Special day today..................

Ok this is basically for golfers and I know it's not good to brag but I had a hole in one today! 170 yard hole using a 6 iron. Four witnesses so that makes it even nicer, except for the round of drinks I had to buy. It's my 3rd lifetime hole in one.

Life is good.

Terrific!!! I've only known two golfers and one of them made a hole-in-one; I know that because you have to tell everyone. It's not really bragging.

The other one is famous for golfing in the snow; he never stopped and lived a very very long life.

Congrats, Dawg, but a better question might be:

Why did you continue to play another hole?

Congratulations!

I've not had one YET, but I hope to someday before I die (or get too old to play).

Your right, it can only be down hill after that. The next par 3 I hit another good shot only 8 feet from the pin and 3 putted the sob. Shot a 75 for the day which is good for me but it could have been a lot better. Could of....should of.....would of.........

Congratulations Dawg!!! Three of them wow!

I had one in 1999 playing a scramble hitting last with all three buddies in the sand traps, saying get us something to putt.

I never do follow directions well

Sweet!! Where can I get my adult beverage at?

The guy I work with was playing with his wife last week. I guess she was having a bad day on the links,until hoile 18, which was 140 yards from the ladie tee. She took a 3-wood and made an ace, and BEAT her husband by a stroke with that shot!!
