Let's start from scratch and label it as it should be labelled! ...NOT A HOLE IN ONE ....but....A POLE IN ONE!!!
Hopefully the "Happy Paper", "The Daily Sun" will see this and change it for what it is!
Have a great day!
Take it up with USGA. They make the rules and they say it is acceptable under current condition. It is NOT A DISGRACE for golf as you say.

The other day we heard that someone ahead of us in our group had a "hole in one". We were laughing and making jokes. At the end of the round we found out it was our oldest player (87). He was as happy as heck. There was no way we were going to take it away from him. So as the saying goes "dont hate the player, hate the game"

I play with golfers and non golfers. Golfers won't take it. Non Golfer will. Both are ok with that.

Played TDS today and they had it set that way, I hope they're doing it on all the courses.

I've purposely been avoiding getting my first hole in one until it could actually go into the hole.

And the Gin mills are open so you can buy a round?

To each his or her own. Whatever makes one feel good and fall asleep quickly when their head hits the pillow. And besides, if one decides to call hitting the raised cup a whole in one, they don’t have to buy everyone at the 19 hole a drink after the round since the 19th hole is currently closed. All good, swing on
