    Hey guys,

    Just posted my first ace in this year's edition of TW when I played online against one of our CC members (PCAR76). It happened at the 8th hole at Valhalla. Tournament settings, Flagstick setup hard.

    Although I shot 60, I don't really care about the rest of the round!

    Pardon me if there is another similar thread already started on the forum but it would be nice for everyone to post their hole(s) in one history like this:

    When: April 7th 2012
    Course: Valhalla
    Hole: 8
    Difficulty: Tournament
    Flagstick: hard
    Comment: Felt good coming off an Eagle to ace that one!


    Just had my second hole in one:

    This was a crazy one as there was a 28 MPH right to left wind, slightly downwind also. I aimed to make sure I would stay below the pin, made good contact and it looked slightly left but it seemed to be exactly what I wanted. BUT, the ball continued to go left a little, climbed the hill about 8 feet then broke to the right and dropped calmly into the hole. A beauty... I was just a lucky bastard on that one, believe me! :p

    When: April 19th 2012
    Course: St Andrews
    Hole: 11
    Difficulty: Tournament
    Flagstick: expert
    Comment: I'm a lucky bastard!

    Can't wait to read yours.

    Cheers,

    Rog

    SkinniePost has like 43 already.

    Ha, I wish... Those are mostly chip or pitch-ins. I only have 4 Hole In Ones, at this point.

    Congrats. I only have 4 or 5 aces between TW12 and 13, mostly due to never playing Amateur or Pro settings. Never had an ace on Tournament mode, so great job.

    Thanks CapEm16. Are you the one that shot -37 in the exhibition tourney? I didn't play that one but would change my ace against your consistency. ;)

    Yeah, I got hot at the right time and started great out of the gate. But dang, I sure would like an ace on Tournament difficulty...or an Oosthuiz-atross at Augusta.

    That was a flaming golf display for sure from your part. As for Oosthuizen, it really was something special!

    Zero hole in ones for me in like the past 3 or 4 years of playing Tiger.

    :(

    Really? Humm I guess it's better being consistent than having the occasional ace! Lol

    I usually get 2-4 a year.It used to drive me nuts the hole in one achievement to unlock equipment.

    I got one the other day on a par 4 @The Old White,but I'm not counting it ,since it was on Pro from the reds.My favorite similar one was, I went home for my friends wedding,and we played for first time in years ( when I used to suck lol).They play amateur form reds/blues,but for some reason always play skinns,which is stupid,cause most of the time all the skins carry over and all it takes is one mistake a game.So we were tied until the 15th Par 4 hole,when I sunk it.The impressions on their faces was priceless :D
