I was going to blog today about an analysis of tournament strength in this week’s Golf World magazine. I’ll write about that tomorrow. Something else came up.
I got a hole-in-one today. My first in 49 years of playing golf. I’ve sunk irons from the fairway before, but never from the tee.
It was at the Auburn Golf Course in Salem, Oregon, and executive course, on the 6th hole, 58 yards, with a pitching wedge.
Yes, I know. 58 yards. But that doesn’t make it any easier. And there’s still a 1 on the scorecard.
So. Along with my birdie on the Road Hole (I’ll tell you about that sometime), I have a few things to talk about when someone asks me what my best shot ever was.
