I made my 1st hole-in-one on July 15th 2007. It was the coolest single thing that has happened to me from a personal sports perspective. Below is the story about the hole-in-one:
The hole was playing around 140 according to the Sky Caddie. I selected my 8 iron and placed the ball on the turf, no tee. I like to play it that way to simulate fairway conditions. I had been hitting the ball extremely well and felt very relaxed hitting the shot. The flag was slightly right of center. I usually hit a fade so I lined the ball a bit left. The shot was fairly straight with an ever so slight left to right movement. Read the rest of this entry »
Played a round of 10 holes at Sterling Golf Club, a little par 3 course in Sterling Virginia. The course greens are in excelent condition but miss them and your ball will roll forever. No worries. It just adds more of a challenge. I hit holes 1-4 and hopped over to holes 13-18. It was hot! The humidity is coming back. It was absolutely gorgeous here for the last 2 weeks. Thinking of hitting the course for another nine shortly.
