So yesterday my wife got a hole in one. It was amazing! It was the first one I’ve ever seen in person. My question is how many of you have a spouse that has one without you having one? And how many years has it been? It’s only been a day and I’m already getting bitter :)

    My wife had a hole in one the first time she played on a course, albeit a par 3 course. It was the proverbial heavenly parabola and I was so proud. She didn’t think much of it, explaining that she was trying to hit it into the hole. It is the only one I have witnessed and I am still yet to have one.

    I had one before we were married. Then she had TWO. I caught her, and passed her, and she's caught me again, we each have three. And neither of us has seen any of the other's aces.

    My wife got one 4-5 yeard ago. It is the only one I've ever seen. I can't wait until I can stop her from ending any golf conversation with, "Which one of us has the hole in one?"

    Lol! I’ve heard that for 3 days now. A guy at my club got his 20 years after his wife. I think I’ll be divorced if it takes that long :)

    Neither my wife or I have one. And she was just commenting as recently as a week or two ago to a friend that she kinda hopes she doesn't get one before me because I play a lot more golf than she does, and she'd feel bad LOL

    Mrs. Ferguson has one, circa 2007.
    139 yards, two bounce and a little roll.
    I have seen 7 in my lifetime.

    I don't have one and I am not "sergio angry" about it either GD-IT.

    Neither my wife nor I have one, but I'm totally 100% convinced she's going to get one before me. I've been playing for 40+ years, she's been playing for two years. It's inevitable.

    A couple we’ve become friends with at my club has started playing more, they’ve got some young kids and spend all their time on the kids game and taking them to tournaments. The oldest is just at the age where she can watch the others for a while so we’ve gotten them out for a couple fun scrambles and outings. She probably hasn’t played more than 5 times in the 5 years previous to this, she’s played 8 rounds this year and has two! Her husband doesn’t have one yet 😂

    Did your dads buddy have one? I think I would have to give up the game if that happened!

    My wife has one. She hardly played back then, we were on holiday in Palm Springs. She was being treated for uveitis of one eye (an inflammation that needed all sorts of drops) and could not really see out of that eye. Took a 3 wood on a 120 yard par 3 and hit a nice draw, two bounce and in.

    Interestingly, our same foursome played in Florida a few years later and my buddy got an ace.

    I’ve been close a few times, but never had one. My wife, who plays maybe once every two years, got one a couple of years ago on a little 110 yard drop shot par 3. She hit driver...

    I don’t have one, but the thought of getting one doesn’t excite me either. I’d much rather have a personal best low round than an ace....

    I’d be happy for my wife if she got one- it would probably make her want to golf more

    We both started playing golf together 4 years ago, my wife had her 1st in 9/2017, then her 2nd in 6/2018. I witnessed both and I have none. Not feeling bitter but would like to have one of my own in this lifetime.
    She plays alot of golf (5x a week) while I work, so I expect her to have a higher chance of HIO. Whenever we are on a par 3, I have to pay extra attention incase she gets another ace. She plays all her par 3s for the hole (not just for the green), while I am just hoping to be anywhere near the green.
    I don’t hear about her practicing at the range at all but she is a little better each time I play with her. She is currently a 7 hcp and has started playing hybrid/men’s tee to challenge herself, but the extra yardage make no difference - she still plays to her handicap. Our home couse has 27 holes. Last season her goal was to par every hole once, this year, it’s birdie and she has already birdied all the par 5s and par 3s multiple times. I wish I can devote that much time to golf...

    My wife and I are both avid golfers and we each had 2 holes-in-one before we met. Ever since we've known each other (21 years) neither of us added to that total. She aced the 4th hole in the final round of the club championship at our course Saturday and was rubbing it in pretty good. I was happy for her but secretly bitter at the same time. That is until yesterday when I aced the same hole! I haven't stopped gloating.

    I don't have one yet and although my wife has her own set, she has yet to play an actual course (just the range). If she got one before i did i would never hear the end of it. Even if i got one eventually or several her response would be, "Well, who had one first?!"

    My wife got a hole in one 15 years ago and anytime I offered a tip or correction ( shes a 29 handicap, I'm a 5 right now) She always remind me she had one and I didn't. Well in the past two years I now have two and her handicapp has dropped down to 20...Things are good now

    My wife has one; I've witnessed hers and one more. Got it on her 3rd season golfing.
    Was pretty fun, she got it with her parents, and myself in the foursome - her parents have been golfing for >20 years and neither of them has one, needless to say it was entertaining for everyone.

    How long did it take for the group to go from happy for her to upset that she got one so fast?
