Which ball were you playing when you had your first Hole In One?


Recommended Posts

My first HIO as I remember was with a white, round golf ball.  I have no idea other then that.  I probably lost it before the end of the round.  And I had probably found that ball in the first place.  


I do remember the third hole, 163yd, 8 iron, at Verde Santa Fe in Cottonwood, AZ. Just west of Sedona where I lived.

these are the 3 I have. Funny thing is I don't play Pro v's as my usual ball, and I definitely don't choose number 4's on purpose. Just pure fluke. 1 is 2005 1 is 2006, and one is 2020

My only hole in one was during the final match of the club championship in 2015, TP5x. Sort of a passive brag, but it was awesome to do that with people watching. Still have the ball, my club at the time framed a copy of the original blueprint of the hole and its been hanging up in my room ever since.

First Broke 90 Ball! = Bridgestone e12 Contact

First Eagle Ball! = Vice Pro Neon Lime


No First Hole In One ball yet but almost slam dunked a Par 3 last week. Really close to adding the First Broke 80 ball. Hopefully this weekend. Love this game and can't wait to get a display case for "achievement balls" and souvenir balls from better "dream" courses.

I have played golf for nearly 50 years, just turned 62, and over the years I have had a fair number of short putts (less than 12 inches) for birdies but on 8/13/2021 I made my first hole in one on a 115 yd par 3 using a Titleist ProV1.  BTW 8/13 was a Friday, so for once Friday the 13th worked in my favor.


 I hope you fixed that pitch mark… yikes.
