    Talking My first ace!!!!!!

    So I played a round at IQ this morning that was interrupted by pouring rain for about 5-10 minutes and shot a -4, one of my best. I met up with Martin mid-round and then played a full round with him afterward. I had been -7 through 12 the first round this morning and then completely blew up with 4 bogies and a birdie to finish out. Going into hole 12 the second round I was at -6, convincing myself I wouldn't melt down again if I went to -7 on that hole. I thought my drive looked pretty good, and I only missed the little tree on the left by about 4 inches. I figured I would be down by the basket on the left side, but then we heard a faint ringing sound. I couldn't believe I had really hit it! My first ace, and I had to walk halfway to the basket to even see it in there! It was awesome! Threw a 179g '06 (baby) Roc. Once I can Bluetooth the pics off my phone I'll post 'em.
    I'm a professional 120-foot putter, as long as I'm at Iroquois and as long as I'm on hole 14.

    Fantastic shot - cut the first corner as tight as possible -

    knew it was looking good and then there was that long delayed chain jingle

    congrats again -

    we had just been talking about getting aces just a few holes earlier and then it happens

    so my last two rounds at IQ - i have been witness to an ACE - Reilly on hole 12 - and Wildt on hole 15 -

    If anyone is looking for an ACE this year I seem to be a lucky charm - gonna start charging folks to play rounds with me, I suppose

    I almost had that happen at muldraugh last year, standing at hole 1 talking about aceing it, then banged off the front of the basket...

    Are you gonna be at leagues tonight? I haven't got an ace this year so I'll put you in my group

    Awesome shot thats no easy hole to hit. I just hit my first one on the 7th and then 10 days later on hole one my first throw of the day I threw a Champ Boss from the shorts and it hit center chains and fell out the back so I was glad it didnt hit because I would have shit myself if I hit my first two in ten days. Some people go forever with out hitting an Ace so I felt real good about nailing mine within the first year of play. Martin I got 5 bucks come on out!!
