I Hate This Guy
A golfing novice got two holes in one
the course of five holes. Oddly enough, he didn't see either ball go in."The flag was over a ridge, so you couldn't see the ball after it went over the ridge. Rick looked at me and said, 'Boy, that could be in the hole.'
"When we got to the green, I saw Rick's ball, but I didn't see mine. I thought: 'Oh, my God, could it have happened? Could I have gotten a hole-in-one?'
I have played thousands of rounds of golf, and ironically, the closest I ever came to getting an ace was probably on about my 10th hole ever. It was a par 3 180-yard hole along the lake at Ramsey Country Club. I was about 15 years old, sneaking on the course with a friend of mine. I hit a two-iron, and the ball seemed to go in exactly the direction I wanted it to, landed on the green and rolled exactly the way I had hoped. I honestly expected the ball to disappear into the cup. When I walked up, it had stopped about 2 inches shy of the hole. If only I'd had my Wheaties that morning!
