with +700 golfers!! THAT would have been expensive.

    Hey congrats dude! That's friggn' awesome. If it was in a tourney, it's a bummer it wasn't a "get a hole in one, get a new car" hole but the fact that you got one is something you can take to the grave. A rare feat!

    I got one about 14 years ago but haven't had one since. Came close a few times, but to have it actually drop is indeed a rarity. Congrats buddy.

    Thanks...actually this is the very first tournament I've been in (and I've been in a few) where they didn't offer prizes for this type of stuff.

    That said, my best friend (an avid player) asked what I did w/ the ball...to which I replied in honesty "I tee'd it upon the next hole and proceeded to send it into the drink"...I guess I was supposed to frame it. I'm laying blame on such a poor follow up to the Crown and gingers the group in front of me fed in celebration of the event.

    Someone said the odds of winning 'the' lottery is better then a hole in one. Now, don't get me wrong - I'm thrilled w/ my fluke - however I'd prefer the $50M being offered in this weeks lottery...that'd buy me a LOT of rounds of golf to sink a similar shot.

    Congrats! I go apes&%t if I even hit the green on the first bounce. I can't imagine what I'd do if got an ace. I'd probably drive it into the drink on my next shot too.

    I'm sure Obama was there to witness it.

    Sorry, bad joke.

    Seeing that I can barely hit a golf ball, this is very cool!

    I've been playing for over 25 years now and I've never had a hole in one. I hate you.

    J/K. Congrats!

    Well, maybe I do still hate you a little bit.

    Congrats, and fuck you at the same time, LOL. 18 years and I'm still waiting...

    Came close once - landed short and rolled up to within about 6 inches of the hole, dead center on line too. Was a downhill par 3 and could see it tracking - from the tee it looked like it was hanging over the edge hole, LOL.

    Other than that, maybe 2 ft is the closest, but wasn't on line. You suck.
