A Hole in One!

I’ve been knocking those little white balls around for seven years. And this evening it finally happened.  A hole in one!

But no one was there.  Not a witness to behold the event. So now I can finally answer the question: If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

Surprisingly, NO.

It looked beautiful as it was sailing toward its target.  I saw it roll up on the green but then it rolled out of view. As I walked to the green, I thought, “well there must be a little ridge there at the front”.  As I got closer I still saw no ball on the green.  I was silent.   I walked up to the flag.  There was my Callaway resting at the back of the hole.  A beautiful sight honored in silence.

  1. Congrats Duane! In fishing, it is said that it takes a thousand casts to catch a Tiger Muskie (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muskellunge)… while I am not certain of the ratio of fishing casts to golf swings, I am certain you have earned and deserve that hole in one. May this not be your last!

  2. Only seven years. I’ve been playing for about 30 years and still do not have one. However, just so you know, I don’t think it should count when you play from the womens tee box.
