Default It finally happened, A hole in one !!!!!


Well it finally happened , A hole in one ......Yesterday on a 94 yard hole with a pitching wedge..........Hate to blow my own horn but I've waited nearly 45 years for one of these and finally got it......It was a little expensive as my golf partners are scotch drinkers and they showed no mercy on me...from now on i'm carrying a bottle of cheap scotch in my golf bag in case it ever happens again....
Anyway that leaves me with two questions ,,,#1 is does anyone know how long a bottle of scotch will last in a golf bag....and #2 refers to the existing bar bill, Does anyone know anything about reverse mortgages......

Yes it was a Titleist pro v1x Fumar

That is nothing short of inspirational. Congratulations. The Scotch will last proportionate to the sampling you do before your next hole in one.

the great ONE fumar....

Way to go...one less thing for your bucket list. Gee, I just started playing golf in July of 07....doing the math and based on your experience I'll be 98 when I get my first hole in one.

Keep 3 scotch miniatures in your bag at all times....to be prepared for your next Ace or a really bad round; easy to replenish as they get consumed. By the time you get your next hole in one, that scotch could be 45 years old.

Here's wishing you many more aces in years to come....

Congratulations to he who has been keeping his left arm straight, the Great Fumar.

We knew it was only a matter of time.

Wanna buy some hole in one insurance?

I think some credit must go to TAL for suggesting the bucket list thread. Maybe it got you to concentrate or MAYBE it was just kismet:joke:

As a way of showing my kudos i'll use a FUMAR signoff.

40 years of golf and still waiting for the first Hole in One Russ

Spectacular Mr. Fumar. The Bucket List thread was indeed a great idea. Gratitude lists are always a good thing. This is an excellent example of something to be grateful for. Cheers.

Cabo gave a good answer. Life expectance of a bottle of good scotch around here is very short. Shorter yet in a golf bag...............
